When you mix the uncanny bad decision making of Terrell Owens with the Pacman Jones-esque penchant for off-field troubles…. you get Brandon Marshall.
I’m not sure why, but earlier this year when Brandon Marshall announced he had turned a new leaf and wanted to be more like Peyton Manning i actually believed the guy. This was after his arrest, suspension, and mysterious injury in which he “slipped on a McDonalds bag” and suffered a gash on his arm. I figured those incidents helped him come to the conclusion that he really needed to get things under control and become a model citizen.
It’s almost as if NFL owners are falling all over themselves to give a large contract to an injury prone knucklehead who can’t go a full season without getting arrested. I know this kid can ball, and he’s proved that over the last couple of seasons…. but logic tells me you don’t demand a new contract 2 months after an arrest and hip surgery.
I almost hope Denver takes a page out of Cincinnati’s book and refuses to trade him. He’ll try to hold out and then be on the field by week 2, and arrested again by New Years.
