Brandon Marshall Traded From Denver To Miami Dolphins


Wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been sent by the Denver Broncos to the Miami Dolphins in a trade, according to a report in the Miami Herald.

Marshall was obtained in a deal that has Miami sending their second-round draft pick for this year, as well as their second-round pick in the 2011 draft. 

The two-time Pro Bowler signed a tender on Tuesday (April 13), clearing him for a trade and fueling the trade speculation that had been surrounding him all off-season. 

Despite having three consecutive seasons with 100 catches and 100 yards, Marshall has had off-the-field problems, including some encounters with the law and a high profile argument with Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels. The receiver was even suspended last pre-season for acting out during practice. 

Marshall was paid $2.2 million last year, and according to the Herald his deal “will average at least $10 million per season and also could include guaranteed monies exceeding $30 million.”

Marshall could arrive in Miami for a physical as early as today. –Jonathan Eiseman
