Regarding Brandon Marshall's non-existent future with the Eagles

I am sick and tired of hearing that the The Eagles should pursue Brandon Marshall.

ESPN wrote a very good article about why he won't be leaving Denver anytime soon and I happen to agree with him. The Bronco's have no reason to trade him: he is under contract, has less than stellar trade value because of his off field values, and they cannot give up their only two offensive pro bowlers in the same roller coaster of an offseason.

And to be completely honest, the Eagle's don't NEED him. It would be nice yes, but the Eagle's are pretty set with their wide receivers. On the Philadelphia Eagles Official Website Blog Spadaro says this about Jackson:
DeSean Jackson was far and away the best receiver in the post-draft camps. He is more confident in his routes, gets in and out of his cuts with great precision and caught the ball with consistency. Given Jackson's experience already and his speed and quickness, he will be a handful to cover one on one.

Kevin Curtis is still coming off an injury but will have better numbers than last year because he will play a full season.
All of the rookies (Maclin, McCoy, and Ingram) are hard at work learning the offense.
Trading for Marshall would only stunt the growth of the rookies and Desean Jackson, young players who will hopefully be here for the next 4 to 5 years.
