On the east coast, Former New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall has signed a deal with the New York Giants

On Wednesday, Brandon Marshall  agreed to a two years deal and worth $12 million, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Marshall said on a conference call:

“They definitely didn’t offer me the most money. It probably was the least money. It was all about championships, to get straight to the point. They presented the best opportunity to be in a championship organization.”

Marshall will team with Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard. He weighed in on joining the Giants:

“I just think there is a lot of opportunity on the other side of Odell, with a young guy in Shepard being in the slot. Just to keep defensive coordinators and the opposing defense honest. I think there is a lot of opportunity to definitely produce, given that Odell is on the other side.”

Before he accepted the deal with the New York Giants it was said that the Jets discussed the possibility of a return in 2017 offering him a contract extension with no pay cut. Unfortunately they decided to part ways. The move ended up saving the Jets $7.5 million against their salary cap.
