Marshall Claims He Will Attend Camp

July 16, 2009

Picture 1Well, it looks like it is about time for Brandon Marshall to start saying all of the right things again. Last week, in an interview with Yahoo! Sports Marshall expressed how he was working really hard to get in shape and recognizes that he still is under contract with the Broncos. But yesterday at the ESPY’s, he took it a bit further than he had been. 

“Right now I’m obligated, I’m under contract…. It’s $14,000 a day if I miss,” Marshall said. “I’m not stupid. So I will be there.” As PFT so fondly pointed out: (Whether Marshall is or isn’t stupid is a topic about which reasonable minds could differ.  Clearly, he has done more than a few stupid things over the years.) Touche. 

But the truth of the matter is, the reality of whether he will come or not is still up in the air. Marshall needs to say these things because the last thing he needs is to damage his already tarnished reputation even more. While it would make sense assuming that there are rumors flying that he might even be broke and that he desperately needs this money, we still don’t know.

Personally I think more likely than that scenario is the one that Marshall realizes that if he doesn’t attend training camp, it will jeopardize his 2009 season, weakening his value as a potential free agent and affecting how much money he might earn.

Either way, let’s hope what he is saying is true.

    Gotta keep ‘im, pay him make him happy, then all this would go away, even if he has some more off field trouble and even if his stats aren’t as good as last year, pay him and keep him around.

      Jon, that comment makes absolutely NO sense. Why should we play an off field nuisance who can not be relied upon to be there when we need him, who might not even deserve the paycheck he is going to make “if his stats aren’t as good as last year”. Why would you want to keep him. Wide Receivers like him are a dime a dozen. We could easily draft a player just as good or just trade for another one if we wanted to. I want to keep him, but if he doesn’t deserve what he is asking for than he should just pack his bags and get out.

    To clarify, what I’m saying is this, Brandon is young and will probably make some more mistakes and maybe not put up numbers like last year this year, but in the long run I think the Broncos would benefit from keeping him.
