Broncos’ Marshall all kinds of happy

Brandon Marshall is trying to douse the drama surrounding him and stiff-arm any potential distraction his past drama may have brought to the team.

The Broncos’ once-star receiver was a soldier for the team-before-self concept today.

When Marshall was asked about not playing through most of the second quarter Sunday in a 27-6 victory against the Cleveland Browns, he said: “Sir, you keep asking the same question. I keep answering it. I don’t know what else you want me to do. I’m excited about playing against Oakland. I’m excited about us being 2-0. All I can do is do my job.

“Me being out there, not being out there as much as I used to be is something I have to get used to, but it’s the National Football league.

Things change. I think I’m good enough to be out there, but it doesn’t matter what I think, so all I can do is embrace it. I’ve learned from trying to fight the system. You know what, this is a great time of the season for us to be 2-0.”

Does this mean Marshall, who issued a trade request on June 12, and again August 17, is happy to be a Bronco?
