Marshall Skips Out on Workout

June 12, 2009

The Denver Post reported today that Brandon Marshall was a no-show this morning to the mandatory off-season workouts. Marshall is in the final year of a four-year contract that will pay him $2.198 million this year.

He is supposed to be unhappy with the contract as well as unhappy with the training staff that mis-diagnosed his hip injury last season and now is having to get lots of work done on it.

Marshall, who is recovering from hip surgery, would not have been able to participate in the three practices this weekend, but was required to show up for rehab treatments. There is speculation that the reason he did not show was just because Marshall did not want to be diagnosed by the Broncos training staff.

Now, I have said that McD needs to tread lightly on his contract because without him our offense is screwed. That said, Marshall does not seem to be disappointed with McDaniels or the team itself but more his contract and the training staff.

Marshall is in Denver right now and will reportedly have a meeting with Bowlen. McDaniels will address the situation later today.

    this stinks, and advertizing on NFL jerseys is a BIG NO!! NO! NO! NO!

    keep that junk out of football! thats one of the things that make s the NFL so great its just football – no political, no advertising, just football can we PLEASE keep it that way

      mr. me I totally disagree about the advertising. right now that is what we need. football is a business and they are only here because they make money. with this economy the only way that the nfl will be able to afford these high player salaries is with advertising. we need that.

    what? garrett that attitude stinks.
    tell me did u (if u ever did) play football because it was a way to make money and it was a business? i know the NFL is different on account of it is a business but its still a sport-game

    dont pay the players as much advertising for a team is one thing, but on a jersey – thats wrong

      first off it is a practice jersey. this is what you will see in a practice not on the field. second, we can’t afford the player and front office salaries if not for the advertising so anything that will help the NFL in the economy should be looked at seriously. it is not an attitude, it is a reality.

    bm is a very good player but his attitude stinks. Trade him to the Cardinals and get a WR that doesn’t have off the field issues. He will be the new TO, not good for the locker room not good for the team. He is to hurt and to immature to be asking for more money.If he can prove to the team he wants to be around and can be productive then show him the money.
