The Chicago Bears have traded wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the New York Jets for a fifth-round draft pick.
With the Jets picking up the veteran Marshall the time of Percy Harvin with the team should come to an end. Harvin was set to make $10.5 million next season but will now be replaced by Marshall who will play opposite of last year’s free agent signing Eric Decker.
The addition of Marshall gives the Jets a legit number one wide out to pair with Decker who is more of a number two.
Marshall played with the Miami Dolphins back in 2010-2011 when new Jets head coach Todd Bowles was there.
In 13 games last season Marshall cayght 61 passes for 721 yards and eight touchdowns.
