    Oh dear god...

    Per Adam Schefter

    Filed to ESPN: Seattle is strongly considering signing Broncos restricted free-agent WR Brandon Marshall. A huge move.

    Please no.

    Re: Oh dear god...

    Reasons why it makes sense:

    they have two first round picks

    Reasons why it doesn't make sense:

    T.J.
    team is old and aging across the board.
    new coach trying to bring in new players for system.
    obvious marshall issues.


    bottom line:

    who knows...

    Regardless, he still had over 100 catches last year and is a top 3 receiver.

    If they get him, we are going to have to face the best receivers in the league twice a year now. We need secondary help ASAP.

    DUNTA!

    Per Schefter again:

    Brandon Marshall expected to be in Seattle on Saturday to visit the Seahawks and see if they can hammer out an offer sheet.

    Re: Oh dear god...

    If the Seahawks are able to sign Marshall and Denver does not match, they would have to give up a first round pick. I'm not certain if the rules dictate which one they'd have to give up (their pick, #6, or the one obtained through a trade, #14).

    Even if its the #14 pick, I'd question whether Seattle would be getting the better end of the deal. Seattle needs an OT, RB, QB (at least for long term), and pass rusher. Instead, they'd get a talented, but pricey, WR with conduct issues.

    According to Demoff in his chat the other day, it would be the #6 pick:

    "To give an offer sheet to an RFA, you must offer the exact compensation specified by their tender level. Furthermore, you have to be able to give your original pick in that round, you can't offer up a pick you acquired somehow. So we can't offer Philadelphia's 5th round pick in an offer sheet for a player tendered as a 5th, we have to offer the Rams' 5th round pick."

    While it would be scary to see a player of that potential go to a division rival, it could be the lesser of two evils in this instance for all the reasons offered in the above posts & could be a Trojan horse for the Carroll regime.

    I'm a lot more nervous about The Hags getting a new OT AND a QB from the first round which, as you point out, is quite possible.

    As long as we improve our team and as long as were ready for this next upcoming season, who cares what they do.

    This is exactly what I was thinking. Marshall is an awesome WR and I wish we had him coming in for an interview.

    Yeah, with Fitz & Boldin and the possibility of Housh & Marshall; scary times for the Rams secondary. I also read that the Seachickens were talking with Benjamin Watson, so there's that to consider.
