According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall has signed his restricted free agency tender.

Schefter went on to tweet that this one year contract worth $2.5 million will make it easier for the Broncos to facilitate a trade. Whether the trade is inevitable or when the trade will take place is not apparent at this time.

KDVR Fox 31′s Josina Anderson reported earlier today that there were a couple of interesting teams in contention for Marshall’s services at this moment.

Denver Post beat writer Lindsay Jones, like Schefter, is immediately calling this a giant step in the move towards trading Marshall away from the Mile High City. As this move allows Denver to officially talk trade with interested teams, emphasizing that there is little chance that he will remain with the Broncos.

In a possibly related note the Broncos are scheduled to meet with a likely first round draft pick, wide receiver Dez Bryant this week according to a Scout.com report. Then as I pointed out in a tweet early this morning, the Broncos are also scheduled to meet with quarterback Tim Tebow.

The Seattle Seahawks are a known interested party, but the Miami Dolphins (who are reportedly interested in getting rid of wide receiver Ted Ginn, Jr. and possibly even running back Ronnie Brown) also may be interested.

Then there are those, “interesting,” teams…

UPDATE (11:07 PM EST 04/13/10):

ESPN’s John Clayton said on ESPN2, “Something could happen with Brandon Marshall in the next 24 hours.”

So thanks for that ESPN, no, seriously… Thanks.

Either way, the clock is ticking (or is it?).

  • dogheadbrew

    At least SOMETHING can be done now. It would be nice to know what our needs really are when the draft starts.

    PLENTY OF TEAMS ARE LOOKING FOR A #1 RECEIVER. IF WE DONT GET A FIRST ROUND PICK WE SHOULD HOLD ON TO B.M. I HOPE HE IS GONE BUT ANY GM IN THE LEAGUE WOULD TELL YOU HE IS THE BEAST. RAVENS, TITANS, PHINS, BILLS, BROWNS, RAIDERS, SKINS, BEARS, RAMS, AND SEAHAWKS COULD ALL USE B.M. WE NEED TO WIN ON DEFENSE AND RUNNING THE BALL NO MATTER WHO IS ON THE TEAM. IF MARSHALL IS ON THE TEAM AND WANTS TO BE A PAIN HE CAN WATCH FROM THE SIDELINE. DRAFT DEFENSE AND DRAFT MORE DEFENSE.

    Appreciate the comment, but can you refrain from screaming into our eyeballs next time?

    Add the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Arizona Cardinals to that list of yours my friend.

    I don't see the Broncos trading Marshall to an AFC team.
