View Full Version : Football Bombshell alert issued in Denver


-King-
08-17-2009, 07:34 PM
Jamie Dukes of NFL Network has dropped a hint, Twitter style, that big news might soon be emerging from Broncos' camp.

Specifically, Dukes says there's a "BOMBSHELL ALERT COMING OUT OF DENVER."

Dukes later offered this clue: "No one died if that's what you're worried about but i just don't know what they are thinking."

He also says that "Jason LaCanfora is working the story and will be posting it on his blog late tonight."

Our guess is that the Broncos are either trading Brandon Marshall or taking some sort of action against him based on the perception that he's in some way embellishing an injury that has kept him out of action for most of camp.

It's also possible that they are signing Brett Favre.

We haven't asked Jay Glazer to make a prediction on that one.

Yet.

The only thing about which we're reasonably certain at this point is that La Canfora had better get his ass in gear, because thanks to Dukes the fox hunt is on.

If Marshall is traded, then we have to thank God for sending McD to the AFC West.

If Favre signs with the Donkeys that will mean that the Chiefs should be able to add another 2 or 3 picks this season.

Marshall reiterates trade demand to Broncos


Marshall
Brandon Marshall and his agent met with Broncos coach Josh McDaniels on Monday, and reiterated that Marshall wants a new contract or to be traded.
However, the Broncos reportedly remained "adamant" that Marshall won't be dealt, and Schefter says a "standoff...(that) could be ugly" may be forthcoming. Marshall didn't practice on Monday, and risks $15,888 daily fines if he follows through with a holdout. Marshall is believed to be targeting an extension similar to the one Atlanta gave Roddy White ($48+ million over six seasons). Aug. 17 - 10:43 pm et

Broncos apologize to WR Brandon Marshall (http://blogs.nfl.com/2009/08/17/broncos-apologize-to-wr-brandon-marshall/) <!-- p class="post-info-author">By Jason La Canfora</p -->

Posted: August 17th, 2009 | Jason La Canfora | Tags: apology (http://blogs.nfl.com/tag/apology/), Brandon Marshall (http://blogs.nfl.com/tag/brandon-marshall/), Brian Xanders (http://blogs.nfl.com/tag/brian-xanders/), Denver Broncos (http://blogs.nfl.com/tag/denver-broncos/), Harvey Steinberg (http://blogs.nfl.com/tag/harvey-steinberg/), Jay Cutler (http://blogs.nfl.com/tag/jay-cutler/), Joe Ellis (http://blogs.nfl.com/tag/joe-ellis/), Josh McDaniels (http://blogs.nfl.com/tag/josh-mcdaniels/), Kennard McGuire (http://blogs.nfl.com/tag/kennard-mcguire/), Pat Bwolen (http://blogs.nfl.com/tag/pat-bwolen/), trade demand (http://blogs.nfl.com/tag/trade-demand/)

The Denver Broncos apologized to disgruntled wide receiver Brandon Marshall this week for an incident involving their public relations staff, according to league and team sources, another unusual event in what has been a trying offseason between the sides.

Broncos chief operating officer Joe Ellis apologized to Marshall on behalf of the organization after a junior member of the team’s public relations staff was instructing players Friday on what to say after the team’s preseason game that night, according to sources. The PR staffer specifically was urging them not to express too much joy or emotion if questioned by the media about Marshall’s acquittal on battery charges earlier that day in a Georgia courtroom, the sources said.

Marshall, who has been seeking a trade, already had trust issues with the Broncos, clashing over his contract (he would like an extension beyond the year remaining on his rookie deal) and the team’s treatment of his hip injury, and this incident only deepened that chasm, according to sources.

Marshall, 25, was accompanied by lawyer Harvey Steinberg at the face-to-face meeting with Ellis, and believes the “coaching” being done by the public relations staffer was in fact a directive from upper management, according to league sources. Broncos sources rebuffed that notion and attributed the incident to the public relations staffer being “overzealous” and acting on his own.
Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Brian Xanders had no knowledge of the actions of the public relations employee until learning about it after the fact, according to the team. Both Bowlen and McDaniels expressed their happiness for Marshall in public remarks made Friday night. Marshall and his agent, Kennard McGuire, declined to comment.
Marshall has performed at a Pro-Bowl level, but has endured several off-field legal issues. The Broncos have been unwilling to re-do his contract to this point, and, barring an extension to the collective bargaining agreement, could retain his rights with a qualifying offer as a restricted free agent in 2010, a scenario in which Marshall would lose a chance at unrestricted free agency. The team has not shopped Marshall to this point.

