Even though the reported trade between the Dolphins and Broncos exploded throughout the NFL community Wednesday morning, the deal still hinged on Brandon Marshall's physical; not that anyone expected an athletic 26-year old coming off three straight 100-reception seasons to suddenly have arthritis in the knees. But one mustn't be too careful.
The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero writes that colleague Jeff Darlington caught up with the wide receiver coming out of the doctor's office. Whether or not he was casing the place or working on his sneaky paparazzi skills is unknown, if not a little unnerving. When asked how the physical went, Marshall told Darlington "it went great."
Marshall is happy to be back in the same state he went to high school (Lake Howell High School) and college (Central Florida).
"I'm thrilled. This is home for me," Marshall said. "I'm right up the road from Orlando. I'm a Florida boy. We're finishing the process now. Hopefully it all goes as planned."
