Because we're in the Dog Days of Doldrums, you should expect this shit to be analyzed from every conceivable angle until your eyes bleed.
Marshall had hip surgery last year, but Jeff Darlington reported that this procedure was to his other hip. Or, as Jeff put it, "It was his other hip!" Exclamation points make all the difference. But the Dolphins don't seem to be worried about it. Tony Sparano says it was something that Marshall had to get "cleaned up."
Of course people will wonder if the Trifecta did their due diligence before they traded for Marshall when it came to knowing his full health history. Was this something that escaped their attention??? Did they not know about this???? Whaaaa???? Keep in mind that this is the same organization that asks people if their moms are hookers during job interviews. So yea, I think it's safe to say that they did their due diligence. Also keep in mind that The Beast played with a bum hip last year and still fucked shit up all over the place.
But prepare for this to be THE major story of the off-season up until he gets on the practice field and starts running around in shorts with the rest of his teammates. PFT, Sun-Sentinel, ESPN, NFL Network, Armando Salguero, Dave Hyde, they're going to be talking about this until they shit a taco. So get ready.
In other news, did Brandon come out wearing number 19 just to fuck with us? I'm going to say yes. Yes he did.
