Marshall was released by the Saints on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. A healthy scratch the past four weeks, Marshall never actually played in a game during his month-long stint with the Saints. He caught 11 of 23 targets for 136 yards and a touchdown in six games for Seattle earlier in the season before 2017 seventh-round pick David Moore subsequently supplanted Marshall for the No. 3 receiver role. Marshall will have a tough time finding a spot with another team this season and may ultimately decide to retire.
Marshall (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 14 tilt against the Buccaneers. Marshall will be on the sideline for the fourth consecutive game, as the Saints will roll with Michael Thomas, Tre'Quan Smith, Austin Carr and Keith Kirkwood as their top four receiving options.
Marshall (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Thursday at Dallas, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. A healthy scratch for a third consecutive game, Marshall again will don street clothes instead of pads as a member of the Saints. It remains to be seen the scenario in which he'll be given a shot to play, but with Tre'Quan Smith back from a one-game absence, Marshall's services are needed less than they were on Thanksgiving against the Falcons, when he also was inactive.
Marshall (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Thursday against the Falcons. In his first two chances to suit up as a member of the Saints, Marshall has been deemed a healthy scratch. Granted, he's only been a part of the organization for 10 days, but rookie wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith (toe) also is inactive, so routes would have been available for Marshall. Instead, the Saints will roll with Michael Thomas, Keith Kirkwood and Austin Carr at wideout.
Marshall isn't expected to be active Sunday against the Eagles, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports. Marshall hasn't even spent a week with his new organization, so it's no surprise the 34-year-old is slated to be among the Saints' inactives Week 11. While he works his way into the good graces of Sean Payton and Drew Brees, Marshall may have a tough time becoming a regular in an offense that revolves around Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara and (to a lesser extent) Mark Ingram.
