Veteran WR Brandon Marshall has signed a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks that could be worth as much as $2 million dollars if all incentives are met. The signing has not yet been announced by the team but has been blown up on Marshal’s social media outlets and confirmed by several media sources. Marshall is off his worst year as a professional, playing in five games and making just 18 catches for 158 yards and no touchdowns. He was supposed to be the perfect bookend for Odell Beckham Jr. who went down with a season ending injury before that scenario could come to fruition.
As recently as 2015, Marshal was able to snag 109 passes for 1502 yards and 14 touchdowns as a member of the New York Jets. In 2016, he managed just 59 catches in 5 games and was released by the team that spring.
Seattle would appear to be the perfect landing spot for Marshall to resurrect the final years of his up-and-down career. The Seahawks parted ways with WR Paul Richardson and TE Jimmy Graham during the offseason. With Doug Baldwin as Seattle’s go to guy, Marshall steps in as the No.3 wide receiver behind the oft-injured Tyler Lockett. At age 34 and entering his 13th season, Marshall has never played in the postseason. Seattle would put him in the mix, making the playoffs from 2011-2016 and missing last year despite going 9-7.
