Last night while Kyle and I were recording our podcast with Asian Orange for Broncos Nation Podcast we mused about why Brandon Marshall’s agent Kennard McGuire would be in the same city as all 32 NFL owners and coaches. We disagreed at first about why McGuire would be in town, but basically settled on the fact that he’s most likely there to speak to at least one of the teams in regards to Marshall.
The Denver Post’s Mike Klis writes today quoting Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll‘s comments made yesterday in regards to what type of talks have taken place between Marshall’s agent McGuire and Seahawks general manager John Schnieder.
“There has been some talk,” Carroll said. “John has handled that so far. But it’s very preliminary.“
Talk indicates that even if it is preliminary the Seahawks have began speaking about a contract with Marshall.This is not a Jamie Dukes quote/unquote, ‘Bombshell!’ by any means, but Carroll’s word choice shows that the Seahawks have not given up on their quest for obtaining Marshall and Klis’ article insinuates that McGuire is there to see the Seahawks.
However, McGuire’s presence in Orlando could mean that there’s interest from any of the NFL’s 32 teams and McGuire is there to handle it or at the very least to drum up interest. [dp/broncos]
My best guess is that Marshall will remain a Denver Broncos player as the time limit expires on being able to speak to other team’s restricted free agents, but there will be a feeding frenzy as the draft approaches. My hope is that Denver will stick to their guns and not accept anything less than a first round draft pick or the player equivalent of Marshall’s ability.
Here’s to hoping though… What do you think Nation? Where does he end up?
