We can end the speculation Bears fans. The dream of reuniting disgruntled wide receiver Brandon Marshall with Jay Cutler comes to an end as the Broncos are set to trade Marshall to the Miami Dolphins for a pair of second round draft picks.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Marshall will fly to Miami today to take a physical and sign “what will be one of the most lucrative wide receiver deals in NFL history, according to league sources.” Not bad for the low, low price of a 2010 and 2011 second round draft picks.
Miami holds the 11th selection in the second round, one pick behind the pick which the Bears sent to the Bucs in the Gaines Adams trade (rest his soul). Do you think Jerry Angelo wishes he had that one to do over again???
Bears fans will get to see Marshall this season as the Bears head down to Miami in the 2010 campaign. After the earlier trade of Santonio Holmes to the Jets, it seems like the Bears will get to see all of the embattled wide receivers this season. Stay tuned for the release of the schedule, which is rumored to be coming out later this week.
