Less Than Two Weeks To Grab Brandon Marshall

April 10th, 2010

In two weeks the 2010 NFL draft will be winding down its third and final day. And surely at that time troubled yet talented Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall will be under the employ of another team.

That’s the word from Peter King of SI.com. Fielding questions from fans on Twitter, King flatly claimed Marshall will be gone from the Broncos in the coming days leading to the draft.

@Anthony_Aveyard: U thnk by Draft Weeknd McDaniels will cave and move B MARSHALL 4 a 2nd?

@SI_PeterKing  Absolutely.

Joe brings you this because he understands many Bucs fans are pining for Marshall, and that the dearth of wide receiver talent on the Bucs is troubling to any sober Bucs fan.

Now Joe’s not totally advocating Bucs general manager Mark Dominik cough up a second round pick this year for Marshall. Let’s be honest: there’s a reason why Marshall hasn’t been traded yet. The guy has nearly as much baggage as Santa on Christmas Eve, only without the presents.

Would Marshall be an upgrade for the Bucs? No question. But what price is worth the risk? Remember, Marshall was benched for the final game of the 2009 season when the Broncos needed a win for a playoff berth.

That’s not counting how trouble seems to find Marshall during the offseason.

    And did AB work out well??? Stay young, Stay with the plan, through the Draft.

    Does that mean you are partially advocating it?

    Cmon Joe, spit it out, would you give up a number two for the guy or not? You have been dancing around this issue for weeks.

    And that is a yes or no queston!

    mark dominik will probably call denver right after some other team already trades for him the same way he was late to the party last year about cutler

    As much as I would like to see marshall in pewter and red I just don’t see dominck pullin the trigger he would rather get somones cast off wr like brown or draft two recievers.

    marshall is not coming here…thats wishful thinking!!! with all these way more aggresive teams out there tampa in on the bottom of the circle! we will see maybe a moce for tate or someone threw the draft…which i agree with others in a better move with having number 5 running things!

    Marshall is worth it. So what if he’s got issues and has a little bit a mouth?!?!?! All the elite receivers in the league are like that. See Ochocinco, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss. The reason he complains all the time, is because he wants to just get out of Denver! If we can waste almost 30 mil on Clayton, then there’s no excuse for not getting Marshall. If we can get him for about 30 or 35 mil, I say it’d be a good deal for an elite talent like him.

    In fact, I know something that most of you don’t know. In an interview 2 years ago during the 08 season, after the Broncos had beaten the bucs in a game, Marshall had stated that he always wanted to play for the Bucs. When he wasn’t drafted by them in the 3rd round of the draft years back, he said he was upset. Guess who we picked?! Maurice Stovall. After all, Marshall did go to college at UCF, so I think he’d like being back in Florida.

    I like Marshall. I hope we make the trade. He’s young, proven, and the death of his friend last year seems to have scared him straight in terms of off the field issues. He doesn’t like McDaniels, which is pretty clear, but Bryant didn’t like Parcells either. Did Marshall ever complain when Shanahan and Cutler were in town? I’m not saying that Morris is on the same level as Shanahan, but it’s also not like Cutler had a pro bowl year last year with Chicago.

    Trading for Marshall makes sense on so many levels…problem is Joel and Bryan aremt spendig money now period. I predict they will trade out of the third pick regardless of who is available. No way are they coughing up a top three signing bonus

    Tampa area is way to close to his home and there are too many distractions here for a player like Marshall. Won’t work out well.
