Now that Brandon Marshall is a former wide receiver for the New York Jets, we take a look at his top plays in the green and white. 

Over the past two years, Brandon Marshall has become a fan-favorite of the New York Jets. His combination of height, brute strength and relentlessness when going after the football made him a nightmare for opposing defensive backs in his first season.

That year, he and Eric Decker helped carry the offense to a 10-6 season, just missing the playoffs due to Ryan Fitzpatrick reemerging as the poor quarterback he always was.

Unfortunately, in Marshall’s second season in green, the emergence of Quincy Enunwa, a younger, faster version of Marshall and Robby Anderson made Marshall expendable and have now allowed the Jets to commit to a full rebuild.

While Marshall may be gone, he put together quite a real of impressive plays in his short, but memorable stint with the Jets.

Here are the top five plays of Marshall’s tenure with Gang Green.

  1. I liked Brandon Marshall….sad to see him gone…..I wish we could get him back with a better contract….I read again recently that Brandon has a way of rubbing people the wrong way with hi comments. I listened to every post game interview and all I heard was a competitiveness to win….no excuses….he stuck up for his teammates….and when he was on the field with Decker…even without a great QB….the Jets were a dynamic receiving threat. Not sure it makes sense to rid themselves of Brandon…and as I have read possibly Decker as well. Seems Brandon, a healthy Decker and Quincy would give the Jets a solid, talented receiving corps…and then be one area of the team that does not need rebuilding. Maybe the contract was just too expensive? But I think the Jets are making a mistake…keep the receiver group intact and this year rebuild in other area of the team…
