The Denver Broncos have finally had enough of receiver Brandon Marshall’s antics and have decided to suspend the wideout for insubordination.
The team announced the suspension Friday but didn't say how long it would last.
Marshall has been open about his unhappiness with the Broncos and asked for a new contract or a trade. He acknowledged he hasn't learned new coach Josh McDaniels' playbook and was held out of last Sunday's preseason game at Seattle.
During Wednesday's warmups, Marshall walked while the rest of the team was running. He punted a ball away instead of handing it to a ball boy and swatted a pass thrown to him. His actions were caught on video and aired by KMGH-TV.
Marshall told ESPN on Thursday that frustration got the best of him.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction currently list the Broncos’ odds to win Super Bowl XLIV at 55/1 and their AFC Championship odds at 30/1. With or without Marshall, Denver could struggle to keep pace in a highly competitive AFC Conference.
