Brandon Marshall is the undisputed leader of the Chicago Bears. The receivers look up to him. He takes them and the rest of the team to his South Florida training facility (Fit-Speed Athletic Performance) and whips them into shape.
Marshall has also taken to Chicago. He is a philanthropic leader. He raises money for mental health through his foundation. Chicago has taken to Marshall as well.
Not bad for a player the Miami Dolphins thought would be destructive to a young quarterback like Ryan Tannehill.
In his two seasons with the Bears, Marshall has broken franchise records. He has back-to-back thousand yard seasons and back-to-back hundred reception seasons. Of course, he is Cutler’s best friend and favorite target.
As Marshall continues to add onto his impressive numbers, he needs to continue to mentor Jeffery and now Marquess Wilson. With Marshall’s help, Jeffery became a Pro Bowler. Wilson is hoping Marshall can put a dash of magic on him as well.
With an offseason without surgery and a brand new contract extension, Marshall expects to have his best season yet. That would be a welcome sight to Bears fans.
