Wide receiver Brandon Marshall is looking to make a fresh start with the New York Jets after wearing out his welcome with his previous teams.
Marshall has been given a pay increase from the Jets, as his salary over the next three years has risen from $24.3 million to $26 million.
His most recent stint was with the Chicago Bears, where he had a somewhat successful reunion with quarterback Jay Cutler as he reached at least 100 catches, 1,295 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns in his first two seasons.
Marshall was able to reach 1,000 receiving yards for seven consecutive seasons until an injury-plagued 2014 season, and drama ensued in the Bears locker room as Marshall was vocally unhappy.
The Bears finally had enough of Marshall and traded him to the Jets for a fifth-round pick.
Despite his talent, Marshall has been a locker room cancer wherever he went, which also includes the Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins.
The Jets will be getting a surefire No. 1 receiver though, which they have needed for many years. Quarterback Geno Smith will be given one last chance to shine with Marshall, Decker and rookie wide receiver Devin Smith now in the Jets’ receiving corps.
