Attention prospects with red flags. The odds of getting a phone call from Davie may have taken a hit today, with the news that Brandon Marshall has been stabbed (and we’re glad to hear, is doing well) in a domestic disturbance.
Every team has to make judgement calls about guys with histories, in both the draft and free agency. Admittedly details are sparse in Marshall’s latest “hiccup”, but when we brought The Beast on board we certainly knew there were some pimples. Any possible infatuation with a guy like Ryan Mallett may now be trumped by character concerns, as may be the case with every other imperfect prospect on the board.
We’d also bet the wideouts on our big board will climb too. Every negative headline with Marshall’s name in it could and should have Miami at least preparing for a future that may not involve him.
Again, we don’t know all the details, but we do know The Beast may have a tendency to invite these messes. Maybe it’s not the best idea to bring more bad luck charms into the fold.
