New York Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall revealed how glad he is to be away from his former team, the New York Jets.
Before ending his interview on bad terms during an appearance on the Kirk & Callahan Show on WEEI in Boston, he revealed the following nugget.
“I just knew I couldn’t be in that environment. I think everyone knows the type of personality I am at this point in my career,” Marshall said on “Boomer & Carton” on WFAN. “I wouldn’t have made it through an entire season knowing that we didn’t have a chance. That’s all you want as a player, you just want a chance.”
Marshall was released by the Jets by his own request to seek out work with a contending team. The Giants certainly fit that mold, and he hopes they can get him to a Super Bowl before he retires.
Speaking of the Jets, they made numerous, very surprising offseason moves in addition to letting Marshall go. Defensive tackle Damon Harrison, linebacker David Harris and Marshall’s former fellow receiver Eric Decker are all gone as well.
The Jets also opted to pass on drafting a rookie quarterback in lieu of putting their faith in Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg this season.
It is no wonder the Jets are projected as the worst team in 2017. And, it is also not shocking that Marshall jumped out of that sinking ship.
Marshall, 33, will more than likely play out the remainder of his NFL career with the Giants. This seems to be something that already suits him quite well.
