Brandon Marshall took to Twitter on Thursday night to engage with his fans, and the star New York Jets receiver dropped a bombshell.
This was in response to the question of, “how many more years do you have left?”
While Marshall didn’t exactly answer the fan’s question, he did make it clear he’s not interested in another transition, which has been an all-too-often occurrence in his career.
He further clarified his stance during his Twitter Q&A session:
If I'm cut tomorrow. I'll retire. This will be my last team⛳️ https://t.co/DSCeBs3iSU

Though he’s blessed with all the talent it takes to dominate on the gridiron, the receiver hasn’t been the easiest man to work with. He has rubbed some people the wrong way, and he dealt with undiagnosed borderline personality disorder until 2011.
As a result, Marshall finds himself with his fourth team in 10 years, and he’s apparently done with all the moving around.
That said, the 31-year old receiver is far from finished with his career. He is signed through 2017 after inking a three-year deal worth $26 million ($9 million guaranteed). Though 2014 was a down year statistically for Marshall, it’s worth noting the Chicago Bears were atrocious as a whole.
Before his disappointing 2014 campaign, the veteran had exceeded 1,000 yards receiving seven years in a row, catching 55 touchdowns during that stretch.
Whether it’s Geno Smith or Ryan Fitzpatrick behind center for the Jets, Marshall is going to have a big impact on New York’s offense, hopefully for years to come.
