Memo to Devany: Make sure we sign Brandon Marshall

I won't bother to rehash all the meladrama going on in Denver between the owner the coach and Brandon Marshall. The bottom line is that there relationship is going to end on a sour note. Brandon has been deactivated for his final game in a Bronco uniform. He will become an unrestricted free agent thereafter. Despite the fact that they are playing the Chiefs, I think the Broncos miss the playoffs. The Ravens will take the Raiders to the electrical shed.

We can expect Marshall to make a play for Chicago. I am almost certain he wants to be reuinited with Jay Cutler. They were turning into a famous combo together. Nobody was more pissed about Jaygate than Marshall. During a teleconference interview with the NFL Network, Marshall was careful to make sure he was filmed in front of the painting of himself and Jay Cutler embracing after their first Pro touchdown together. That speaks volumes.

I know Chicago would love to have Brandon. I know Jay would love to get him back. I know it is a long-shot for the Rams to intercept this process successfully and get Marshall to come to a team with no established NFL quarterback. However, money talks. We should make Brandon a nice lucrative offer. If Chicago gets him, we should make it expensive as hell for them.

Personally, I can't think of a better security blanket for a rookie like Tim Tebow, Colt McCoy or Jevan Snead. Would you like to ease the passage of a young rookie QB into the NFL? Get him a killer reciever like Brandon Marshall.
