Draft Scout Brandon Marshall News
09/28/15 - WR Brandon Marshall had another big game for the Jets in a 24-17 loss to the Eagles on Sunday, when he collected 10 catches for 109 yards and a touchdown. Marshall is on pace to set franchise records with 124 catches and 1,456 yards. No Jets receiver has ever caught 100 passes in a season while only one wideout - Hall of Famer Don Maynard - has surpassed 1,400 yards in a season.
But Marshall also provided reminders of how he has worn out his welcome in three different cities thus far. In the first quarter, Marshall managed to fumble the ball backwards while being tackled following a short completion. The ball bounced out of bounds for an eight-yard loss.
In the fourth quarter, one of the Jets' last hopes was extinguished when Eagles linebacker Jordan Hicks out-hustled Marshall for an interception at the Philadelphia 32-yard-line.
Those plays paled in comparison, though, to the all-time head-scratcher authored by Marshall in the second quarter, when he tried to lateral to tight end Jeff Cumberland following a 15-yard gain. The ball never even got to Cumberland: First it bounced off linebacker Connor Barwin before it fell to the ground, where Hicks scooped it up. The Eagles scored seven plays later to extend their lead to 24-0.
At halftime, Marshall told Fox Sports sideline reporter Pam Oliver that his play was "...the worst play in NFL history." He didn't back down from that assessment after the game.
"That was probably the worst play in NFL history," Marshall said. "You can't do that. The damage outweighs the reward so much. I think we were down 17-0 at that point."
09/27/15 - WR Brandon Marshall had his usual interesting game on Sunday, when he finished with 10 catches for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' 24-17 loss to the Eagles. Marshall surpassed 10,000 yards for his career. He reached the milestone on a 14-yard catch. Marshall has a touchdown catch in all three games this season and has back-to-back 100-yard efforts. However, Marshall also authored one of the most bizarre plays of the season in the second quarter, when he tried to lateral to TE Jeff Cumberland after a 15-yard gain. The ball bounced off Eagles LB Connor Barwin and was recovered by LB Jordan Hicks. The Eagles scored seven plays later.
09/21/15 - WR Brandon Marshall is off to a good start with the Jets. He has 13 receptions for 163 yards and two touchdowns, one in each game, after recording seven catches for 101 yards Monday.
03/06/15 - WR Brandon Marshall will be traded by the Bears to the Jets for what has been reported to be a fifth-round pick in this year's draft. The deal cannot be made official until the new league year begins at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, when free agency opens. The deal is also contingent on Marshall passing a physical.
Marshall, who turns 31 on March 23, caught 61 passes for 721 yards in 13 games last season, marking his lowest production since his rookie season in 2006. However, he did catch eight touchdowns and his 6-foot-4, 230-pound frame will be a welcome addition to the Jets' receiving corps.
The Jets signed Eric Decker last offseason, and he caught 74 passes for 962 yards and five touchdowns despite inconsistent quarterback play. Jeremy Kerley was the team's next leading receiver - with just 38 catches for 409 yards. The Jets' wideouts combined for eight total touchdown catches in 2014.
Marshall's $7.5 million salary becomes guaranteed Tuesday, and the Bears were believed to be open to dealing the 10th-year veteran as new head coach John Fox and general manager Ryan Pace evaluated the roster.
The Bears acquired Marshall from the Miami Dolphins for two third-round draft picks in 2012. Reunited with Jay Cutler, who had been his quarterback in Denver, Marshall caught 218 passes for 2,722 yards and 23 touchdowns in his first two seasons in Chicago.
12/08/14 - WR Brandon Marshall was placed on reserve/injured by the Bears Monday (Dec. 8). Head coach Marc Trestman said Marshall is out of the hospital after suffering two broken ribs and a collapsed lung in the Bears' loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night and had spent the past three days in the hospital due to the lung injury.
