Brandon Marshall Trade Reaction From Dolphins Fans: Talent Trumps Off-Field Issues

Throughout the day, you’ll read and hear the media using two words to describe Brandon Marshall: “troubled” and “mercurial.” To what extent those are accurate is up for debate, but what isn’t are the 26-year-old’s talents on the field. Marshall is undoubtedly one of the top five wide receivers in the NFL, and Dolphins fans are excited to see what he can do with Chad Henne next year.

From SB Nation’s The Phinsider:

Whether you like Marshall or not as a person, it’s hard to dislike the kid when he’s on the field. He just turned 26 and is now entering the prime of his career, coming off of three consecutive 100 reception seasons in Denver. And if he can put up a 100 catch, 1100 yard, 10 touchdown season with Kyle Orton throwing him passes, then imagine what he can do with a quarterback of Henne’s talent and potential.

The Phinsider also notes that Miami coordinator Mike Nolan, who came over from Denver, was consulted about Marshall before the deal went down and he called Marshall the best WR the Broncos defense faced all year. And they only saw him in practice.
