How will the Broncos replace WR Marshall?

AFC West blogger Bill Williamson of ESPN has been following the Brandon Marshall move all day, and talked to Scouts Inc.’s Matt Williamson, who talks about how the wide out will be replaced in the lineup and on the club:

I caught up with Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. to discuss the matter.

Williamson said he believes receiver is Denver’s greatest need.

“That’s saying something since they need interior offensive lineman and an inside linebacker,” Williamson said. “This is a team with a lot of needs, but receiver is a big need.”

Marshall had 101 catches last year. Jabar Gaffney was second with 54 catches. Eddie Royal, who had 91 catches as a rookie, slipped badly. He had 37 catches last season. The Broncos’ other returning receiver, Brandon Stokley, had 19 catches.

“They need to hope Royal bounces back mentally and adjusts to Josh McDaniels’ system,” Williamson said. “He needs to bounce back bad. I like Gaffney as a No. 3, but I can live with him as a No. 3 if there is a solid No. 1. Right now, there isn’t.”
