  • I like it. Probably low $ w/incentives. He's pretty damn good in the red zone. Vet presence, IF he doesn't whine and moan, could be a nice addition. If he doesn't buy in, PC will send him packin.

  • Well, we needed another receiver to compete with Darboh and Brown. Marshall gives them more physicality, red zone potential, and veteran savvy. This is a good thing if he's healthy.

  • Max value of $2million with incentives. One year deal

    Will be interesting to see with breakdown but guessing more like $1million base salary and playing and result incentives

    Totally fine with that

    Contracts in the $2million area are totally fine to me. Just don't see it moving the needle on "getting burned"

    $8million for unknowns / former good players worries me a whole lot more

  • ...and the crowd goes mild.

    In all seriousness, not thrilled but another potentially decent body in the mix. As long as his name value doesn't impede the progress of the likes of Darboh etc I'm fine with it.

    Glad it's not Bryant also.

    I forgot about Marcus Johnson, who they traded a 7th round pick for in the Michael Bennett trade. Though I'm not confident he makes the roster.

    Was waiting to hear the contract numbers before commenting. I think it's definitely a fair deal for both parties. It allows us to bring him in and evaluate him in our system without doing too much damage to our cap if he doesn't work out, while giving him the opportunity to prove himself worthy of more money if he were to have a good year again.

    Odds are more likely that things will work out somewhere in the middle of those two scenarios, but I like the potential vs. the cost of this deal.

    That’s right I forgot about him as well. He’s a speedy guy if memory serves.

  • To be honest, I'm not expecting much from Marshall and I won't be surprised if he doesn't make the final roster. That being said, for $2 mil max if he meets incentives, it's worth a shot.

  • Fair deal to give to a vet like Marshall. I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't make the roster. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being our #1 or #2 receiver. Kinda crazy to think he signed a 2 year/$12MM contract just a year ago with NYG and now he's signing a 1 year that maxes out at $2MM.

    Let's hope that ankle of his is right and he can be a contributor.

  • I would have rather paid a little more for Maclin or Bryant if we're going to add a veteran WR.

    But maybe this is good for both sides. Marshall is cheap and knows he has to behave and perform if he wants to make any more money playing football.

    Critical thinking is pretty much dead too. I miss the hearsay rule.

    I agree. Even if they use Marshall solely in short yardage and red zone, he is worth $2 million if healthy. His size, physicality, jump balls, blocking, clutch plays, experience are all things the WR corps was missing. Question marks: age, injuries, dropped balls (10% in his career).

    I think anything like those 2015 numbers are in his rear view mirror for good. I'd be pleasantly surprised if we saw something in the neighborhood of those 2016 numbers, but he's another injury and another year older than when he put up those numbers. But again, for the contract the Seahawks gave him, it's worth a shot.

    FYI, the Jets actually had a pretty good passing offense in 2015. Marshall had a monster year and Eric Decker also had 80 catches for 1000+ yards and 12 TDs.

    Only 66 passes thrown to Marshall in 2016 were labelled "catchable." He was also the 11th ranked run blocker among WRs.

    If he ends up with 500+ yards and/or 5+ TDs, this was a steal.

  • Great signing. Marshall keeps himself in great shape and we're getting him for next to nothing. He's not making enough money for our coaches to feel compelled to keep the younger guys on the sidelines.

  • This is an interesting addition which may or may not work out. Bob Condotta believes from what he is hearing that Marshall's contract allows him to be cut after camp with little or no cost to the team if he proves unable to earn a spot on the team.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    I also amended my statement a bit later on. I commented before seeing the contract details, which was my bad. In my OP, I did also state that I would be in the minority, and that I hoped I was proven wrong, not sure why that was kind of glossed over...

    Regardless, we'll see in the coming months how this plays out.

    That seems a lot more like somewhere in the range of decent to good value than a steal to me.

  • I'm not too sure I like this move. I was hoping to see Darboh and Moore step up, maybe they aren't ready too. That is disappointing.

  • i'm totally okay with this because several of our younger guys like Darboh, Moore, Jaron Brown and Marcus Johnson should learn from watching Marshall use his body to protect the ball.
