Jets WR Brandon Marshall says Matt Forte is the best all around back for the past 8 years

Will Matt Forte play this week?

Matt Forte is headed to the New York Jets

Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall knows Matt Forte pretty well. They were teammates in Chicago and Marshall feels the Jets got themselves a steal.  Forte has been a beast, but Marshall feels he has been the best all around back in the NFL over the past 8 years.

“This is a guy that, to me, over the past eight years has been the best all-around back our league has had,” Marshall told Darryl Slater of NJ Advance Media. “I think it’s going to be a treat for all of New York to just sit back and watch him really work.”

“He does it all. He picks up blitzes, he puts his nose in there, he catches the ball out of the backfield. He has amazing vision. He’s a leader. He’s the type of guy you want in your locker room.”
