Look the fact that Brandon Marshall got stabbed is most decidedly NOT funny. That could have been serious.
But the ensuing discussion *is* EXTREMELY funny. Turns out that Marshall's deal was really a one-year deal with an enormous option tacked onto it. The Dolphins (apparently) hoped they could re-negotiate it or (possibly) wanted to take a wait-and-see approach with the CBA.
So here we are with him either due a huge chunk of cash next season, or with the Fins needing to cut ties some amount of time (30 days?) after the new league year starts. And given this injury, that has already been bantered about. Assuming they cut him, there goes that 2nd round pick this year.
Does anyone at the Dolphins have any sense? Or maybe this was Parcells' parting gift to the team, to ensure he further twisted the knife (sorry Brandon, poor choice of metaphors)...
These are the kinds of things that happen to organizations that are in disarray. I can't imagine that what's transpired here over the last 5 years or so happening to a well-run team (the Patriots spring to mind)...everything is just so haphazard. Its so laughable.
