Marshall's hip is long-term concern
May, 19, 2010
The Dolphins are treating Brandon Marshall's hip surgery, which will keep him out until training camp, as the price of doing business for a 100-catch receiver. The concern for Miami shouldn't be this year. Marshall bounced back from last year's operation and stayed at the 100-catch level. The concern, though, should be long term. Marshall plays a physical brand of football at wide receiver, which will take a toll on his body. That style and more operations might mean he could have difficulty staying at this high level of play for the next five seasons. Revis' worth: The Jets and cornerback Darrelle Revis haven't starting talking numbers yet, but it's pretty clear he won't ask for $20 million a year. It will be hard for him not to ask for $15 million a year based on Nnamdi Asomugha's contract with the Raiders. It will be a tricky negotiation for the Jets, but the organization is pretty good at coming up with contracts to keep its top players.
