Jets receiver Brandon Marshall will be 33-years-old when the 2017 season begins. That’s ancient in NFL wide receiver years.
The Jets would be wise to go young in the next few years and they would be smart to attempt to shed some money. It’s why many are speculating that Marshall could be waived or traded in the coming months. Marshall, appearing on WFAN’s Boomer and Carton Show Wednesday, said that he’s not ready to renegotiate anytime soon.
“People need to get away from me due $7.5 (million),” the receivers said. “Get away from my salary. That’s underpaid. Any team should be happy to have me for $7.5 million.”
Marshall’s first season in New York went extraordinarily well as he caught 109 balls for 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns. Those numbers plummeted this past season, though, as Marshall caught just 59 balls for 788 yards and three touchdowns.
“Last year was just a bad year,” Marshall said. “That’s what happens. When you have a bad year, there’s lots of speculation. It’s toxic. There’s a lot of hoopla, and you need to be a man and deal with it.”
Giants safety Landon Collins told ESPN Wednesday that he and his fellow Giants defensive backs were invited to the infamous Miami boat trip that took place in the hours after New York’s regular season finale.
“We were actually invited. We decided not to go,” Collins said. “Just we wanted – there’s a receivers group and there’s a DBs group – so it was like I’m going to go with my DBs. And we decided to do something different.”
Collins did not offer up what, exactly, his group did.
“I can’t say out loud,” Collins said laughing.
