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. Feb 14 - 9:11 AM

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.

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."

Brandon Marshall intimated he'd take a pay cut to remain with the Jets in 2017.

Coming off his worst season since his rookie year, Marshall — who turns 33 in March — is owed $7.5 million in 2017. "I'll play for free. My bills are paid," Marshall said of a potential cut. Typically, tunes like that change once the new league year actually rolls around.
Jan 2 - 4:33 PM

Brandon Marshall said he is "confident" he is still an "elite receiver."

That may be the case, but Marshall did not show it on the field this season. That said, he was hampered by injuries all year, and the quarterback situation in New York was among the worst in the league. Marshall is owed a reasonable $7.5 million in the final year of his deal in 2017, but it is possible the Jets decide to move on. Marshall will be 33 in March, but he says he wants to play into his late 30s.

Brandon Marshall (hip, shoulder) is inactive for Week 17 against the Bills.

And thus ends a monumentally disappointing season for the six-time Pro Bowler. Marshall underperformed on a grand scale in 2016 after being drafted as a second-rounder in most fantasy leagues. He scored just one touchdown over his last 10 games, a far cry from 2015 when he tied for the league lead with 14 receiving touchdowns. Injuries and the loss of Eric Decker certainly played a role in Marshall’s decline this year, as did Ryan Fitzpatrick’s awful play at quarterback. Marshall still has a year left on his contract but it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Jets moved on from him this offseason.

Brandon Marshall (hip, shoulder) is questionable for Week 17 against the Bills.

Marshall should play through the issue, and it could be his final game with the Jets. Marshall was one of the biggest busts of the 2016 fantasy season.

Brandon Marshall (hip) was officially "DNP" on Thursday.

Earlier reports had Marshall as practicing. This leaves his status for Sunday's finale up in the air. Closing out a lost age-32 campaign, Marshall is severely beat up.

Brandon Marshall (hip, shoulder) returned to practice Thursday.

It looks like he will play in what could be his final game as a Jet. Even so, Marshall is not a viable fantasy option at this point.

Brandon Marshall reportedly created a "raucous locker room" with a halftime rant during Saturday's loss to the Patriots.

Team sources told ESPN New York the halftime rant was "fiery" and "irked some teammates." Jets SS Calvin Pryor suggested Marshall was trying to fight teammates. "When we're getting blown out at halftime, there's no reason to be fighting amongst each other," said Pryor. "Sometimes, how you feel can be saved for another time." Jets DE Sheldon Richardson called Marshall's halftime behavior "embarrassing." Marshall has routinely worn out his welcome with previous teams and could be doing the same in New York. Turning 33 in March, Marshall is owed a $7.5 million base salary in 2017.

Brandon Marshall (back) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Marshall routinely sits out early-week practices. It's unclear if he'll play in the meaningless Week 17 finale. If he does, Marshall won't be a fantasy option.
