With training camp only a week away, several Denver Broncos are trying to get a jump start on their preparation by congregating at Russell Wilson’s facility in San Diego. Among those Denver Broncos is a former franchise legend — Brandon Marshall.
Marshall played for the Broncos from 2006 to April of 2010, when he was traded to the Miami Dolphins for two second-round picks. During his time with the Broncos, Marshall made two Pro Bowls, hauled in 327 receptions for 4,019 yards and 25 touchdowns, and set a standing NFL record for receptions in a single game.
After being traded by the Broncos, Marshall played eight more seasons for five other franchises — including a brief stint with Russell Wilson’s Seahawks, earning four more Pro Bowl nods and two All-Pro listings, before finally retiring in 2019.
The Broncos will now be hoping that their old franchise legend, Brandon Marshall, can pass along some guidance and wisdom to their unproven group of pass catchers. While it’s impossible to deny the talent in that photo, a lot of those players pictured still have a lot to prove.
Heck of a catch by Jerry Jeudy 👀

Tyrie Cleveland, Brandon Johnson, Lloyd Cushenberry III, Travis Fulgham, Brett Rypien and Eric Saubert will all be battling for a roster spot a week from now, and none of them are guaranteed one. Past that, Jerry Jeudy, K.J. Hamler, Kendall Hinton and Albert Okwuegbunam are entering seasons that will have major impacts on their future NFL careers.
It’s good to see them all going out of their way to get some extra work in with their new quarterback.
