After missing much of the 2017 season due to injury, New York Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall has set a lofty goal for himself in 2018.

Last season obviously didn’t go the way either the New York Giants or Brandon Marshall planned. The team struggled to a three-win season, and Marshall only played five games before an injury sidelined him for the rest of the year.

Marshall, who was brought in to take pressure off Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard, didn’t have the impact he wanted to, producing only 18 catches for 154 yards and not reaching the end zone.


However, assuming he isn’t a cap casualty, Marshall has a lofty goal for next season. He wants to win Comeback Player of the Year.

Marshall has the talent to have a bounce-back year, being a six-time Pro Bowler, most recently in 2015 with the New York Jets. He spent two seasons with the Jets, producing 168 receptions, 2,290 yards, and 17 touchdowns, 14 of which came when he led the league in 2015. He was also an All-Pro in 2012. He’s caught 959 passes for 12,215 yards and 82 touchdowns for his career.

Marshall has never made the playoffs despite all of his individual success throughout his career. He has a history of run-ins with coaches and teammates and has been diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder.

Beckham wished luck to his veteran teammate, and Marshall seemingly elected to challenge the young superstar to set the same goal for himself.

The two are very close friends off the field but are also very competitive players. If both set their minds at coming back stronger than ever, opposing defenses could be in trouble come 2018.

The Giants had their share of headaches this season, with Eli Apple having run-ins with players and coaches, even being called a cancer by Landon Collins at one point. Marshall has said he wants to help mentor Apple, as he has learned how to avoid conflict with his teammates as he has gotten older.
