Breaking: Chicago Bears agree to trade Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall to the New York Jets

In a stunning move, the Bears have agreed to trade Pro Bowl Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall to the New York Jets, most likely for a mid round draft pick pending a physical. At 6’4″ 230 Pounds, Marshall is one of the most physically imposing wide receivers in the NFL but he is a bit of a headcase. This will be Marshall’s fourth team in his 9 year NFL career that began with the Dolphins, then went to Denver, and then to Chicago. For his career, he has 773 Receptions, 9771 Yards, and 75 Touchdowns. He is on pace to become one of the all time great receivers but he has never been a good locker room player. For the Jets, this move will give them a true number one wide receiver for whoever their quarterback is this year and it will only cost them a mid round NFL Draft Pick. However, if the Santonio Holmes trade from a few years ago has shown Jets fans anything, when there is smoke, their is usually fire with these prima donna wide receivers. The Holmes trade never worked out for the Jets, as the fifth round pick they gave the Steelers allowed the Steelers to select Antonio Brown, who is arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL today. Jets fans better hope this trade works out better as they have not shown that they have the ability as a franchise to corral headcase players and get the best out of them. Marshall is also coming off his worst year in the past four, where he battled injuries and inconsistency.,d.eXY
