Broncos may be close to trading Marshall

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Brandon Marshall has signed his $2.521 million tender from the Denver Broncos, a move which could help facilitate a trade for the mercurial wide receiver.

The Broncos slapped a first-round tender on Marshall, but teams were unwilling to part with a first-round draft pick to lure the restricted free agent out of Denver.

Marshall had his third straight 100-catch season last year and made his second consecutive trip to the Pro Bowl despite several run-ins with coach Josh McDaniels. He was suspended for insubordination in training camp and again for the season finale after he was tardy for treatment on a hamstring injury the team felt he was exaggerating.

He caught 101 passes in 2009, including an NFL-record 21 in a loss at Indianapolis.
