Seattle hosted Marshall for a weekend visit three weeks ago, flying Marshall and his fiancee to the team’s facilities on the banks of Lake Washington by Seaplane. Marshall reportedly enjoyed his visit, talking to receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh during his trip and also meeting with offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates and quarterbacks coach Jedd Fisch, who both know Marshall from their time coaching in Denver.
“We’re friends, and when he was up here we talked,” Houshmandzadeh said, im just glad the Seahawks got this trade done and it will show all Seahawk fans just how serious Mangement is in winning this season!
