Broncos CB Bradley Roby & ILB Brandon Marshall Also Potential Trade Candidates


Ian Rapoport reports that Broncos CB Bradley Roby is another player to watch as the trade deadline nears. In fact, Rapoport says that NFL teams were hoping that Denver lost on Thursday and to make a move to acquire Roby.

Mike Klis of 9 News adds that the Broncos also have LB Brandon Marshall available for trade along with any player who has a younger replacement behind them such as WR Demaryius Thomas.

Other names that have come up as possible trade candidates for the Broncos include WR Emmanuel Sanders and CB Chris Harris.

Roby, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $6.95 million rookie contract when the Broncos picked up his fifth-year option.

Roby stands to make a base salary of $8.526 million for the 2018 season and will be an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career next year.

In 2018, Roby has appeared in seven games for the Broncos and recorded 15 tackles, one interception and seven pass defenses.

Marshall, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2012. However, he lasted just over a year in Jacksonville before he was waived at the start of the 2013 season and later signed to the Broncos practice squad.

Denver brought Marshall back for the 2016 season on a one-year, restricted tender worth $2.553 million before eventually agreeing to a five-year, $34.553 million contract that includes $20 million guaranteed.

Marshall stands to make base salaries of $5 million and $6.5 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2018, Marshall has appeared in seven games for the Broncos and recorded 32 tackles, no sacks or interceptions and one pass defense.

We’ll have more regarding Marshall as the news is available.
