Veteran wideout Brandon Marshall is now a member of the New York Giants.
It’s probably a good thing, seeing as the New York Jets now sound like a team interested in bringing on veteran quarterback Jay Cutler.
Marshall and Cutler don’t have the best history after playing together for the Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears.
Marshall made it clear while talking with Rich Eisen that a reunion wouldn’t have worked out:
Call it a crisis averted—Marshall gets to go compete for a playoff berth with the Giants while trying to act as a mentor for the guy by the name of Odell Beckham Jr.
Though details are scarce and will remain that way, Cutler and Marshall didn’t get along in the end during their stint with the Bears, and it wasn’t long before the wide receiver wound up traded to New York at a rather cheap cost. The Jets wound up being his fourth team since entering the league in 2006.
As for Cutler, he’s still on the market after being released by the Bears, though he won’t last long.
Unfortunately for fans, they won’t get to see how a reunion would have worked out. They’ll just have to take Marshall’s word for it.
