Marshall lobbies for 'elite' QB in Miami
Brandon Marshall, fresh off a Pro Bowl MVP performance with six catches for 176 yards and four touchdowns, liked the quarterbacks who threw him the football in Honolulu. He liked them so much, he wants one like that for his very own with the Dolphins.
Marshall caught a TD each from Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers and two more from Bengals rookie Andy Dalton in the all-star game. And while none of those guys will be available this off-season the Dolphins to acquire, Marshall wants someone of that ilk in Miami, says the Miami Herald.
"Down in Miami, getting a feel for different quarterbacks, had three or four of them,” Marshall said. “Quarterbacks make it easier for me. You have these elite quarterbacks and it’s all on them. They put [the ball] in the right spot to make it easy for me to make the catch. It’s all the quarterbacks.”
Marshall didn't want to belittle his current guy, Matt Moore, but there have been reports that he has reached out to soon-to-be free agent Matt Flynn, and the Dolphins could get into the Peyton Manning sweepstakes if and when the Colts release him.
"Obviously, [Matt Moore] had a great year. You don't want to take anything away from Matt, but I think we really need to bring in somebody who can compete and make the team better," Marshall said.
In other words, Marshall wants an upgrade.
