Brandon Marshall and Jay Cutler will be together for a few more years.
After re-signing Cutler to a massive deal this off-season, the team targeted Marshall has another piece that they would like to keep for the long-term. And when Marshall was on The View on ABC this morning, he announced that he signed a three-year extension with the team.
His new contract is three-years, $40 million. He also announced that $1 million of the $40 million will be donated to the Mental Health Community.
Last season, he had 100 receptions for 1,295 yards and 12 touchdowns. He has averaged more than 80 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards since the 2007 season.
Last months, the Chicago Tribune reported that they did not expect Marshall would sign a new contract prior to training camp. Five weeks later, his contract is done.
Before the extension, he was entering the final year of his contract and he was set to make $9.1 million this season. He previously said that “his play will force them to sign me” after the season.
