A look at the Marshall trade market
By Bill Williamson
Expect Denver to listen to offers for Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall this week in preparation for the start of league's trade season Friday.
With the help of the NFL Blog Network, here is a look at some of the potential landing spots:
Baltimore: The Ravens have been linked to Marshall since before last season. The Ravens have a huge need at receiver and Marshall would fit.
Chicago: The Bears don’t have much ammunition. But a Jay Cutler-Brandon Marshall reunion has to be intriguing for Chicago.
Cincinnati: The Bengals need a receiver. Badly. But it is unlikely they will pay big for Marshall.
Miami: Marshall would fit in with the Dolphins, but would Bill Parcells pursue the troubled Marshall?
Seattle: This may be the front runner to land the receiver. The Seahawks have players to trade and Marshall would like to reunite with former Denver assistant coach Jeremy Bates, who is now Seattle’s offensive coordinator.
Tampa Bay: The Buccaneers could use Marshall, but they may be worried about his off-field behavior.
Washington: New Redskins coach Mike Shanahan could always make a play for his former Denver star.
