The New York Giants have decided to keep Brandon Marshall in the Big Apple by agreeing to terms on a two-year deal. 

According to Kimberly A. Martin of Newsday (and later confirmed by Adam Schefter), the New York Giants and veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall have reached an agreement on a two-year, $12 million contract on Wednesday.

Marshall, 32, had spent the previous two seasons with the New York Jets, totaling 17 touchdowns in 31 starts. In 2015, the big-bodied receiver set franchise records for receiving yards (1,502), catches (109) and touchdowns (14) en route to earning his sixth Pro Bowl selection.

A knee injury suffered in during a tackle in Week 2 of the 2016 season derailed an encore. Marshall made just 59 catches for 788 yards and three touchdowns while the Jets finished with a 5-11 record.

He was then released by Gang Green, along with Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold, Nick Folk and others to kick off the offseason, as his now-former team pursues a rebuild.

The Jets couldn’t quite get him a ring but Marshall, now on his fifth team, has never had a better chance to win a Super Bowl as he’ll now join a two-time Super Bowl MVP quarterback in Eli Manning, an impeccable defense and team up with Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard to form one of the deadliest receiver trios in the game.
