Brandon Marshall: Local Idiot
There’s a lot to be said for just how stupid wide receivers in the NFL can be. If Michael Irvin smoking crack was a nine and Donte Stallworth killing a man while drunk behind the wheel of a car was a ten, than this next chapter of, “As Brandon Marshall Ruins His Career” has to at least be a seven, right?
Marshall, who has been one of the best receivers in the NFL the last two seasons, faces a suspension for the pre-season, at least, and perhaps into the regular season as well. He has ruined his relationship with the Broncos for the short term and made himself toxic for teams who would need a No. 1 receiver.
Marshall is playing in a different time than the players he grew up watching. Teams are tiring of the headaches that come with prima donna receivers and coming up with plenty of reasons not to sign them. If Al Davis and Jerry Jones are tired of dealing with it, you know the game is up.
This is awkward, Brandon, but… nobody cares anymore.
