Super Bowl 50 Champion Brandon Marshall Won’t Play in TSL

Brandon Marshall, the 31-year-old inside linebacker has had an illustrious career, starting 5 years in Denver, most notably on the Broncos 2015 Championship run. With 63 starts and over 400 tackles to his name, it was a big deal when he was slotted to play for the Generals in the TSL.

He would have easily been the most experienced defender in the league after turning heads at the HUB Football Camp, but it appears his performance there attracted some NFL attention and the veteran linebacker will be taking his talents elsewhere.

It is unclear as of yet where he will end up, but according to NFL Draft Bible’s scouting report, Marshall is in incredible shape and still flexing the sideline-to-sideline flow that made him an impact starter in Denver. He’s been out of football since 2019 after his offseason with the Raiders ended with a knee injury, but it appears from these reports that he’s taken the time to focus on training and make another shot at the NFL.

While TSL does not appear to be in his cards, he has not ruled out a possible CFL appearance but the NFL remains his ultimate goal. At just 31, it’s good to hear he still has plenty of football left in the tank and though he will not be playing in TSL, his potential signing will go a long way to proving that HUB scouting and developmental football work.

The Generals will have to manage without Marshall’s services, and they are 1-1 to start the season after yesterday’s loss to the Sea Lions.
