Broncos LB Brandon Marshall hopes to be ready for training camp
Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall is still nursing a foot injury, but he said Wednesday he'll be able to participate in training camp, reports the team's official website. "I'll be back in training camp. That's what the word is," Marshall said. "I should be able to do some drills at the start of training camp. I'm not sure about everything else." Marshall suffered a mid-foot sprain last season, which required two screws inserted into his foot during the offseason. "I haven't really done a whole lot on it," Marshall said. "I do a lot more in the training room. My surgeon told me it will probably bother me a little bit throughout the whole year -- nothing to keep me out."

Broncos LB Brandon Marshall still rehabbing foot injury
Broncos inside linebacker Brandon Marshall was able to lift weights with his teammates during Wednesday's OTA practice, according to the team's website. Marshall is still recovering from a foot injury which has kept him off the practice field thus far. "I think it will be fairly soon," Marshall said, "because I feel really good, honestly." Marshall injured his foot in a December game against the Chargers and later played through the pain in the playoffs against the Colts. He said that watching practice hasn't been as much fun as being out there. "It's kind of tough, because while I'm out here, I need to pay attention; I need to watch more film, because when you do it more, you get a better feel for it," he said. "I have to learn through visual learning and just trying to soak up as much information as I can, because when training camp comes, it's going to come fast, and I've got to learn fast. I'll be all right.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall: Geno Smith has 'drive' and 'passion'
Jets quarterback Geno Smith has seen far more downs than ups in two NFL seasons. Entering his third year, Smith will be asked to produce far more, especially now that he has receiver Brandon Marshall in town. Marshall, in an interview with the New York media on Friday, was complimentary of the young quarterback, who has yet to throw more touchdowns than interceptions in a single season. "I just think he has a drive and a passion that a lot of people don't see," Marshall said, via the New York Post. "From my conversations with him so far, it's really got me excited." Smith only managed 2,525 yards, 13 touchdowns with 13 interceptions a season ago. He was sometimes pulled in favor of backup Michael Vick in games where he struggled mightily. Assuming Smith is the starter in 2015, he won't have as much leeway with new coach Todd Bowles at the helm.

Brandon Marshall: 'I've got 10 more years left in me'
Wideout Brandon Marshall, who turns 31 on March 23, said he's excited to be joining the Jets and has a lot of good football left, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "It was pretty cool to be able to sit back and figure out who really wanted me and the right place for me," Marshall told the Jets' website. "Being able to be in New York with coach (Todd) Bowles, I thought, was an amazing opportunity and one that I thought I couldn't pass up." Bowles was an assistant in Miami when Marshall played for the Dolphins in 2010 and 2011. Jets receivers coach Karl Dorrell coached the Dolphins' receivers in 2010."I think it will be a great transition," Marshall said of his trade from the Bears to the Jets. "Coach Bowles allows guys to be themselves. He treats everyone like men and like pros. That's what it's about right there. That's what I've seen work, is when guys feel comfortable coming to work and they're not micromanaged and there's someone there they can believe in, they can trust. He's an amazing leader." Marshall said he's "got 10 more years left in me. I can still do everything, and I'm excited to do that."
