According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, 34-year old wide receiver Brandon Marshall will be inking a deal with the Seattle Seahawks. After most recently playing for the New York Giants last season, perhaps a change of scenery will be beneficial for the wideout.
In 2017, Marshall recorded a career low in yards per reception (8.6), and tallied his worst receptions per game since his rookie year with the Denver Broncos back in 2006 (3.6). Granted the veteran only played in five regular season games, he was viewed as a mere decoy to defenders at best.
In Seattle, Marshall should be able to benefit off of a quarterback such as Russell Wilson. Although the offensive line is weak for the most part, Marshall will enter as one of the “bigger” receivers on the active roster. By mixing in rotations between himself and receivers Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett, the only aspect stopping Marshall could be himself.
Last season was the first time in Marshall’s career that he has been forced to miss more than three regular season games, so the upcoming campaign in an alternate uniform will be very telling.
