New York Giants receiver Brandon Marshall is learning the offense by facetiming with Eli Manning.
Brandon Marshall has been reviewing plays and signals with Manning as he prepares for his first season with the Giants.
“That’s what it’s all about — having a guy who has a passion and a desire to get better, to keep learning the game of football, to keep having something to prove and we’re both in that same boat going into Year 12, Year 14,” Manning told Dan Duggan of NJ.com back in May. “Always want to get better and make improvements and build a championship team, so that’s what we’re working on.”
“Always want to get better and make improvements and build a championship team, so that’s what we’re working on.”
Thursday, Marshall uploaded a short video of one study session with Manning in progress to his Instagram account.
Earlier this week, while a guest on ESPN Radio, Marshall defended his new signal-caller.
“A lot of people kill Eli — and I’ve been one to look back and kind of have fun with it a few times, too — but he always has this face. People are like, ‘Why is he always looking like that?’ And I truly believe it’s because he’s always thinking. Like he is one of the smartest guys I’ve been around. And I’ve been around some smart quarterbacks. Fitzpatrick, extremely smart. Even Jay Cutler, extremely smart. Eli Manning, I’ve never seen anything like this guy. His brain never stops.”
Marshall spent the last two seasons with the New York Jets and is coming off a career-worst year that saw him catch only 59 passes for 788 yards and three touchdowns.
Let’s hope that the Facetime sessions with Manning work.Training camp starts on July 27.
