Marshall to Seattle?

Posted on: March 5, 2010 3:26 pm

Would I give up the sixth overall pick in the draft for Denver receiver Brandon Marshall -- which means paying him a contract that will likely average about $12 million a year?

That's a tough one.

Marshall is reportedly scheduled to visit with Seattle Saturday and word is the Seahawks will try to sign him to an offer sheet. The Broncos would have seven days to match it, or get back the sixth pick in the draft.

The two sides could also negotiate a lesser package, which is possible.

Marshall is a really good player. He does come with baggage, but I think a lot of that is overrated. My question with the Seahawks bid land him is this: Who will throw it to him?

Matt Hasselbeck looks done. Maybe the Seahawks will take Jimmy Clausen with their second first-round pick.

You have to think with Paul Allen money the Seahawks will get Marshall if they want him.
I like Seattle's aggression. And, to be honest, I like Marshall.

I told him at the Pro Bowl that no team would trade and pay for him. Maybe that won't happen, but Seattle seems willing to part with a first-round pick and pay him.

Same thing, I guess.

Marshall to Seattle?

Now, since Detroit payed all that money for Nate Burleson, the price tag for receivers like Marshall and Austin just got bumped up. Bad team-itis, huh? The Lions just set the bar and are forcing other teams to spend accordingly.

Marshall to Seattle?

The #6 pick is definately worth giving up. Seattle knows what it's getting in Marshall: an elite NFL WR entering his prime.
