The Buzz in Seattle

For what it's worth...I've been listening to sports radio here in the NW today, and Brandon Marshall has been a very popular topic of conversation. The consensus in the Emerald City is that the Seahawks will not have to give up a first round pick to land Marshall. A very short explanation after the jump for all those of you reading this on small screens...

The assumption in these parts is that with Baltimore now out of the picture (Boldin) and other potential suitors (Dolphins, Jets) setting their sights on 2nd tier wide receivers--Antonio Bryant, Antwan Randle El, etc...--that there won't end up being much competition for Marshall and that the Seahawks will be able to set the terms and pry Marshall loose for a 2nd and a 4th (or maybe a 3rd in 2011).

Of course, the corollary here is that the Broncos will under no circumstances resign BMarsh--that, whether because of the Darrent Williams experience or Marshall's incompatibility with McD, he's done in Denver.

I'm not sure I disagree that he's done here, but I do think that there will be enough teams sniffing around to keep the price up at least at the 1st round tender, and maybe higher. I am curious though whether Branch and a 2nd (and perhaps one other pick) might ultimately be enough to get the deal done. So here's the question:
