Brandon Marshall broke his self-imposed boycott with the local media this morning, but the normally loquacious WR basically remained silent.
Marshall deflected, or flat-out ignored, any questions about his attitude or play since returning from his nine-day suspension at the end of the preseason for "conduct detrimental to the team."
Marshall, who has requested a new contract or a trade, had declined to speak with reporters all last week, after Sunday's game at Cincinnati and again earlier this week. Players can be fined by the NFL if they refuse to speak to the media.
In the most revealing moment of his interview, which lasted one minute and 40 seconds, Marshall said that he is completely healthy.
Marshall had offseason hip surgery and missed time early in training camp with a hamstring injury.
"I think I was 100 percent a long time ago," Marshall said. "I'm just taking the time now to prepare myself for each week, and this week is Cleveland."Marshall did not acknowledge those questions and chose to talk instead in clichés about the Browns' defense.
"They are really physical," Marshall said. "They're smart and they fly all around the field."
