New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall is teaming up with Omaze to provide you with an opportunity to throw him the ball.

By Robby Sabo

Everybody knows Brandon Marshall the football player. It’s hard not to. The guy has compiled 773 receptions, 9,771 receiving yards, and 65 touchdowns during his nine year NFL career.

Now that he’s with the New York Jets, he’s looking to pair up that experience with Eric Decker and improve upon a porous offense from a season ago.

What you may not know is what he’s doing off the field is just as, if not more noteworthy.


Years ago Marshall was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. This is a mental illness he decided to come publicly forward with after several unusual incidents with prior NFL tams (most notably the Denver Broncos).

Since then, his work in the community and efforts toward spreading knowledge about the condition has been nothing short of stellar.

This summer he’s decided to team up with Omaze and give one lucky Jets fan the opportunity to throw him his first Jets touchdown at Met Life Stadium (video above).

It’s been dubbed Project 375.

Should you win you’ll also grab lunch with Brandon on that special day. It’s for a fantastic cause, helping eradicate the stigma surrounding mental illness and disorders (something Brandon and his wife are both very passionate about).

To win, just click here to throw your name into that very fortunate hat.

Until then, enjoy watching Brandon Marshall on your Jets.
