Brandon Marshall – “Hello South Beach”

Posted by T. Adeyemi on April 14, 2010

Grade A Update: ESPN Insider Adam Schefter reports that Brandon Marshall has reached a four-year $47.5 million extension with $24 million guaranteed.

With what seems to be the NFL’s version of what has happened the last two offseasons in the NBA, the 2010 NFL season is shaping up to be one of much excitement. Without question, all football faithful must be rejoicing at the thought of so much change occurring this offseason. Change is good, which is something I’m sure we all learned from the new HNIC in Washington D.C. But this much change is beyond good, it is simply exhilarating.

This morning ESPN’s NFL Insider Adam Schefter has reported that wide receiver Brandon Marshall is making a certain climate change. According to Schefter, Marshall has been traded to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for two 2nd round draft picks. The two draft picks are split between this year’s approaching draft on April 22nd and what is scheduled to be another second round pick in the 2011 draft.

The trade will be made official once Marshall passes the mandatory physical once he lands in Miami later today. For Marshall the deal seems to be nothing less than golden. From what reports are saying the contract he is scheduled to sign will make him one of the highest paid wide receivers of all time. Plus, it can be assumed he won’t mind trading in his mink for some Louis shades, a pair of linen shorts, and size 15 chancletas for the almost guaranteed weekly trips to South Beach. (Ahh those Miami spring breaks…reminsicing)

Back on the subject of football. This trade only adds to what seems to be an overwhelming pendulum that is leaning the AFC’s direction. All the major players who have shifted teams this offseason have seemingly stayed in the American Football Conference including LaDanian Tomilson, Thomas Jones, and most recently Santonio Holmes. Then you add in the NFC to AFC transitions of Karlos Dansby, Anquan Boldin, and Aaron Kampman.
