Update on Brandon Marshall

Looks like the on again off again courting of Brandon Marshall by the Seattle Seahawks are on again.

Mike Kils of the Denver Post and Ian Henson of is reporting that the talks between the team and Marshall's agent Kennard McGuire indicate that even if it's preliminary, the team has began talking about a contract with Brandon.

"This is not a Jamie Dukes (NFL Network Analyst) quote, unquote "Bombshell" by any means, but Carroll's (current Seahawks Head Coach) word choice shows that the Seahawks have not given up on their quest for obtaining Marshall and Kils' (Denver Post columnist) article insinuates that McGuire is there to see the Seahawks."

With all that being said though, Brandon's agent being in Orlando for the NFL Owner's meetings could mean that there could be interest from any of the NFL's 32 teams, and that McGuire is there to handle it or at the very least spark up more interest in his client's services.

My thought is that come April 15th when the date passes for teams to speak with and negotiate with RFA's Brandon will still be a Bronco and for this fan, that's what I want. I want to see Brandon in the Orange and Blue for the rest of his career. He's too good of a player to let go. It goes back to the old addage, "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush." Someone who posts 3 consecutive 100 catch, 1000 yard seasons doesn't come around all that often. With all the off the field issues that are in his PAST, he still gives Bronco Nation the best opportunity to win on Sundays.

As always I welcome your thoughts.

I agree 100%. It would a HUGE mistake to let him go. Mcdaniels needs to get off his high horse and accept that we are better with him and trading him would only encourage more of the bronco nation to turn against him. Winning is #1 in Denver, mcdaniels ego needs to take a back seat or his time in Denver will be short lived and he would have completely blown a great opportunity in Denver to make a name for himself
