Broncos WR Marshall likely to be back for minicamp
The Denver Post
For all the offseason drama involving their top two offensive stars of the past two seasons, the Broncos have yet to encounter an official holdout.
There’s been a trade. There’s been a rehabilitation out of state with an underlying feel of an unofficial holdout.
But a holdout can’t officially begin until Friday, when the Broncos hold their mandatory minicamp. There will not be a Jay Cutler watch. The once disgruntled quarterback has been traded to the Chicago Bears, where presumably he is no longer disgruntled.
That leaves receiver Brandon Marshall, who three weeks ago decided to shift his rehab program for a surgically repaired hip to Orlando, Fla.
Marshall is likely to return to the team’s Dove Valley headquarters by Friday. In the final year of a four-year contract that will pay him $2.198 million this year, Marshall would be subject to a fine if he continued to stay in Orlando. The Broncos have been involved in organized team activities (OTAs) the past three weeks, but those were designated as voluntary.
Marshall would not have been practicing, anyway, because of his hip injury, but he is the only Broncos player who has not been present in the locker room the past three weeks.
