Three days after Denver Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall was found not guilty on a misdemeanor battery charge in Atlanta, his agent was at the team’s headquarters reportedly asking again for a new contract.

The Broncos turned down Marshall’s request, the Denver Post reported, and turned down another request to be traded. Marshall made similar requests in June, when he held out of the team’s mandatory minicamp. Kennard McGuire, Marshall’s agent, didn’t return messages.

Marshall said his main reason for showing up to training camp was to avoid getting fined. Marshall would still be fined if he left camp. He did practice in the morning and worked out in the team’s weight room in the afternoon while the rest of the team practiced. Many other veterans, especially those coming off injury, are given one practice a day off.


DE trade adds to Patriots connections
The defensive line still is a work in progress, and the team continued to add to it by trading a draft pick to New England for defensive end Le Kevin Smith.

FoxSports.com reported the Broncos sent a fifth-round pick in 2010 for Smith and a 2010 seventh-round pick.

“It is a very physical position,” said Broncos coach Josh McDaniels, who wouldn’t comment on the trade Monday morning because it wasn’t yet official. “It is not for the weak of heart.”

The Broncos released Rulon Davis to make room for Smith on the roster.


Practice canceled
The Broncos had to cut practice short on Monday evening, because of rain and lightning in the area. This was the first practice that was interrupted by weather.
