Broncos, Brandon Marshall talking contract extension

Perhaps a few days away were exactly what both sides needed.  Brandon Marshall returned on Sunday from a team-induced exile.  His attitude since returning has been "great" according to Head Coach Josh McDaniels. 

Great indeed.

Adam Schefter is reporting that the Broncos and Marshall are in the process of working on a contract extension.

The potential new deal would put Marshall's salary more in line with some of the game's other highly-paid receivers.

Due to the fact he has been unable to get a long-term deal, Marshall has been clinging to the hopes that Denver would deal him. But now, in a new approach, the deal Denver might make is not for Marshall, but rather with Marshall.

The fact that they are even talking is an encouraging sign, sources said, and there is some optimism that a deal could be struck that could keep Marshall in Denver long term.

This is obviously a good sign for the team, and for Marshall.  It also is a sign that the Broncos are willing to meet a player in the middle, IF that player is willing as well. 

Let's hope the fruit of these talks gets Marshall a contract that will get him the money he's earned while protecting the Broncos from the inherent risks associated with Marshall.
