Brandon Marshall and Rayshon Williams are first cousins. About 18 months ago, Marshall became Williams’ guardian, moving the teen from a troubled life in a dangerous Pittsburgh neighborhood to Denver. “Where we come from, the neighborhood, the percentage of guys that make it is slim to none,” Marshall said. “I left Pittsburgh and went down to Florida and was in a great environment, sort of similar to this. I got a chance to go to college, to graduate from college, get my degree and make it to the NFL, and my way of giving back to him is giving him an opportunity.” The relationship between Marshall and Williams reveals a side of Marshall few Broncos fans have seen — a responsible adult who shows as much interest in his cousin’s report card as his own statistics. — Denver Post
