Adam Schefter talks about the Jets are reportedly interested in acquiring Brandon Marshall (1:13)

Newsday reports that the New York Jets are exploring a trade for suspended Denver receiver Brandon Marshall.

The real question is: Are the Denver Broncos considering trading Marshall?

ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that Denver sources claim the team has had no contact with the Jets. From the folks in Denver I’ve talked to, the Broncos are still reluctant to trade Marshall.

Now, after his suspension and the events leading up to it, the Broncos are more willing to listen. But still they want at least a first-rounder for Marshall.

Overall, though, the Broncos would rather keep Marshall this year and get some production out of him. Remember, the Broncos are trying to make a stand here. After the Jay Cutler fiasco, they want to make sure the locker room knows it is not in control. If Denver trades Marshall it will be on the team's terms.
