Report: Broncos to decline option on LB Marshall

The Denver Broncos are expected to decline linebacker Brandon Marshall’s option and allow him to become a free agent, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Broncos would face a $4 million cap hit should they release Marshall with two years left on his deal — a four-year, $32 million contract he signed in June 2016.
Originally a fifth-round draft pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2012, Marshall has spent six of his seven seasons with the Broncos, including their Super Bowl championship team in 2015.
Marshall, 29, saw his production dip heavily in 2018 with just 42 tackles and no interceptions, sacks or fumble recoveries. He also played in just 11 games and started seven.
The Broncos haven’t made the playoffs since their Super Bowl win and have gone 11-21 over the last two seasons.
