Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been suspended for, “Conduct detrimental to the team.”
Adam Schefter is reporting via his twitter account that Marshall’s suspension will be for the remainder of the preseason and he may be available for the season opener.
The maximum suspension time allowable under the Collective Bargaining Agreement is four games. Marshall will not be able to appeal through the NFL, however, he would be able to appeal through a third party. As I pointed out in yesterday’s post I believe that Marshall will have a hard time doing this as I have a feeling his lawyer may have ties to the Broncos. (Then again, I could be wrong, I’m not a lawyer).
More details to follow as they become available… Press release and poll after the jump.
