According to the Denver Post, Brandon Marshall's agent, Kennard McGuire, sought out Broncos management to get a feel for the team's position on giving Marshall a contract extension.

This came on the first business day after Marshall was exonerated of battery charges following a trial Friday in Atlanta.

The Broncos told McGuire that at this time they were not willing to rework the wide receiver's deal, which has one year and $2.2 million remaining. Marshall then reiterated his trade demand that he first issued in June.

Broncos' Marshall seeks pay boost

What is up with this new coach in Denver? He is about to enter a season where he will be handed his @#$. Marshall Just needs to wait it out a few games then play on the wreakage of a once pretty good team. McDaniels will be gone in two years. He is in way over his head. As far as Marshall, he is anemotional guy that is driven by need to succeed. In the NFL that reconishion comes by way of large contracts. # years ago Denver got a great player cheap and as seen before you end up paying on the back end. If they pay the guy he will shut up and play. This team needs that or they could continue to see a continued exiting of thier talent to greeener pastures.

Broncos' Marshall seeks pay boost

I think Marshall should hold out for a better quarterback, forget the money.  I view this as a smart move because if he doesn't get his payday now (after last seasons Cutler assisted numbers), he will see his value plummet after Orton throws more balls caught by the opposing teams than him.  The fact he is arguably the best player on the team(definitely offensively) and making crumbs should be grounds for a significant raise, however I must say that I would show up and do what millions only dream of for much less than he will be paid on his existing contract.  Either way both sides have to work it out because they are only making each others situation worse moving forward, for the upcoming season and beyond.

Personally think Marshall should stop his whining and play the game. The time for contract negotiations was 3 yrs ago when he signed it or next year when it expires. Why bother signing a contract at all it's broken at the drop of a hat?Cry
