Evening notes: Marshall update
Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson
The Denver Post reports that Denver receiver Brandon Marshall met with team owner Pat Bowlen on Friday afternoon. Marshall skipped the team's mandatory minicamp Friday. The camp runs through Sunday.
Marshall is staying away because of medical trust issues and because he wants a pay raise. Marshall has one year remaining on his contract. He can't practice until training camp because he is recovering from a hip surgery.
The San Francisco Chronicle details reasons why the Raiders likely won't pursue quarterback Michael Vick, who was released by Atlanta. I agree. I just don't see it happening. Oakland has plenty of quarterbacks and just because Vick is a troubled player looking for a second chance it doesn't mean the Raiders are going to give him the chance.
Former Kansas City quarterback Trent Green has retired. Green was a Pro Bowl quarterback for the Chiefs as he played five years for the team.
