Looks like Marshall should be suspended for the first month of the season at least. He has the talent to be great...looks like he is heading down the Chris Henry path instead of the Larry Fitzgerald path, though.


Marshall arrested for disorderly conduct

ESPN.com news services

Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who's had a string of off-the-field brushes with the law, has had another.

Marshall was arrested Sunday in Atlanta and booked into the Atlanta City Jail on a disorderly conduct charge. Details of the events leading to Marshall's arrest are not known at this time. A supervisor at the jail would only tell ESPN's John Barr that Marshall was involved in a fight.

Marshall posted a $300 bond and has been released. This is the fourth arrest for Marshall since March 2006. He was suspended last season by the NFL for three games (later reduced to one) for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

If Marshall gets anything less than 4 games than that's complete BS.

He should get 8 games for this...

Case against Marshall dismissed

ESPN.com news services

A disorderly conduct charge against Brandon Marshall, who was arrested in Atlanta on Sunday, has been dropped and his case has been dismissed, a source close to the Denver Broncos wide receiver tells ESPN's Michael Smith.

Marshall's latest run-in with the law stemmed from a fight. His latest run-in with the law could result in a lengthy suspension from the NFL.

Marshall arrived at the Atlanta City Jail at 5:50 a.m. on a disorderly conduct charge and was released five hours later after posting $300 bond, said Lt. Joseph, the supervisor at the jail. Joseph declined to give his first name.

Marshall's arrest was his fourth since March 2006.

He was suspended for three games last season for repeatedly running afoul of the law -- Marshall's suspension stemmed from seven police-related incidents with his former girlfriend, Rasheedah Wately. But he had his punishment reduced to a single game when he pledged to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that he would stay out of trouble.

Marshall, 24, potentially faces a longer suspension to start the 2009 season, perhaps as much as eight games, which is the punishment other players have received for repeatedly getting into trouble off the field.

The league doesn't require convictions for the commissioner to suspend a player.

Team spokesman Patrick Smyth said on Sunday the Broncos were aware of Marshall's arrest but had no comment, and Marshall's Denver-based lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, also declined comment in a text to The AP.

His agent, Kennard McGwire, didn't immediately return an e-mail following his client's arrest. Calls and e-mails also were sent after hours to Broncos general manager Brian Xanders and league spokesman Greg Aiello.

It was a March 6, 2008, arrest on a domestic violence warrant filed by his former girlfriend in Atlanta that led Goodell to summon Marshall to his New York offices last summer to explain his series of misdeeds. At that time, Marshall also faced a drunken driving trial that didn't fall under the league's personal conduct policy that would allow for suspension.

After sitting out the opener last season, Marshall returned from his suspension insisting he had turned round his life. He began making weekly visits to the Darrent Williams Teen Center on his days off to help inner city youths, something he said kept him grounded and fed his desire to stay off the police blotter.

Marshall said at the Pro Bowl last month he was ready to settle down and he proposed to his fiance, Michi Nogami, while in Hawaii for the all-star game. Broncos fans hoped this was another sign of Marshall maturing.

Marshall caught 104 passes for 1,265 yards and six TDs last season. But he dropped 18 on-target passes, something he blamed on the nerve damage in his right arm, which he put through a television set while horsing around with his brother in the offseason.

In three NFL seasons, Marshall has caught 226 passes for 2,899 yards and 15 touchdowns, although he's fumbled eight times, losing four.

Marshall is expected to seek a monster contract this year befitting his immense talents and reflecting his back-to-back 100-catch seasons.

His arrest came the same weekend another one of the team's leaders found himself in the news. Quarterback Jay Cutler, a fellow 2006 draft pick who also made his first trip to the Pro Bowl last month, is angry he was the subject of trade talks for Matt Cassel and has suggested his relationship with new coach Josh McDaniels has been strained.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Apparently the charges have been dismissed (magically). Wow what a shocker.


However! Greg Aiello (NFL Spokesman) says that the league is still going to look into the matter. Sounds like Marshall could still get smacked since he is a repeat offender.

WTF!!???

This Browns fan from Cleveland called in and said he heard this on the radio in Cleveland...and the hosts on NFL Radio weren't sure how true this was but here is a potential rumor:

Browns trade Brady Quinn and Shaun Rogers for Jay Cutler.

