The speculation has ended. Brandon Marshall will not play for the Broncos any more. On Wednesday, the Broncos traded Marshall to the Dolphins for Miami’s second-round draft pick this year and in 2011.
There is little doubting Marshall’s immense talent as a wide receiver. You don’t make 307 catches for 3,710 yards and 23 touchdowns in the last three seasons by accident. The guy can play. And he can dominate.
Marshall has been the most reliable and most talented skill position player on the Broncos’ offense the last several years.
He has also been the most disgruntled. While his production was a bright spot, his conduct did not rise to the same level. That was tough to watch.
