Bears put Brandon Marshall on trading block

The Chicago Bears have placed wide receiver Brandon Marshall on the trading block, according to the Chicago Tribune. Marshall's $7.5 million base salary becomes fully guaranteed March 12. Marshall, 30, has a reputation as a locker room lawyer and has a history of domestic violence issues, but has been better behaved since joining the Bears via a trade in March 2012. The Miami Dolphins traded Marshall for two third-round draft picks. Marshall caught 61 passes for 721 yards and eight touchdowns last season. “We met with him like a lot of individual players and that's going to be a slow process and we look forward to evaluating that,” general manager Ryan Pace said at the NFL scouting combine. "Sometimes these reputations outside the building, you get inside and it's not what you expected and I think we need to make our own decisions and our own judgements and that's the process we're going through right now.” Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
