Marshall set to visit Seahawks

The Seahawks have emerged as one of the teams interested in restricted free agent Brandon Marshall. The Broncos wide receiver will visit the Seahawks on Saturday morning, a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora.

The Broncos extended a first-round tender to Marshall this week, which would pay $2.521 million and require any team that signed him to send their first-round pick to Denver.

If the Seahawks sign Marshall to an offer sheet and the Broncos elect not to match, Seattle would owe Denver the No. 6 overall pick in the draft. The Seahawks own two first-round picks, including No. 14, which incidentally they obtained from the Broncos last year.

Of course, the Broncos and Seahawks could work out a trade for lesser compensation to move Marshall, which is a very real possibility.

Keep in mind, the Seahawks lost unrestricted free agent Nate Burleson to the Lions on Friday, creating even more of a need at receiver.
