Broncos coach: No trade talks over Marshall
ENGLEWOOD, Colorado – Moving to quell rumors, Denver coach Josh McDaniels said Wednesday the team had not held any talks involving a trade of suspended Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
“We’re looking forward to having Brandon back on Sept. 6 and starting our preparations for Cincinnati with him,” McDaniels said. “There’s no discussions whatsoever taking place between the Denver Broncos and any team in the NFL regarding Brandon Marshall.”
There were reports the New York Jets would be interested in trading for him.
McDaniels suspended Marshall for the rest of the preseason last Friday for detrimental conduct stemming for insubordinate actions during a practice.
Marshall, who has participated in only a handful of practices during the offseason, has clashed with the organization since the team rebuffed his overtures for a new contract and did not act on his request for a trade.
The end of his suspension coincides with the Broncos’ week of preparations for their Sept. 13 opener at Cincinnati.
