Highlights Of The Week
Brandon Marshall plans to retire from NFL in 2 years
New York Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall is already talking retirement.
The six-time Pro Bowler revealed Saturday that he plans to play just two more years.
“I just decided that last week. Two more years, get my Super Bowl, have a little bit more fun, and then I’m going to go change the world in the mental health space,” Marshall said at the NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo at MetLife Stadium.
It’s no surprise that Marshall has plans to bring awareness to mental health. He was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, also known as BPD.
The wideout just signed a two-year, $12 million deal as a free agent with the Giants this offseason. He was slated to make $7.5 million with the Jets this year before he was released.
Marshall has eight 1,000-yard seasons since he was drafted in 2006. According to NFL research, Marshall has been the most productive receiver in football over the last decade in terms of both catches (921) and receiving yards (11,752).
