After signing with the Giants, Brandon Marshall referred to himself and Sterling Shepard as "No. 2s" behind Odell Beckham.
A Giant for two years and $11 million, Marshall insisted he took far less money than offered elsewhere -- which is believable. Saying all the right things, Marshall insisted he won't complain about targets, is a willing mentor for younger OBJ and Shepard, and joined the G-Men to compete for a Super Bowl. "The best way I can describe how I approach it is being able to have a real shot at [a championship]," said Marshall, who turns 33 this month. "I think that is what I have here." Mar 8 - 8:23 PM

Giants signed WR Brandon Marshall, formerly of the Jets, to a two-year, $12 million contract.

Marshall takes a pay cut in annual average to stay in East Rutherford and join a contender. He was owed $7.5 million from the Jets before being cut. The Giants badly needed another proven receiver to take heat off Odell Beckham and upgrade on Victor Cruz. Marshall meets those qualifications and should be in line for a nice bounce-back season in a pass-happy offense that doesn't currently employ a strong running game or tight end. Eli Manning will have to pick up his play to make it work, however. Marshall turns 33 in two weeks but is back to fantasy WR2 status.

Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports the Patriots and free agent Brandon Marshall have "some mutual interest."

After being released by the Jets, Marshall was inevitably going to be linked with the Patriots at some point. Perhaps New England will show some interest, but they finally have quality options at receiver and bigger issues on the other side of the ball. Marshall has also been linked with the Giants and Ravens.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano considers the Giants a landing spot for free agent Brandon Marshall.

Marshall fills multiple needs for the Giants as an outside receiver with size to complement Odell Beckham. He was scheduled to make $7.5 million with the Jets, but may be open to a team-friendly deal to stay in New York. The Giants could use Marshall to upgrade their red-zone offense after they ranked in the bottom half of the league last year. Marshall has also been linked to the Ravens.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec expects the Ravens to "explore" the possibility of signing free agent Brandon Marshall.

The Ravens were linked to Marshall even before he was released Thursday. It makes a ton of sense with the Ravens losing Steve Smith Sr. to retirement and Kamar Aiken heading for free agency. Baltimore has done well in the past adding wideouts advanced in age with something left to prove, including Smith Sr., Anquan Boldin, and Derrick Mason. Marshall fits the mold and would be a nice complement to speed WRs Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman.

Jets released WR Brandon Marshall.

Marshall asked for his release in hopes of playing for a team with a better 2017 outlook. The move saves the Jets $7.5 million in cap space. Gang Green's roster purge continues after cutting CB Darrelle Revis, LB Erin Henderson, K Nick Folk, OTs Ryan Clady and Breno Giacomini, and C Nick Mangold. Turning 33 soon, Marshall experienced a significant drop in efficiency in 2016, managing a career-worst 46.1-percent catch rate with three touchdowns on 128 targets. Still, Marshall should draw significant interest from contenders with strong locker rooms. Baltimore beat writers have suggested Marshall as a fit for the Ravens.

Jets coach Todd Bowles was non-committal on the future of Brandon Marshall.

Considering the Jets have recently purged the roster of costly veterans, it seems likely Marshall is the next to go. Unlike Darrelle Revis, however, Marshall's $7.5 million salary is still more than reasonable for his level of play. If the Jets move on, Marshall will have no shortage of suitors on the open market.

Ravens assistant GM Eric DeCosta said the Ravens are looking to add a possession receiver.

"I think we're looking for a guy that can catch the ball, move the chains and get critical first downs when needed," DeCosta said. Brandon Marshall would seem to fit that description, and The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec has already written the Ravens "would at least inquire" if the Jets release him. Baltimore also has a long history of signing veteran receivers at the tail end of their careers, and Marshall would not count towards the compensatory pick formula if he is released. It all makes too much sense to actually happen.

NJ Advance Media's Darryl Slater believes there is a "60 percent" chance the Jets release Brandon Marshall.

Marshall is owed $7.5 million in the final year of his deal, all of which the Jets can save against the cap by releasing him. New York will certainly attempt to trade Marshall before cutting him, but either way it will be something of a surprise if the veteran remains on the roster. If the Jets really want to blow it up, they can save $5.75 million against the cap by releasing Eric Decker.

Brandon Marshall said the Jets have given him "no indication" they plan on releasing him this offseason.

"They haven't said anything otherwise," Marshall said. "No discussions from their side on anything like that." Marshall is a due a non-guaranteed $7.5 million in the final year of his contract and is coming off arguably the worst season of his career. The Jets are rebuilding and are currently over the salary cap. Marshall is one of the bigger names we're tracking heading into the offseason.

Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun believes the Ravens "would at least inquire" about Brandon Marshall if he becomes a free agent.

Marshall is owed a reasonable $7.5 million in the final year of his deal, but the Jets can save all of that against the cap if they release him. Considering he has seemingly worn out his welcome in the locker room and is clearly on the downside of his career, it would not be surprising if they move on. Marshall would fit right in with Derrick Mason and Steve Smith Sr. as veteran receivers the Ravens have added at the tail-end of their careers, and he would offer a good possession presence opposite Mike Wallace or Breshad Perriman. If Marshall is cut, the Ravens should be one of the favorites to land him.

Brandon Marshall "promise(d)" he'll be in the top five in receiving yards in 2017.

"Last year was a down year for several reasons," Marshall said on ESPN's First Take. "I'm not even in the top 30 (right now). I had 700-and-something yards. But this year, I promise you, I'll be in the top five." Marshall's 59 catches and 788 yards were last and second-to-last for his career outside of his rookie year. Set to turn 33 in March, Marshall's Jets future remains uncertain. If he sticks with Gang Green, he's going to need much better quarterback play to fulfill his promise.
Feb 1 - 12:50 PM

Brandon Marshall said he's not open to taking a pay cut.

It conflicts with comments Marshall made earlier this month. "People need to get away from me [being] due $7.5 million," Marshall said. "That's underpaid. Any team should be happy to have me for $7.5 million." Marshall's contract is very reasonable for a No. 1 receiver, but the Jets might not view him that way coming off a down season and turning 33 in March. It would not be a surprise if they decide to move on.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini expects the team to release Brandon Marshall this offseason.

Marshall is entering the final year of his contract and is coming off arguably the worst season of his career. He had a 10-year-low 59 catches for 788 yards, just the second time since 2006 that Marshall was held under 1,000 yards. He also found the end zone just three times after scoring a combined 45 touchdowns the previous four years. Everything can't be blamed on Marshall, however, as the quarterback play was truly atrocious. But Marshall turns 33 in March and is due a non-guaranteed $7.5 million. The Jets are going nowhere fast.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said Brandon Marshall is "still a very good player."

"I don't think he declined significantly," Maccagnan added. The general manager will have a tough decision to make this offseason on Marshall, who is coming off a down season and seems to be something of a dividing force in the locker room. He is owned a relatively small $7.5 million salary next season, however, so Maccagnan could keep Marshall around if he really thinks he is "still a very good player."
