NFL - Scoop Du Jour

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall(notes) has a backup plan if NFL owners lock out the players next year, ESPN reports: play shooting guard in the NBA.

"My first team will be the (Denver) Nuggets and my second team will be the (Miami) Heat -- I'm serious," Marshall told ESPN. "There's not going to be any football. If there's a lockout, I have to find a job. I figure the Nuggets will be a better choice because of the welcome home cheer I'll get -- a couple of boos at first. I'm gonna get with a basketball coach and get to work, prepare for the lockout."

Marshall, of course, spent the first four years of his NFL career with the Denver Broncos before joining the Dolphins this year.

Marshall did letter in basketball three times in high school but hasn't played organized ball since then.
