So far, so good. After demanding his way out of Denver and landing himself a nice, fat contract, Marshall has been a model citizenbut he is still letting his emotions get the best of him on the field.

It has been a frustrating week for Marshall, who had zero catches and two dropped balls in the Dolphins' preseason opener.

He said he wasn’t “mentally prepared” for a scrimmage last Saturday and was “disappointed” in his play. Two days ago, he said he’s “not going to make any excuses” for dropping two passes in the Dolphins’ exhibition opener.

However, during Monday's practice, the old Marshall that we know showed himself in Miami for the first time.

According to several sources, Marshall dropped a pass in the end zone late in practice. He then proceeded to do something that Broncos fans are very familiar with.

Brandon Marshall scooped up the dropped ball and punted it over the fence.

Marshall then had two more passes swatted away by Vontae Davis.

Brandon Marshall then stood alone at the sideline for the duration of the practice.
