Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Brandon Marshall was not healthy enough to fully participate in the team’s offseason workouts since he was signed last month, but coach Pete Carroll expects him to be ready for training camp.

Carroll told the Seattle Times last week that he was being cautious with Marshall due to a balky hamstring.

“We’re just making sure that we don’t have a setback on a hamstring that’s recovering,” Carroll said. “We talked about it (Thursday) — he’s got a solid six weeks, he’ll be well. We need to do a really good job as we reintroduce him back into our tempo and speed and all that, that we don’t overdo it early in the excitement to see what he can do and all.”

A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Marshall recorded just 18 receptions for 154 yards and zero touchdowns over five games with the New York Giants before an ankle injury ended his season.

The Giants released him in April and he signed with the Seahawks in May.

For his career, Marshall has 959 receptions for 12,215 yards with 82 touchdowns in 172 games with the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, New York Jets and Giants.
