“I think Brandon is going through a maturing process,” Bowlen said, according to The Denver Post. “Personally, I saw change in his personality and approach to things [this season]. He didn’t have the same sort of attitude and anxiety that he’s had. I personally would like to see him stay. And there’s still a good possibility that could happen.”
Marshall, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, would become a restricted free agent if the owners and players’ union don’t strike a labor agreement by March 5, giving the Broncos an upper hand should they want to sign him.
The Broncos owner goes on to say that he would not override McDaniels if he vehemently wanted to get rid of Marshal. I am not sure I believe that. If the owner is making it known publicly that he would prefer Marshal to stay then there is a good chance he will.
McDaniels is a system guy, however, and if he thinks his system can work just fine without Marshal, I could see him trying to convince Bowlen to dump him. It all depends on how much of a distraction Marshal is for the team.
Personally, I want whatever works out the worst for the Broncos. I think Marshal is more of a threat to the Chiefs on the field than he is valuable acting like an ass in the Broncos locker room. . I hope they get rid of him.
