Brandon Marshall is staying in New York!
However, the star wide receiver will no longer be sporting the green and white colors of the AFC East Jets.
Instead, Marshall has opted to sign a two-year deal with the G-Men, otherwise known as the New York Giants.
“They definitely didn’t offer me the most money,” Marshall said on a conference call. “It probably was the least money. It was all about championships, to get straight to the point. They presented the best opportunity to be in a championship organization.”
With the addition of Marshall, Giants quarterback Eli Manning will have arguably the greatest trio of receivers in the league.
The two-time Super Bowl champion already had Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard at his disposal prior to the Marshall acquisition.
Marshall, who turns 33 this month, was voted by the Jets as the team MVP in 2015 after he set franchise records for catches (109) and receiving yards (1,502) in a season. Brandon finished 2015 with 14 touchdowns but was only able to mustard 3 touchdowns in a tough 2016 season.
