Denver owner Pat Bowlen indicated that star receiver Brandon Marshall could get a contract extension down the road. Marshall wanted a trade earlier this year because he wanted a raise.
Marshall has seemed to calm down and he is now saying he is happy in Denver. If Marshall finishes the year strong on the field and stays out of trouble off the field, Denver could offer him a deal in the offseason.
Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce was critical of the Raiders after the 44-7 thrashing the Giants gave the Raiders on Sunday. Pierce said playing Oakland was like a “scrimmage’ and he was stunned how listless Oakland’s offensive players were in the beat down. Every day, there seems to be a damaging report about Oakland. It is definitely not getting better there.
Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli says there is no trade of linebacker Derrick Johnson in play.
Denver cornerback Champ Bailey talks about the team’s turnaround in a radio interview.
