Seahawks considering signing Brandon Marshall

Mar 5, 2010 at 11:58 AM--


According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Seattle Seahawks are considering signing wide receiver Brandon Marshall (Broncos) to an offer sheet. This is of interest to the 49ers since the Seahawks are within their division and San Francisco would have to face Marshall twice a year during the regular season.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Bears are close to signing defensive end Julius Peppers (Panthers) to what is expected to be a six-year deal worth $12-$14 million a season with the first three years guaranteed.

Schefter also reports that the Chicago Bears have signed free-agent running back Chester Taylor (Vikings) to a four-year deal worth $12.5 million. Taylor will receive $7 million guaranteed in the first year of the contract.

ESPN.com also reports that the New York Jets have released CB Donald Strickland.

Aiyuk finished the season with 60 receptions for 748 yards with five touchdowns. He added six carries for 77 rushing yards and another two scores on the ground. The superb first year was enough to land Aiyuk on Pro Football Focus' 2020 NFL All-Rookie Team. "The 49ers struck again," wrote Ben Linsey.

By the end of the 2020 season, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk looked a lot more comfortable in the San Francisco 49ers offense and appeared ready to leap to becoming a dangerous offensive weapon. From Week 7 through Week 15, Aiyuk averaged 94.7 receiving yards per game through six appearances.

That has 49ers general manager John Lynch excited. The young receiver would have benefited more from a normal offseason leading into his rookie year. That didn't happen, and it may have contributed to a slower start. "Brandon Aiyuk, he's everything we thought he would be, and a little bit more,"
