Brandon Marshall, Redskins No Longer Linked

Denver Broncos v Indianapolis Colts

? Because he has been traded to the Miami Dolphins.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Marshall will be shipped to the Dolphins for a second-round pick in the 2010 draft and “what is thought to be” a second-round selection in 2011.  The deal hinges on Marshall passing a physical.  (Though a formality, Marshall has had an on-and-off hip issue, the handling of which caused his relationship with the Broncos to sour.)

The Broncos get a second round pick this year and a second round pick next year in return. Now Chad Henne has a big time target to throw you.  One would think that this is an upgrade over say…Ted Ginn. Maybe just a little bit.

P.S. I hope you bought into my sarcastic overtones.

Marshall also expected to sign “one of the most lucrative wide receiver deals” in league history.  The top of the market has been $10 million for more than two years, when Larry Fitzgerald parlayed the eight-figure back end of his rookie deal into a new contract.  Others, like Randy Moss and Roy Williams, earn $9 million annually.
