Brandon Marshall was just recently cut by the New Jersey Jets on their roster making him a free agent in the process. Recent reports are now spreading that he is a high potential target to the New England Patriots in the free agency market. Could he help the Pats retain the title in the coming season?
There is no doubt that Brandon Marshall is one high-caliber player that will be one of the most sought-after free agents in the coming days. He is a six-time Pro Bowler, one-time First-team All-Pro and one-time Second-team All-Pro. He's been in the league for eleven seasons and played for the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears and Jets.
But none of those teams gave Brandon Marshall the taste of a postseason experience as he's never been in the playoffs in his career. And now, latest news are saying that the New England Patriots are one potential destination for him. Can he find his way to the playoffs with the Pats?
According to CBSSports, there's said to be a 'mutual interest' between Brandon Marshall and the New England Patriots. The said understanding could signify the transfer of the 32-year old wide receiver to the Pats in the coming days.
Through his 11th season in the league, Brandon Marshall posted decent figures of 941 excellent reception, 82 touchdowns and a total 12,061 receiving yards. This impressive stats could well a big use for the New England Patriots as they try to defend the title in the coming season.
Surely Brandon Marshall is one of the best wideout receivers out there but it is interesting to see how he will adapt to New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick system.. And if Marshall will agree on compensation by the Pats, he and Brady could form a deadly offensive line that can offer different ways in their passing game.
Perhaps the New England Patriots could be the team that can give Brandon Marshall the things he never tasted as a football player such as a playoff appearance. And with coach Belichick and Brady still with the team, they could run together with Marshall for another Super Bowl title next season.
