IT'S OFFICIAL!!! Marshall is headed out of town... according to Sharpe anyways.

So it's official, former Bronco legend and future NFL HOF'er Shannon Sharpe has given his two cents worth on the upcoming drama that will be Brandon Marshall. Sharpe told Mike Klis of the Denver Post that he believes it's too late to apologize by either side in the Marshall saga that began last off-season when Marshall was suspended by the team for conduct detrimental and ended with McDaniels sitting Marshall for the last game against Kansas City.

"Help me understand this: How can a guy catch 21 passes one week and then two weeks later he doesn't even play?" Sharpe told the Denver Post. "Once you go there, once you break that communication, once you break that trust, I don't know how you get that back. So Brandon Marshall and Coach (Josh) McDaniels, I don't know how they mend this."

In my opinion, if, and I say it's a BIG "IF" the Broncos don't re-sign Brandon, (because I think they will) then he will draw huge interest from numerous other teams who need a big play receiver like Marshall, and I'm not the only one who feels this way.

"I know personally there are three teams out there who are going to make a move for Brandon Marshall," Sharpe said.

One of those teams who are in desperate need of a receiver of Marshall's caliber are the Baltimore Ravens, who ironically, Sharpe played for after leaving the Broncos in 2000 only to return and end his career with Denver from 2002 to 2003.

It makes me think that maybe Shannon is acting as Brandon's surrogate agent?

If I were Coach McD and Pat Bowlen, I wouldn't let a receiver of Marshall's talents get away. I'd pay him Fitzgerald type money with every clause possible in his contract that allows me to essentially get him "blackballed" from the league if he gets a ticket for jaywalking!

Denver can't allow our biggest superstar to walk, it never works out for the team, ALWAYS for the player!

Let me know your thoughts!

Bill William said the same thing, to much has been said that can't be fixed.

Yet, I hope they are both wrong!
