There could be peace between the Broncos and disgruntled Pro Bowl WR Brandon Marshall, who quietly have started contract discussions, NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports.
The Broncos had no comment on talks between the team and Marshall.
Marshall, who’s scheduled to be paid just $2.2 million this season after posting back-to-back 100-catch seasons, had asked for a new deal from the Broncos, then demanded a trade after meeting with team owner Pat Bowlen in June. But the Broncos refused to trade Marshall — although the Jets did call to express interest — and suspended him for the rest of the preseason after the receiver’s outlandish actions at an August practice.
Marshall was reinstated Sunday and returned to practice Tuesday. Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said Marshall has shown a good attitude since returning to the team but didn’t commit to any sort of playing time in this weekend’s season opener against the Bengals.
