DenverPost.com this morning is anchored by a story headlined, dramatically, "Marshall may want out." Huh. I wonder what makes them think that?
Was it the time Marshall requested a trade from the team?
Or maybe the time he sent a goodbye message on his web site?
Or perhaps the time he admitted he would show up just to get paid?
Yeah, there's nothing "may" about it: He wants out, and he's going to be a surly, smug bastard until he gets what he wants. Part of me wishes they'd just bench his ass and hope he chokes or slaps his way to another suspension; the odds can't be worse than 2-to-1 on that. But more likely the Broncos will be forced to move him, and will receive someone or something of less-than-equal value in return.
Unless, that is, you count all the St. Peter Points they would rack up, in which case it'd be a steal.
