Roundup: WR Marshall a no-show at mandatory camp

Unhappy with his contract, Broncos WR Brandon Marshall didn’t report to the team’s mandatory minicamp Friday, the Denver Post reported.

Marshall is due to make $2.19 million in ’09.

The wide receiver is coming off hip surgery and wouldn’t have participated in the three days of practice, but he can be fined for not showing up to the mandatory minicamp. The Post reported that Marshall’s injury concerns were also a point of contention.

    Besides not being happy with his contract, Marshall has cited a lack of confidence in the Broncos medical team, saying the severity of his hip injury was misdiagnosed last season.

Marshall, who is entering his fourth year in the league, has topped the 1,000-yard receiving mark in each of the past two seasons and has 13 touchdowns during that span.
