Ward (concussion), OT Ty Sambrailo, OG Connor McGovern, and WR Jordan Norwood inactive for Week 17. With Wolfe and Ward out, the Raiders should be able to run at will. Sun, Jan 1, 2017 03:14:00 PM

Broncos ILB Brandon Marshall said he is willing to play out 2016 on a one-year tender.

Marshall still has not signed his second-round tender as he pursues a long-term deal, but he said he is open to playing out the one-year deal before hitting free agency next spring. "I have no problem playing the deal out, I have no problem with doing that," Marshall said. "But I do want to be here long-term, so that's what I'm working towards." Von Miller is a more pressing concern, but the Broncos need to get Marshall locked up as well.

The Denver Post reports Broncos restricted free agent ILB Brandon Marshall is expected to draw interest from the Dolphins and Seahawks.

Marshall was extended a second-round tender, meaning any team signing him to an offer sheet would have to send a second-round pick Denver's way in order to land him. And that's if the offer sheet isn't matched by the Broncos. Marshall, 26, finished 2015 with 102 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles.

Broncos extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent ILB Brandon Marshall.

Marshall will earn $2.553 million on the tender.

A fifth-round pick of the Jaguars in 2012, Marshall worked his way from the Broncos' practice squad in 2013 to a 16-game starter last season. With Danny Trevathan likely leaving in free agency, Denver had to retain Marshall.
