The Denver Broncos have reached a four-year, $32 million extension with linebacker Brandon Marshall.
Marshall’s was given a second-round tender this offseason, which would have expired at the end of the year. His salary for this season will remain at the $2.5 million mark he was scheduled to receive. His extension includes $20 million guaranteed and a $10 million signing bonus.
Marshall was drafted in the fifth round of 2012 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars out of the University of Nevada. He was released by the Jaguars on August 30, 2013 after limited action in five games and no tackles. The Broncos signed him to their practice squad on September 2, 2013. Marshall was promoted to the active roster on December 24, 2013.
During the second week of the 2014 season, Marshall was given his first start. He led the Broncos in tackles in 2014 with 119, finishing second on the team this last season with 101.
Following the news of the extension, here’s how his teammates and the rest of Broncos Country responded:

Brandon Marshall's deal puts him in the top 10 in average ILB salary/year. He got 8M more gtd than Danny Trevathan did on the open market.
