Former Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall made a surprise appearance on ESPN 1000’s “Carmen and Jurko” and shared some thoughts about his time in Chicago.

Marshall said outside of a group text with some old teammates, he has not really communicated with his old buddy, Jay Cutler, since leaving for the Jets. Marshall did say he bumped into Cutler’s wife, Kristin Cavallari, a few weeks ago.

“I gave her a big hug,” he said. “She’s awesome. She’s the best.”

When asked again if he would reach out to Jay, Marshall changed the topic.

Despite his tumultuous time with the Bears, Marshall couldn’t say enough good things about Chicago.

“We’re going to keep our home here,” Marshall said. “We love Chicago! I’m probably going to raise my kids here.”

“You have that big city feel. There’s still a little bit of everything here, but you have that Midwest humility. I love the type of person here. New York may be too intense. I’m just thinking about my children. I love the type of person that’s here.”

New York may be too intense?
