Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been known for being a head case with each of the teams he has played for, and the Bears have been no different.

During the 2014 season, Marshall was part of a heated locker room argument and has reportedly lost favor from his teammates.
This was nothing new as Marshall was traded by the Denver Broncos after having an attitude problem, which included throwing a tantrum at practice.
The Miami Dolphins acquired the five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver in the trade and kept him for two seasons before he was traded again to the Bears.
Marshall caught at least 100 passes in his first two seasons with the Bears while catching 23 touchdown passes over the course of those seasons and reaching at least 1,000 yards for eight consecutive seasons until an injury-ridden 2014 season.
The Bears signed him to a three-year, $30 million contract extension after the 2013 season, but they are attempting to trade him. He is due $7.5 million in base salary for the 2015 season.
Cutting Marshall would save the Bears $4 million, but it’s highly unlikely that they will let a receiver of Marshall’s caliber hit the market while getting nothing in return.
