The clock is officially ticking for Brandon Marshall.
The Giants wide receiver on Saturday revealed he intends to play just two more years before retiring from football.
“It’s two years,” Marshall said at the Health and Fitness Expo at MetLife Stadium, via NJ.com. “I just decided that last week. Two years, get my Super Bowl, have a little bit more fun, and then change the world in the mental health space.”
Still, Charles holds no ill will against the Chiefs, despite signing with division rival Denver on Tuesday.
“I won’t be against Kansas City,” he said. “That sounds crazy, man. I would never be against Kansas City, because at the end of the day, they gave me my chance here. Without them, I wouldn’t be able to show them what I can do. Right here was my first opportunity, my first dream to play in the NFL and everything started here. I wish I could have finished out, but God had a different plan for me, and I’m just excited for the next chapter.”
“I definitely think we have a team that’s going to be in position to win a Super Bowl,” Marshall said. “It’s extremely hard to win a Super Bowl. I’ve been in the league for 12 seasons now on some really good football teams, some really great organizations, and I haven’t been to the playoffs. That tells you how hard it is to make the Super Bowl. So I don’t throw that around lightly.”
Marshall, 33, had his best season in 2015 during his first year with the Jets, with 109 catches for 1,502 yards and a league-leading 14 touchdown receptions. He then logged 59 catches, the lowest since his rookie season, for 788 yards and three scores last season. Still, the 11-year veteran’s 168 receptions were 63 more than any other Jets receiver over that span.
