So far, it's been a wild first day in the beginning of the NFL free agency period, with rumors of free agency signings and trades all around.

Julius Peppers is nearing a deal with the Chicago Bears, which brings us to the other rumors surfing around the league.

Moments ago, more rumors have begun involving the Seattle Seahawks and Denver wide receiver, Brandon Marshall.

According to Adam Schefter of via his Twitter account, the Seahawks front office is considering signing the top receiver.

If Seattle does give an offer, the Denver Broncos have two options. They can either match the offer the Seahawks have proposed or simply take the sixth overall pick in this year's draft, according to sources.

It seems that the Seahawks have become more interested with the Baltimore Ravens now out of the Marshall sweepstakes.

Last offseason, the Seattle signed former Bengal wide receiver, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, to a long-term deal. The thought of those two receivers pairing up together would be quite a combination, as the Seahawks enter a the transition period.

And if your the Broncos, the move would earn you a top ten pick, a spot in the draft where many impact players are available. Or the pick could possibly be dealt for more picks, which would be used to bring in more depth.
