Marshall is doing nothing but lowering his own value on the trading block. It's become quite a soap opera here locally. What a douche.

Broncos Suspend Marshall

Broncos suspend Marshall for conduct detrimental to team
Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos have suspended Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall for unspecified "detrimental" conduct amid a rocky summer training camp.

Brandon Marshall, WR
Denver Broncos

Career Statistics
Receptions: 226
Yards: 2,899
Touchdowns: 15
The Broncos announced the suspension Friday but didn't say how long it would last.

Marshall has been open about his unhappiness with the Broncos and asked for a new contract or a trade. He acknowledged he hasn't learned new coach Josh McDaniels' playbook and was held out of last Sunday's preseason game at Seattle.

During Wednesday's warmups, Marshall walked while the rest of the team was running, punted a ball away instead of handing it to a ball boy and swatted away a pass thrown to him. The incidents were caught on video and aired by KMGH-TV.

Looks like they did just that.


Broncos' Marshall suspended over conduct

By Mike Klis

The Denver Post

For his punt and other acts of misbehavior, the Broncos have given receiver Brandon Marshall the boot.

The Broncos have suspended Marshall for conduct detrimental to the team.

Marshall's apology Thursday night on ESPN was too late. The punishment stems from Marshall's shameful display of unprofessionalism during practice Wednesday. He was lackadaisical during individual running drills. He didn't run routes or catch passes during another position drill, instead choosing to hold a dummy and knocking the receivers as they came off the line.

A KMGH-7 video caught Marshall punting the ball away after one drill instead of handing it to a ball boy, as the players are told.

Marshall was held out of practice Wednesday, but that was before the Broncos were aware of the magnitude of his insubordination.

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels decided to suspend Marshall this morning. The length of the suspension is not known although Marshall is not expected to play in the Broncos' next preseason game Sunday night against the Chicago Bears and his former quarterback, Jay Cutler.

It's possible Marshall could be suspended without pay into the early part of the regular season. Last year, the Carolina Panthers suspended receiver Steve Smith for two games for his part in a brawl with a teammate..

Marshall caught 206 passes the previous two seasons for the Broncos, enough production for him to request a contract extension that has one year and $2.198 million remaining. He has twice requested a trade.

Perhaps realizing the circulating video of his misconduct could all but kill his ability to get traded, Marshall went on ESPN's NFL Live show at 10:42 p.m. MST to explain his actions.

"Me punting the ball was definitely frustration," Marshall said. "It was an error in judgment. There was a lot of frustration (Wednesday) coming out of a meeting."

McDaniels would not explain the reason behind Marshall's absence from practice Thursday.

Who cares. He has done nothing but embarass himself time and time again.

I hope he is inactive all season. He is the type of guy that will wake up one day broke and not understand why no one respects him

Re: Ladies and Gentleman I present...
The Broncos are officially competing with the Raiders for the most unstable team in the AFC West. Or maybe just the AFC.

Re: Ladies and Gentleman I present...
I think he can be suspended for either four or six weeks max before they have to reinstate him.
