Brandon Marshall was traded to the New York Jets and now that he reflects back on the situation, he feels he was traded because he had a part time spot on Showtime’s Inside the NFL. Here is what he told MMQB.
“When I sat down with Ryan Pace (general manager) and John Fox (head coach), we met, and I asked, ‘What do you guys think about this?’ It was a big topic,” Marshall said, via MMQB. “And Ryan Pace said, ‘Well, we can do that in the offseason.’ So I was like, ‘Well, what about half the season?’ ‘No.’ ‘What about once or twice?’ ‘No.’ ‘What about bye week?’ ‘No, you can do that in the offseason.”
“Right then, I knew I wouldn’t be a Bear anymore, because I think that the business of the NFL is growing every single day, and players are being told to stay in a box and just play football, and we’re missing out on a lot of opportunities, not only to grow as men and businessmen but to experience different things.”
