Pete Carroll not guaranteeing Brandon Marshall will make final roster

Brandon Marshall

Despite being in near-dire need of receiving help, the Seattle Seahawks will not be afraid to pull the plug on Brandon Marshall if they don’t like what they see from him in training camp.

Gregg Bell of The News Tribune reported this week that Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is not guaranteeing that Marshall will even make the final roster.

“We’ve got to get him on our field with our guys and see how it goes,” Carroll was quoted as saying about the 34-year-old receiver.

Marshall, a 12-year veteran and six-time Pro Bowler, signed a one-year, $1.1 million contract with Seattle this offseason after attracting sparse interest. The deal also comes with incentives for catches, receiving yards, and touchdowns.

The Seahawks needs pass-catchers after losing Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham in free agency. But Marshall has looked like a total shell of himself in recent years, logging just 18 receptions for 154 yards and zero touchdowns last season. Given his age and the way that his last stop ended, there’s certainly a non-zero possibility that Marshall fails to impress in camp and gets booted.
