ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Getting waived by the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars for what seemed like the hundredth time, linebacker Brandon Marshall took a drive down I-95 South toward St. Augustine, Florida.Alone with his thoughts, Marshall wondered what had gone wrong and if hed ever get another chance in the NFL.After being cut so many times you start to kind of question your abilities, said Marshall, whos taken a twisting, turning road to become Denvers top tackler.He hit the highway that afternoon in search of himself.I took some time for myself to really think. You know, what am I doing wrong? Or, is it me? Or, why is it happening? Because, Ive never been cut before. Ive always been someone that the team could count on. So, for that to happen, I was just wondering what was wrong.He couldnt come up with an answer but he did find some perspective.The only answer I came up with was just control what you can control, Marshall said. Just keep working no matter what the circumstances are because I feel like we all go through hard times in life, football, with jobs, whatever. I feel like a lot of people dont reach their potential or at least their peak because they give up too soon. Or they dont push through the hard times.I think thats what makes a successful person, because if you keep pushing through the rough times you know then its almost like a cocoon phase. You come out a better version of yourself.That is the story of Marshalls journey from the guy who couldnt even carve out a job for himself on one of the worst teams in the NFL to one whos an every-down linebacker and arguably the defensive MVP on one of the leagues best teams.I would say hes playing at a Pro Bowl level for an inside backer in this league, defensive co-ordinator Jack Del Rio said. Hes very productive, very active. He does a lot, doesnt come off the field. Hes had a Pro Bowl kind of year.Marshall was humbled by such high praise.Hes been around a lot of Pro Bowl guys, Ray Lewis, hes been around a bunch of Pro Bowl guys. So, for him to say that about me it means a lot. I guess Im in pretty good company, Marshall said Friday.Marshall is both a tale of perseverance and overnight success.A third-round draft pick out of Nevada in 2012, he was cut three times by the Jaguars. The Broncos signed him to their practice squad last season, and coach John Fox approached him during a blowout of the Eagles.He came up to me on the sideline and we were winning big — and Im a practice squad guy; he doesnt have to say anything to me. And he came up and said, Brandon, keep working because youre going to get your opportunity, Marshall said. It gave me extra motivation to keep working.Marshall was promoted to the active roster on Christmas Eve and played in the season finale and the playoffs.Last summer, he earned a job in the nickel defence alongside Danny Trevathan and was thrust into a much bigger role with Trevathan missing most of the season with two fractures in his left leg. Marshall leads the team with 106 tackles.Trevathan is eligible to come off IR this weekend when the Broncos (10-3) visit San Diego (8-5), but that doesnt mean Marshall will relinquish the defensive play-calling duties. Hell once again play alongside Trevathan in the nickel.Im real eager. Were both playmakers. We both have great instincts. We both can make plays. So, to have him back will be tremendous, Marshall said.Although he admits he still wonders at times why he couldnt find a spot in Jacksonville, Marshall also knows getting jettisoned by the Jaguars helped him become the player he is today.If you quit, theyre right and then where are you? Youre stuck where you were at and you have nowhere to go, he said. So, no matter what, I decided I was going to keep pushing through.Notes: With all their success, the Broncos could lose Del Rio and OC Adam Gase to head coaching opportunities in the off-season. I think every year when you have good team success individuals get recognized, whether its players or coaches, Fox said. I think its a very positive thing. Weve had guys get opportunities before and Im sure we will again.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Adidas NMD Online Italia .

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens hired Dan Lacroix as assistant coach and Rob Ramage as player development coach, and also gave new responsibilities to some management personnel on Wednesday. Lacroix, 45, replaces Gerard Gallant, who left to become head coach of the Florida Panthers. He worked as an assistant coach in the NHL for seven of the past eight seasons, including last season with the Eastern Conference champion New York Rangers. He previously worked as assistant coach with the Tampa Bay Lightning from 2010 to 2013 and with the New York Islanders from 2006 to 2009. The Montreal native also worked as assistant coach with the Hamilton Bulldogs, the Canadiens main affiliate team in the AHL during the 2009-10 season. "We are very pleased to welcome Dan Lacroix as part of our coaching staff," Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien said in a statement. "Daniel earned the respect of his peers for his coaching skills and his impressive knowledge of the game. He has worked as a coach for almost 15 years, including seven seasons as assistant coach in the NHL. "He knows the Canadiens organization and his experience at the professional level made him a much coveted candidate. He is an excellent addition to our coaching staff and to the Canadiens organization." "Its a step up. Its an opportunity to work for a great organization and with great people," said Lacroix Lacroix had 11 goals in 188 NHL games for five teams in the 1990s. He also played seven full seasons in the American Hockey League with Binghamton, Providence, Hamilton and Rochester. He recorded 213 points in 352 regular season games (101 goals, 112 assists), and totalled 1,618 penalty minutes. Ramage, 55, wass employed by the St.dddddddddddd. Louis Blues organization as amateur scout for the past two seasons (2012-13 and 2013-14). He also worked as an assistant coach with the OHLs London Knights during the 2011-12 season. He replaced Patrice Brisebois, who left to spend more time with his family. A native of Byron, Ont., Ramage played a total of 1,044 regular season games in the NHL between 1979 and 1994 with Colorado, St. Louis, Calgary, Toronto, Minnesota, Tampa Bay, Montreal and Philadelphia. He was drafted first overall by the defunct Rockies in 1979. "Rob is a dedicated and competent hockey person who will contribute to our player development group," said general manager Marc Bergevin. "Our entire organization, and particularly our young defencemen, will benefit from his experience and his knowledge." Ramage registered 564 career points (139 goals, 425 assists), and was assessed 2,224 penalty minutes. He won the Stanley Cup with Calgary (1989) and Montreal (1993). He spent time in prison after being convicted in 2008 of impaired driving causing death. The charge stemmed form a 2003 car accident in Woodbridge, Ont., that claimed the life of one of Ramages passengers, former Chicago Blackhawk Keith Magnuson. Ramages four-year sentence expired this month. The Canadiens also announced that Rick Dudley was promoted from assistant general manager to senior vice president, hockey operations. Scott Mellanby was promoted from director of player personnel to assistant general manager, to work with Larry Carriere. And Trevor Timmins was appointed vice president of player personnel, while retaining his responsibilities as the Clubs director of amateur scouting.
