Brandon Marshall is on the move again – and the New York Jets’ roster purge of big-name players with big salaries continues.
Marshall is the latest star to be cut by the Jets, who have also parted ways with Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold, Nick Folk and Breno Giacomini this offseason.
In a statement posted on Instagram , Marshall thanked several members of the Jets organization, including owner Woody Johnson, general manager Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles “For bringing me in and embracing me.” He also thanked, by name, members of the equipment and training staffs, the media relations department, the maintenance crew – and even the media.
“I’m looking forward to finding a great organization w I can contribute and bring home a championship. I know I have a lot left to give, andmichi marshall and I will truly miss the Jets, but we are excited for what lies ahead.”.
Marshall, who turns 33 on March 23, played two seasons for the Jets, and set franchise records with 109 catches and 1,502 yards receiving in 2015 while being voted the team’s MVP by his teammates.
After a terrific first season with the Jets, capped by his sixth Pro Bowl selection, Marshall endured a difficult second campaign in New York.
During his final meeting with Jets reporters in January, Marshall said the gaudy numbers and big contracts are no longer important to him.
