The New York Giants have agreed to a 2-year deal worth $12 million with wide receiver Brandon Marshall. After cutting Victor Cruz, the Giants were able to make this move, and now possibly have the best receiving trio in the NFL with Marshall, Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Sheppard.
Marshall is coming off his worst season in the NFL, but that had little to do with his ability to still play the game at a high level at 32 years of age, and has a lot to do with the quality of quarterback play for the Jets.
Just two years ago Marshall caught 109 passes for 1,500 yards and 14 touchdowns. There is no reason to believe he can't put up similar numbers playing with a quarterback like Eli Manning. Also with Beckham and Sheppard, defenses will be forced to play single coverage on Marshall, which could result in a monster year.
Luckily for Marshall the only thing changing is the color of his jersey. He will not have to move and will continue to play his home games at Metlife Stadium.
