In varying degrees of legitimacy, potential landing spots for WR Brandon Marshall continue to emerge.
Acquiring Marshall, though, will come with a price — specifically, the first-round pick the Broncos would receive if they elect not to match an offer sheet for the restricted free agent. While a trade scenario could still exist, is it realistic to believe a team will ante up the asking price? According to NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi, it’s “very realistic.”
Lombardi suggests the Seahawks, who hosted Marshall for a visit last Saturday, are very interested. He reiterated his earlier report, though, that the Broncos will accept nothing less than a first-round pick for Marshall.
“I expect Seattle to be very active with [Marshall],” Lombardi told NFL Total Access. “Brandon Marshall would be a coup for that team.”
Looking for a sleeper in the Marshall sweepstakes? Lombardi also noted he expects a team in the bottom half of the first round to also explore the possibility.