Good, get Rogers out of our path...

Not good. Cutler has the potential to be a top 5 QB in this league. Hope it's a false rumor.

Sounds to me like a Browns fan wet dream and not real. I don't know why Denver would want a QB more unproven than Cutler and a 30 year old DT who is a known malcontent.

Of course, the Cleveland to Denver d-line pipeline has an even more extensive history than the Detroit to Pittsburgh free agent pipeline. Remember when the Broncos signed the entire Cleveland d-line in one off-season?

Yeah that was classic. They were so good together Shanny thought they could ball for him too :roll:

Well the Broncos signed Andra Davis (LB) from Browns this offseason...but then again they've signed free agents from 1/3 of the league, so chance were good that they'd get at least one $hit stain.

And while Cutler is good, I don't worry about the rest of the offense. We've faced the best qb's in the league and our D can manage to stifle them. Yet at times, huge D-lines ruin our game plan. I trust our D more than our O-Line...so Stains getting Cutler isn't terrible to me.

If our division at Roethlisberger, Palmer, Flacco, and Cutler in it, it would be the best young QB division in the league bar none.

Cutler is a scrub. I said it... he has a gun and has the potential but like Palmer.. he doesn't have the will to win. He is a media's wet dream as far as mechanics go... but until he puts a team on his back and wins a few games "when the team desperately needs it" I'm not convinced...

ESPN said Cutler would be great just like Romo... neither has met the expectations and these guys are only in the news because of ESPN expectations..

they are like Duke in NCAA basketball(the scrub Duke not the 1990's Duke)....
every time they win a few game ESPN puts them back in the hunt..
then when they lose a few... they come out with a story about potential or best of the rest to keep them in the light.

Scrub? In 2 years as a starter plus 5 games as a rookie, he has over 9000 yards passing with 54 TD's and 37 INT's. He's not some one year flash in the pan like Derek Anderson, and he's light years ahead of Brady Quinn at this point. If the Broncos were seriously considering trading him, I would have preferred that he went to an NFC like the Bucs or Lions as was rumored when the Cassel trade was going down. I'd prefer not to have another potentially elite QB in our division.

Scrub.. I said it... he is not who they say he is. I don't care about his QB stats..
I know he has a gun for an arm... but he yaps more then he wins.

Every year since he was drafted he is said to be this elite QB...

Flacco has done more in one year then Cutler has done his whole career.
Cutler is going to be another Palmer... numbers but no wins to show for it.

I've never seen anywhere that he was elite. They made a big deal about him in the draft...but last year was his first full year as a starter for cryin out loud. Scrub? His defense was worse than any Bung-hole defense that Palmer ever had to try to carry. You can't judge this guy on one year. Unfortunately he is changing coaches and probably systems, so it could hamper his progression a bit.

Actually, he's been the starter for 2 full seasons. The first he threw for nearly 3500 yards (20 TD 14 INT) and the second he threw for over 4500 yards (25 TD 18 INT). I liked his progress enough that I suggested hiring his QB coach Jeremy Bates (a young coaching prodigy who had a history working with Tomlin in Tampa Bay) to replace Arians as our O.C. After Shanahan was fired, though, Bates went to work for Pete Carroll as the O.C. at USC.

Cutler is another stat accumulator and it seems that's all he's destined to be. There's something about him that just says he won't or can't win a big game, kind of reminds of Romo. They both rack up yards, but, not big wins in December.

I'll stick with our hold the ball too long, throw into coverage, 2 time SB champion. :tt2

Oh, absolutely. I am by no means saying that he is in Roethlisberger's league. Far from it. Ben is unquestionably in the top 3, and Cutler has likely worked his way into the top 10 (with the Palmers and the Romos but still a long way from the truly elite QB's). I am just saying that he is a much better QB than Brady Quinn or Derek Anderson, and I would prefer it if he were not in the AFC North, because a guy with an arm like his can still be dangerous.

Cutler may be an athlete, but he has proven himself to be a smoking gun, a clubhouse cancer. He basically ripped his defense on the Dan Patrick Show just before the Super Bowl. He's a showboat.
