According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll acknowledged that Seahawks general manager John Schneider has had talks with the Denver Broncos about restricted free agent wide receiver Brandon Marshall. The Seahawks have also talked to Kennard McGuire, Marshall’s agent.
“There has been some talk,” Carroll said during the NFC coaches breakfast this morning at the league meetings in Orlando. “John has handled that so far. But it’s very preliminary.”
Marshall visited the Seahawks over two weeks ago, and the Seahawks have yet to sign the two-time Pro Bowler to an offer sheet, an indication that they’re unwilling to part with the sixth overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. Marshall excelled in a Broncos’ offense that new Seahawks offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates will run a version of in Seattle, and two other coaches from the Broncos’ staff–Jedd Fisch and Pat McPherson–are also on Bates’ offensive staff.
“Those guys all know him so they gave us unique insight on how he can fit into our offense and what he can do to help us,” Carroll said.
