Not much of Marshall's contract is tied up in a signing bonus (more teams should really structure contracts this way), so the Bears don't actually take a big hit if he's cut or traded. Though if not cut or traded by the 12th his 2015 salary becomes fully guaranteed, so there's a defined window for a potential Marshall move.

If traded, new team would take on following salaries:

2015: $7.7m (Fully guaranteed March 12th)

2016: $8.1m (Not guaranteed)

2017: $8.5m (Not guaranteed, but jumps to $9.2m if team reaches Super Bowl)

 

Only one year is guaranteed? I would definitely take on that deal.

Marshall might be a kittle over the hill folks. If were gunna spend that much money i want it to be someone else.

 

He's not.  He's only 30 and for a one year rental, not bad.  His game isn't really built on speed anyway.  

 

That being said, I'd like a speed guy still.  Torrey Smith would still be nice.  There is a ton of WR's out there now, so the market should be decent.  I still wouldn't be mad at getting someone like Marshall.

 

Regardless, we should still draft a WR in the 1st/2nd to compliment the upgrade we sign (and we better sign one).

Maybe we should trade Stewart to the Philly Ducks and use the $$ to sign Spiller.

 

I know this is in jest but Spiller is getting some serious hype of late. I'm all for adding him here as depth but he is not a bell cow. What was he, the #3 RB in Buffalo last year. LOL at Eagles fans thinking he is the answer to losing McCoy. If he really declined 5mil to stay in Buffalo he's nuts.

Espn is saying the Bears are trying to trade Brandon Marshall and the Steelers are hoping Troy Polamalu will retire because they feel he is past his prime and his cap number is too high.

You were scooped on Marshall but no one's mentioned the Polamolu story yet.

    • I really loved how he jumped up and made the one on one tackle on Kamara. Another play of his that impressed me was fighting off the block and drawing a holding call trying to make a tackle. Donte has really stepped up and bought into the system. 
    • To be fair, on the double coverage pass to DJ, he threw a dart. Agreed he could’ve thrown to a different receiver but it was actually a nice pass.
    • No way do I trade 2 1st rounders and a 2nd rounder for Tunsil or really any LT at this point. It's great that we are 2-0 and our defense is solid, pass protection is decent and Brady seems to be scheming to get the ball out pretty quickly and Darnold seems to have a good feel for what is going on in the pocket.  Our biggest issue is run blocking and a LT isn't going to fix that.  It's the guards and center that have to win those battles.  I hope we build from within, let's see Brown eventually and give Christensen a chance.  Also, we may want to do more of a zone blocking scheme when running pulling the guards and loading up one side of the line of scrimmage especially with all our TEs.  Still biggest problem is winning the line of scrimmage on 3rd and 4th and 1....Brady and Rhule have to know we can't win those with the interior line we have right now.
