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.

The team could also select Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are expected to

Jason Verrett enjoyed dipping his toes into the free-agency waters. The veteran cornerback ended up re-signing with the San Francisco 49ers on a one-year deal, but it wasn't due to a lack of interest from other teams. He opted to bet on himself again, as he did last offseason, and prove to skeptics that he can stay healthy while playing at a high level. It also feels good to stay with something familiar. "[Free agency] was a good experience," Verrett told reporters via Zoom on Monday. "It always feels good to be wanted, but my heart was always with San Fran. I love the comradely we've got with the team, the coaches, staff, training staff, the amazing fans, the whole nine yards. I was happy that we [were] able to get a deal done, and I'm just excited to see what
