Richard Thomas Marshall (born December 12, 1984) is an American football cornerback who is currently a free agent. He was released on October 27, 2014. He was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the second round (58th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played college football at Fresno State.
During his rookie season, Marshall played in portions of all 16 games. Marshall spent the first part of his career in the nickelback role, playing behind Chris Gamble and Ken Lucas. After the 2008 playoff season, Ken Lucas was released from the team, thus promoting Richard Marshall to the starting lineup.
The NFL Network voted a play by Marshall as the "Number 1 play of the 2008 preseason". The play involved Marshall intercepting a fake field goal flick from the holder to the kicker and running it back for a touchdown.
Marshall signed a three-year contract worth 16 million dollars as an unrestricted free agent with the Miami Dolphins on March 14, 2012. In 2012, it was reported that Marshall was out with a back injury. On August 20, 2013, he was released by the Dolphins.
