PLANTATION, Fla. (AP) - Brandon Marshall says he welcomes a clean slate with the Miami Dolphins and looks forward to making a positive impact with his new team on and off the field.
One day after being traded by the Denver Broncos to the Dolphins for two second-round draft picks, Marshall held a 20-minute news conference Thursday. He said he's not a prima donna, but he wants to be the best receiver in the NFL while helping the Dolphins win.
While Marshall made the Pro Bowl the past two seasons, he has a history of domestic violence and clashed with Denver coach Josh McDaniels, who was willing to part with him. Marshall said his mistakes are in the past, and Miami fans need not worry about him getting into trouble.
