Jets Are Releasing Brandon Marshall

The Jets are releasing wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

This will create $7.5 million in cap space for the Jets. It does create a need for the go to guy role on offense. The Jets surely could use a big-time receiver to help out whomever plays quarterback for them next season.

Time will tell whether Marshall continues his career with a contender or goes into the media. After eleven years in the NFL with no Playoff appearances, it is tough to blame him for not wanting to go through a rebuild.

This ends the receiver’s two year stint with the team. Year two was unproductive as Marshall battled some injuries and poor quarterback play. Year one was spectacular, though, as he posted 1,502 yards, and 14 touchdowns and helped push the Jets to 10 wins.
