McDaniels says Broncos will continue talking with Marshall
The Denver Post
DENVER, Colorado – With the agent representing receiver Brandon Marshall coming out to speak on behalf of Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, the Broncos have responded with the message they can speak for themselves.
“We met after Pat’s meeting with Brandon and are going to continue our dialogue with Brandon and his representative,” said Broncos coach Josh McDaniels. “We look forward to having Brandon at training camp.”
Marshall and his agent, Kennard McGuire, have taken the offensive. McGuire told Fox 31 News that “there was a request for a trade. Mr. Bowlen has said that ownership will do everything in its power to accommodate his wishes.”
However, there is no indication the Broncos will seek to deal Marshall, who is unhappy with his contract that will pay him $2.198 million this season, the final year of his deal.
Marshall has demonstrated his dissatisfaction with his contract by skipping the three-week, voluntary passing camp, then a three-day mandatory minicamp last weekend.
If he doesn’t show up by August 12, Marshall could risk forfeiting his fourth year of service time, which would put him another year away from unrestricted free agency.
