Default Brandon Marshall traded to the Dolphins

Wow...way to be impatient Steelers. This dude is more of a cancer than Santonio and he gets a 2nd rounder this year and a 2nd rounder next year?

The Denver Broncos are trading wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the Miami Dolphins for a second-round pick in next week's NFL draft and what league sources say is an additional second-round pick in 2011.


Marshall

The trade is contingent upon the league processing the paperwork and Marshall passing his physical, neither of which is expected to be an issue on Wednesday.

Marshall is scheduled to fly to Miami to take his physical and, if he passes, sign what will be one of the most lucrative wide receiver deals in NFL history, according to league sources. In return, the Broncos will get two high draft picks for a player who caused them headaches in addition to making plays.

In little more than one year, with a pair of blockbuster trades, Denver has recouped two first-round picks, two second-round picks, a third-round pick and quarterback Kyle Orton in exchange for Jay Cutler and Marshall.

The Broncos now head into next Thursday's draft armed with three picks in the top two rounds, but with a big hole fill at wide receiver. Marshall caught 101 passes for 1,120 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. He has 327 career receptions for 4,019 yards and 25 touchdowns in four seasons, all in Denver.

The trade also shakes things up in the AFC East, as Miami will match and arguably top the deal the New York Jets made earlier this week, when they traded a fifth-round draft pick for talented but troubled Steelers recevier Santonio Holmes.

Marshall is one of the game's best young wide receivers, a mercurial talent at the position Miami needed help at most. He is in the prime of his career. But like Holmes, he also brings a reputation of being difficult to handle and a legal record that has him one strike from a year-long suspension.

Once Marshall signed his $2.5 million tender with the Broncos on Tuesday, it freed Denver to begin shopping him. Miami was hot after Marshall, as was Seattle. Tampa Bay showed some interest and even the Jets considered making a play for Marshall before their deal for Holmes, according to sources.

and the AFC East has just become a nightmare to us. All of the best receivers are now playing on the AFC and we go against the North this year and the East. If we dont get out defenses straightened out then were going to get torched all season long.

We are definitely in some trouble...more and more teams are passing us by while we just give away players.

Marshall is an elite receiver, no doubt, but so is Santonio. He might not be as big or physical as Marshall but he is just as talented. No way Marshall is worth two 2nd round picks and Holmes is just a 5th. Hell Moss was only worth a 4th, even tho it was the Raiders. I think we will regret just giving Holmes away. The Jets were going after Marshall as well but they stopped as soon as they robbed the Steelers!

The AFC East is going to be fun this upcoming year. The only team that won't matter will be the Bills.

I wouldn't put Holmes in that elite receiver category just yet. Damn good, but not elite.

I disagree. Marshall is impossible to cover, flat out impossible. The man had 21 catches in a game, right? Holmes is good, but he's not even close to sniffing the talent in Marshall's jock.

Yeah he had 21 catches in a game but his avg. was less than 10 yards per catch. It's still impressive but Santonio had more yards. Take away 13 catches from Marshall (I know it's pointless but he didn't have more than 8 catches in any other game) and he only has 9 more catches than Tone with less yards. Marshall is a beast fasho but Santonio is right there with him. Plus we had way more weapons on offense than Denver did.
