Here are some links to check out this morning.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post says that the first post-Donovan McNabb move for the Redskins could be going after Denver restricted free agent Brandon Marshall. With Washington head coach Mike Shanahan having coached Marshall in Denver it makes some sense. However, it’s also been reported that Shanahan was at his wit’s end with Marshall and would have gotten rid of him had he remained in Denver.

The other team that has been rumored to be interested in Marshall, the New York Jets, apparently are not interested according to this report.

John Niyo of the Detroit News reports that new Lions offensive lineman Rob Sims will likely start at left guard.

“I want to come in and solidify that left guard position,” Sims said. “I just needed a fresh start, and I didn’t see any place other than Detroit that was as welcoming to what I needed and what I wanted.”

Utah Safety Robert Johnson will reportedly visit Seattle. At 6-foot-2, 230 pounds Johnson projects as a mid-to-late round selection.

Don Banks of Sports Illustrated points to 10 unheralded NFL draft prospects who could make an impact on the league, appropriate naming it the Wes Walker Watch List.

Peter King of Sports Illustrated interviews wide receiver Donte Stallworth, who for the first time in print retells the events that led to the car accident and tragic death of Mario Reyes.

According to this report from Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal, league commissioner Roger Goodell wants the NFL’s revenue to reach $25 billion by 2027. In order to do that, the league’s revenue would need to generate $1 million in additional revenue each year until then.

  1. I’m not sure BM would want to play for WASH either. I think Shanahan is much more of a disciplinarian than Carroll.

  2. Dukeshire says:

    He’s already had issues with Shanahan, once before. But with the way Snyder spends money, I wouldn’t be surprised.

  3. Unless it’s a player for player swap (Haynesworth for Marshall maybe?) I don’t see how Washington could make the deal work. Denver isn’t going to take Washington’s third round pick for Marshall.

    Sounds more like a reporter’s wishful thinking than anything else.

  4. Since the Broncos run a 3-4, I don’t see Haynesworth going to Denver. Little Josh in Denver probably wouldn’t want to add another personality like Marshall either, as Haynesworth is supposedly a moron himelf.

    I remember Cutler saying last season that Shanahan had told him that he was going to get rid of Marshall too. This was as all the crazy Cutler talk was going on. I don’t know why Shanahan would trade a 1st rounder (even if it’s a future #1 pick in ’11) for a player he wanted to get rid of just over a year ago.

    I am starting to wonder if we are going to offer our #1 pick next year for Marshall? That would give us two #1 picks this year and BM. That would leave the sheves pretty bare for next years draft though (with the #3 already being gone in the Whitehurst trade) but that would be one heck of an infusion of talent for this year. They may be more comfortable doing it if they can move down a few spots in the 1st round this year (either pick or both) and pick up at least a 3rd rounder next year.

  5. edstang45 says:

    Lets hope PC and JS are smarter than all this hearsay, Marshall the thug would not be welcome at any price but if he suddenly grew up he might be worth something well below any 1st round trade. Even though PC takes pride in reaching troubled youths this guy may not be reachable ( IE. T Owens the dumbass)

  6. Why waste a draft pick on Marshall, with all the holes we have we are going to be terrible regardless.
