Brandon Marshall: 'My wife did not stab me'

Way back in April, Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall was taken to the hospital after being stabbed at his home in Florida. Police arrested his wife, Michi Nagomi-Marshall, on aggravated assault charges. (She was later arrested again at their home.)

A little over a week ago, Marshall reportedly chatted with the Broward County Sheriff's Department about the incident, despite his best attempts to avoid such a conversation.

On Friday, he talked publicly about the incident for the first time and claimed his wife didn't stab him.

"I can't talk about the details of the incident because it's still an open case, but I did talk to the state attorney's office last month and the one thing I made clear was my wife did not stab me," Marshall said, per Omar Kelly of the Miami Sun-Sentinel. "She didn't assault me.

"We were having a marital dispute that got heated, but it didn't happen as reported."

All couples do have arguments, but it's a little more awkward when one of parties in the relationship ends up getting stabbed. When the other party in the relationship admits to the stabbing, that doesn't help things either.

Given that everyone's okay (insofar as we know), what about the football aspect of this? Marshall has received support from the Dolphins, who have a pretty penny -- draft picks to acquire him as well as a hefty contract extension -- invested in the wideout.

That they would cut him in such a critical year for the front office and coaching staff seems unlikely. And the market for trading him, especially with a shortened offseason, a bigger free-agent pool and Marshall's history of off-field troubles, won't exactly be expansive.

So more than likely, he ends up sticking with the Fins, while treading on thin ice and under the watchful eye of 280 Park Avenue once the lockout ends.

  I just saw on CNN, that it wasn't his wife that stabbed him.  It was actually Col. Mustard, with a sharpened candlestick that did it.  It was in the kitchen, even though earlier reports said it was in the library.  The original statement was messed up, when both confessed that they didn't know what a library was.  Yes, we are all this stupid! lol
