Brandon Marshall’s unhappiness with the Denver Broncos’ second-round tender might lead the linebacker to skip the team’s offseason workouts.

The Broncos’ contract would pay Marshall $2.533 million, a substantial increase from the $495,000 he was paid last season. But the fourth-year linebacker is seeking a long-term deal.

The Denver Post reached out to Marshall’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, but he declined comment. Voluntary workouts begin April 18 and mandatory camp is expected to start in the middle of June.

Marshall played in all 16 games last season, totaling 76 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks.
