NFL: Former NY Jets WR Brandon Marshall Agrees to 2-Yr Deal with New York Giants

Posted by DJ Yeroc on 9:05 AM


The New York Jets granted Brandon Marshall’s request to be released and less than a week later, he’s found a new home, well actually it’s the same home just a new team.  The wide receiver agreed to a two-year deal with the New York Giants.

After playing with the Jets for the past two seasons, Marshall has agreed to terms on a two-year, $12 million deal to join Eli Manning, Odell Beckham Jr., and the Giants, sources told Newsday.

Marshall is the second Jets free agent to recently join the crosstown rivals. Nose tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison left in free agency last offseason, signing a five-year, $46.25 million deal with the Giants.

Marshall, who turns 33 on March 23, now is on his fifth team in 12 seasons.

“I’m tired of watching the playoffs on my couch,” Marshall said in January after the Jets finished 5-11 and failed to make the postseason for a sixth straight season.

At the time, the veteran wideout said he’d “probably play until I’m 38, 39.” But he made it known his more pressing goal was to play for a Super Bowl contender. And now, he has a chance to make a postseason run, or better.

The Giants — who bested Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowls XLII and XLVI — ended their five-year playoff drought in 2016 thanks to Manning and Beckham. But they lost to the Green Bay Packers, 38-13, in an NFC wild-card game.

Playing for Ben McAdoo’s team also ensures that Marshall will be able to remain in New York, where he tapes his weekly appearance on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL.”

The Jets initially wanted to keep Marshall and saw him as part of their future, but they eventually granted his request to find a better fit.

Marshall already hinted at his next move a couple days ago, changing his Instagram profile picture to the Giants Super Bowl trophy.
