We’re starting to get some clarity on Brandon Marshall‘s market. After learning today that the Raiders have interest in the veteran linebacker, Troy Renck of Denver7 reports (via Twitter) that the Ravens have also expressed interest in Marshall.
The 29-year-old was set to earn $9MM with the Broncos in 2019, but the team decided to not pick up his option. Since that time, only the Raiders have been definitively connected to the defender. However, reports indicated that five anonymous teams were interested in the veteran.
Marshall battled through injuries during the 2018 season, limiting him to 11 games. He ultimately finished the campaign with only 42 tackles, his lowest total since he became a starter during the 2014 season. Still, the former fifth-rounder proved that he can be productive when he’s at full strength, as the linebacker finished with at least 100 tackles in each of his three healthiest seasons.
The Ravens have lost a trio of linebackers this offseason in C.J. Mosley, Terrell Suggs, and Za’Darius Smith. The team has naturally been in the market for reinforcement at the position, and they’ve already added Ejuan Price and Matthew Thomas to their corps.
