VANCOUVER/CKNW(AM980) - MOJO Sports Radio has learned that B.C. Lion defensive back Dante Marsh will not sign with the NFLâ€™s Kansas City Chiefs.
As first reported last week on MOJO, Marsh had come to terms on a two year deal with the Chiefs.
Jason Medlock, the agent for Marsh told MOJO today that the two sides were unable to agree on the bonus money Marsh was to receive. â€œWe ran into some difficulty as far as with his roster bonus money,â€? Medlock said. â€œDante wants to go in a different direction and we both agreed, it was mutual, it was a mutual stalemate to go in different directions.â€?
Medlock said Marsh was interested in seeing a deal through with the Chiefs but if it didnâ€™t work out, it was always interested in returning to the Lions. â€œHe was going to look at the deal and see if it was going to be a good deal for him and it wasnâ€™t he will stay in B.C.,â€? added Medlock. â€œI believe he was quoted in saying that. Iâ€™m not disappointed, but obviously the players make the decisions and I go out and do any job and try and get the deal done.â€?
The Chiefs also expressed some concern over what condition Marshâ€™s shoulder is in, something Medlock says will not affect a possible season with the Lions.
Medlock now says he will call Wally Buono to try and work out a long term deal with the Lions.
