The Bears took a look at Brandon Marshall — but not that Brandon Marshall — on Monday.
The veteran linebacker, and not the former firebrand Bears receiver, worked out at Halas Hall, sources confirmed. A former Super Bowl champion with the Broncos, where he played alongside Danny Trevathan, Marshall hasn’t played an NFL snap since 2018. Marshall spent 2019 with the Raiders but did not enter a game.
Marshall, who is now 31, was a fifth-round pick of the Jaguars in 2012 but cut him a year later. He joined the Broncos, where he started 63 games over six years, totaling 416 tackles and 6 1⁄2 sacks. After recovering from a knee injury, Marshall prepared this spring for a return after sitting out the 2020 season.
The Bears have an open roster spot after cutting tight end Darion Clark on Sunday, but it’s unclear how interested they are in Marshall. They begin mandatory veteran minicamp Tuesday.
