LB Brandon Marshall signs 4 year deal

Broncos LB Brandon Marshall gets a new contract extension!

This week, the Denver Broncos got a contract done for one of their key defensive players. No, it was’t Von Miller, don’t get your hopes up Broncos country. Luckily, it was for LB Brandon Marshall. Marshall signed a contract extension of 4 years/$32 million with $20 million guaranteed. I believe that is the perfect contract for both sides. Now, Broncos country has a chance to have a scary line backing corp through 2020, which could mean trouble for the rest of the NFL.

Brandon Marshall was a fifth round pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2012, never really getting a chance to show his full potential. He was a 2nd string linebacker at best in Jacksonville so they decided to release him. On September 13, 2013. Working hard to join the 53 man roster, he accomplished his goal in late 2013 after Von Miller was placed on IR. In 2014, he was able to start his first game for the Broncos in 2014 when Danny Trevathan suffered an injury. Ever since he got a taste of being a starter for the Denver Broncos, he’s never looked back. In 2014, Marshall 113 total tackles, including two sacks, 1 forced fumble and 1 interception. Losing to the Colts in 2014 made Marshall realize he had to step his game up, as so did everyone else. And that’s exactly what he did. He racked up 102 tackles, 1.5 sacks and 1 interception. Yes, his stats were better in 2014, but there is something the NFL doesn’t keep stats on, leadership. Marshall was a key component in Wade Phillips defense last year and will be going forward in the future.brandon-marshall-denver-broncos

Marshall has proved over the last two seasons that he can and will lead the team when his number is called upon. He led the team in tackles in 2014, and finished 2nd in 2015. Marshall knows his assignment every week, and doesn’t disappoint on completing his assignment. I believe his contract was well-deserved. He went from a 2nd string linebacker in Jacksonville to a Superbowl champion in just 4 years. The contract talks will now move on to Emmanuel Sanders, who is looking for a extension as well. And, of course, Von Miller. Hopefully, miller gets a contract done as soon as possible. If it doesn’t, it could begin to take a strain on the reigning Superbowl champions, which is the last thing they need. But for now, Bronco country can focus on the signing of one of their defensive stars who hasn’t even hit his prime yet, so he can only get better.