Marshall missed much of the offseason due to his recovery from hip surgery, and skipped Denver’s mini camp. He missed two weeks of training-camp practice as well, but returned to the field Sunday. The Broncos have had a difficult first few months under their new regime after Mike Shanahan was fired, suffering through a public spat with starting quarterback Jay Cutler, who was eventually traded to Chicago.

Marshall is in his fourth year out of Central Florida, and was a fourth-round pick in 2006. He caught a career-high 104 passes last season.

Marshall has performed at a Pro-Bowl level, but has endured several off-field legal issues. The Broncos have been unwilling to re-do his contract to this point, and, barring an extension to the collective bargaining agreement, could retain his rights with a qualifying offer as a restricted free agent in 2010, a scenario in which Marshall would lose a chance at unrestricted free agency. The team has not shopped Marshall to this point.

Marshall missed much of the offseason due to his recovery from hip surgery, and skipped Denver’s mini camp. He missed two weeks of training-camp practice as well, but returned to the field Sunday. The Broncos have had a difficult first few months under their new regime after Mike Shanahan was fired, suffering through a public spat with starting quarterback Jay Cutler, who was eventually traded to Chicago.

Marshall is in his fourth year out of Central Florida, and was a fourth-round pick in 2006. He caught a career-high 104 passes last season.

That's it. The big bombshell?

I thought he was running out of money.

If he's gonna get fined for every day he's not there, he's not gonna get paid shit. Then Denver will just trade him away next season.

From Mile High Report ~ 9:00 PM:

Regarding the "Broncos Bombshell Alert" from PFT

Brandon Krisztal of KKFN was just on with D-Mac, and he said that he's hearing one of 2 things. A) Brandon Marshall may be bringing a lawsuit concerning his injury. OR B) The Broncos are in talks with none other than Brett Favre

I absolutely do NOT see that happening. Especially when a team like the Vikings really are just a QB away from winning the NFCN division.

This might have been sad given that the pinnacle of the season would have come at the 2 week of preseason.

To go from having arguably the most dynamic young QB-WR combos in the league to Orton and...LMAO. I don't care. Orton is enough.

Oh, I can provide a nice example if you'd like.

Yeah, you'd like:

Every time I run in to this 20-something Donko fan, he get's that "oh shit" look on his face like a kid with hand in cookie jar, bows his head in deep, plentiful shame, and tries to laugh the pain away.

Broncos apologize to WR Brandon Marshall

Posted: August 17th, 2009 | Jason La Canfora | Tags: apology, Brandon Marshall, Brian Xanders, Denver Broncos, Harvey Steinberg, Jay Cutler, Joe Ellis, Josh McDaniels, Kennard McGuire, Pat Bwolen, trade demand

The Denver Broncos apologized to disgruntled wide receiver Brandon Marshall this week for an incident involving their public relations staff, according to league and team sources, another unusual event in what has been a trying offseason between the sides.

Broncos chief operating officer Joe Ellis apologized to Marshall on behalf of the organization after a junior member of the team’s public relations staff was instructing players Friday on what to say after the team’s preseason game that night, according to sources. The PR staffer specifically was urging them not to express too much joy or emotion if questioned by the media about Marshall’s acquittal on battery charges earlier that day in a Georgia courtroom, the sources said.

Marshall, who has been seeking a trade, already had trust issues with the Broncos, clashing over his contract (he would like an extension beyond the year remaining on his rookie deal) and the team’s treatment of his hip injury, and this incident only deepened that chasm, according to sources.

Marshall, 25, was accompanied by lawyer Harvey Steinberg at the face-to-face meeting with Ellis, and believes the “coaching” being done by the public relations staffer was in fact a directive from upper management, according to league sources. Broncos sources rebuffed that notion and attributed the incident to the public relations staffer being “overzealous” and acting on his own.

Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Brian Xanders had no knowledge of the actions of the public relations employee until learning about it after the fact, according to the team. Both Bowlen and McDaniels expressed their happiness for Marshall in public remarks made Friday night. Marshall and his agent, Kennard McGuire, declined to comment.

Marshall has performed at a Pro-Bowl level, but has endured several off-field legal issues. The Broncos have been unwilling to re-do his contract to this point, and, barring an extension to the collective bargaining agreement, could retain his rights with a qualifying offer as a restricted free agent in 2010, a scenario in which Marshall would lose a chance at unrestricted free agency.

I hope you're kidding. Just because he played in the NFL doesn't mean he knows shit. Jamie Dukes is the stupid motherfucker who recently picked Mike Vick as the player he'd build a franchise around. He has proven over and over again that he knows absolutely nothing about football.
