Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall turned 26 earlier in the week and celebrated his birthday at a night club in Las Vegas. Apparently, Mark Sanchez gave him a call to see how his day was going and to wish him a happy birthday. I guess the Broncos aren't getting too much interest in the talented wide receiver, because they are no longer asking that a first-round pick be a part of a trade package for Marshall.

"According to the New York Post, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez (notes) gave Marshall a ring to see how he was enjoying his birthday. Some are seeing this as a reaching out by the Jets to try and get Marshall to come over to New York. The team has supposedly had internal discussions about trying to get Marshall from the Broncos, though they are pretty far behind the Seattle Seahawks, who have had Marshall come visit and have supposedly had actual trade discussions with the Broncs.

The Post also reports that the Broncos are no longer demanding a first-round pick be part of the trade package for Marshall."

Could this mean that the Jets are interested in trading for Marshall? Maybe, but I wouldn't get too excited over a phone call. There were rumors earlier in the month that the Jets were putting together a package of players to trade for Marshall, but Adam Schefter shot down the idea and said that the rumor had no legs. I know a lot of you are very interested in the Marshall situation, so if I hear anything more I will keep you posted.
