The former Cimarron Memorial player and the former UNR star returned from a knee injury that limited his participation in spring training after playing only 11 games with the Broncos last season.
"I thank Oakland for this opportunity," Marshall wrote on Friday morning on Twitter. "Unfortunately, I had to use the training camp to regain optimal health and that's what I did! Ready for what God has for me next. "
Marshall did not dress for Thursday night's Seattle playoff game after playing in the second half of last week's game against Green Bay in Canada as many other veterans missed out.
Raiders coach Jon Gruden said at the time that the team wanted to know where he was in his recovery.
"From a health point of view, he had dark moments coming back from his knee," said Gruden in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. "I think he is gradually getting back into shape and speed of football. That's the key to his game. So we wanted to give him some extra opportunities just to prove to ourselves that he was back. "
The Jaguars' fifth round pick in 2012 spent a season with Jacksonville before signing with Denver. Marshall spent six seasons with the Broncos, registering more than 100 tackles three times.
Denver declined to choose the option of his contract with Marshall in February, after being limited to 11 games last season.

The Raiders must reduce their number to 53 before Saturday 13h. deadline.
