Brandon Marshall says he wants to retire as a member of the Jets

Despite playing for four teams over the course of 10 seasons in the NFL, former Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall insists he wants to retire a member of the New York Jets.

The 31-year-old Jets receiver has 71 catches for 931 yards and nine touchdowns through the first 11 games of the 2015 season — meaning if he continues to show no signs of slowing down, he will be with the Jets for at least a few more years.

Via the New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta:

Brandon Marshall navigated through it all. He’s happy and at peace. He’s found his final professional resting place. The Jets are his last NFL stop. Television, his Project 375 foundation and new business ventures await when his football life ends.

“Once the Jets say, ‘We don’t need you anymore,’ I’m going to venture off into that world,” Marshall told the Daily News. “I’m not playing for another team. Four is all I need. It’s too hard to make new friends and relationships and deal with different egos. I don’t like the business already. So I’m not trying to deal with that.”

Marshall played three seasons with the Bears — totaling 45 games, 279 catches, 3,524 yards and 31 touchdowns.
