NFL: Denver’s Brandon Marshall to visit Seattle

SEATTLE — Despite a potentially huge price to acquire his services, the Seattle Seahawks are going to take their shot at impressing Denver wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
A Seahawks spokesman says the star Broncos receiver, and restricted free agent, will visit with the Seahawks on Saturday. ESPN.com first reported Marshall’s visit.
The price to get Marshall to leave Denver could be costly. Denver slapped a first-round tender on Marshall earlier this week, meaning Seattle would have to surrender the No. 6 pick in April’s draft as compensation to the Broncos if the two teams cannot work out a trade.
The reward for Seattle could be the big play receiver the Seahawks need even if he comes with past problems. Marshall has caught more than 100 passes in three straight seasons.
