The Miami Dolphins and the rest of the NFL world were stunned over the weekend when news surfaced early on Saturday morning that WR Brandon Marshall had been stabbed and his wife had been arrested in connection with the incident.
Marshall is the victim in this instance but, based on his past, some Dolphins players weren't surprised trouble found Marshall, writes Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
Despite the weekend, incident, the Dolphins have no plans to release Marshall if/when the lockout is lifted.
The Dolphins, at this time, have no intention to break ties with Marshall, a source said Saturday. Miami reportedly has the option to break away from Marshall by not paying a $3 million option bonus that guarantees the player's salary through 2012.
They have an out if they want it but, according to report, they won't take it. Even if the Dolphins wanted to release Marshall, it would be a difficult pill to swallow. They have invested in him a pair of second round picks, never mind the $50 million contract.
It's a tough situation for all parties involved. The Dolphins hope it's the last tough situation they have with Marshall.
