Broncos Declining ILB Brandon Marshall’s Option

Adam Schefter reports that the Broncos have notified ILB Brandon Marshall that they will likely decline his option for the 2019 season, making him a free agent on March 13.

Marshall’s future in Denver was clearly in question and he had come up as a potential trade candidate at the deadline last year, so this isn’t a big surprise.

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 was set to make a base salary of $6.5 million for the 2019 season.

In 2018, Marshall appeared in 11 games for the Broncos and recorded 42 tackles and no sacks or interceptions.
