Brandon Marshall joins the Seahawks

In 12 NFL seasons, Brandon Marshall has never been to the playoffs.

Now, he’s joining a team that would conceivably give him a chance.

Marshall sent out word via Instagram today that he had joined the Seahawks. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that it’s a one-year deal, worth a maximum of $2 million if he hits all his incentives.

The 34-year-old wide receiver was released by the Giants this offseason, after playing just five games last year because of an ankle injury. He’s a few years removed from peak productivity, but caught 109 passes for 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns for the Jets in 2015.

The Seahawks are in the midst of a considerable retooling, and clearly needed to reinforce their offense after a number of offseason departures including wide receiver Paul Richardson.

  1. no bad move by marshall. hes not gonna get any stats. hes still got some left in the tank, and wilson is a good qb. but id say all marshall has got left at this point is the ability to go up and snag jump balls on the sidelines. what is wilsons worst throw? his floater.
    jimmy graham didnt catch a single one of those in three years for seahawks

    They will be lucky to win 6 games or get 3rd in the division. Brandon, you’re better than the scrub team.

  3. I’ll take it – we could use a big body at WR – even if he’s a possession receiver only – there’s value there.

  4. The Seahawks peaked just before the int that cost them SB XLIX and they have been on a downward trend since. While BM can not reverse that trend, he may slow it down.

    if niner816 says it over and over again it must be true. Why play the games. Season’s already over. The scrubby seahawks will have to settle for 2-14 with their only two W’s coming against the team theyve beat 10 times in a row, the niners.

  6. What does it say that a player older than Dez Bryant gets a shot at this point in the off-season?

  7. I can see them kicking the tires on him,maybe kicked to the curb,,,or a red zone target,,,,,

  8. He needs to show he can make the team, first. I expect him to compete and do so, but there are no guarantees. Remember, the Seahawks cut veterans that don’t fit or hurt the team in the past. Having pointed that out, welcome to the Seahawks Brandon.

    My real concern is the distraction created by his T.V. Obligations. If that doesn’t get in the way, this is a good pickup.

  9. Brandon Marshall has had some really good games against Sherman, watch out niners fans.

    Perfect fit- Team and Player that were once great, and are now suddenly irrelevant.

    Yah. A team with a 29-year-old HOF QB is “irrelevant.” Right.

  11. Hawks haven’t had a decent big-body receiver since Sydney Rice, and we need one. This is a good pickup for the money.

    The Bears screwed up when they got rid of him without a viable replacement.

    No…..no they didn’t, Marshall was a disaster for the locker room and Bennett taboot. The Bears screwed up when they fired Lovie and brought in Trestman, period. Move on guy, it’s a new day in Chicago, gotta let go of the Kevin White bust obsession and friggin’ Brandon Marshall.

  13. Brandon is smart, he took a offer to play at least another year in the NFL…he knows he’s almost at the end of the road but has little more gas in the tank to help out a team…ARE YOU WATCHING DEZ??
