A few days ago, wide receiver Brandon Marshall was released from the New York Jets. According to reports, Marshall requested to be released from the second clown franchise that calls the “Big Apple” home. To me, that’s saying that Marshall is serious about winning a championship before his career is over. Today, Tops Sports lists four destinations that would be a perfect fit for the All-Pro wide receiver.
1. New England Patriots
We all saw what happened when Randy Moss joined the New England Patriots in the offseason 2007. Both Tom Brady and Randy Moss would have one of the best seasons of their pro football careers. If Brandon Marshall signs with the Pats, they are a guaranteed lock to repeat as Super Bowl Champions, unless “Brady falls off a cliff” and declines.
2. Philadelphia Eagles
One of the contributing factors that led to the Philadelphia Eagles midseason collapse was their inability to score points in crucial moments. The way that teams can accomplish that is by having playmakers at the wide receiver position. Unfortunately, the Eagles have only one playmaker at the receiver position in Jordan Matthews. Nelson Aguilar does not scare anybody on defenses. Signing Brandon Marshall would be a significant upgrade.
3. Tennessee Titans
The Tennessee Titans were on the brink of making the playoffs for the first time since 2008. They have a solid one-two punch with DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry at the running back position. Tight end Delaney Walker has shown up big time in the passing game ever since signing with the team in 2013. The addition of Brandon Marshall would be another weapon in the passing game to go along with Delaney Walker. To go along with that, signing Marshall would allow the Titans to keep their two first round draft picks and not trade for Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
4. Minnesota Vikings
The Minnesota Vikings started off the 2016 regular season red hot with a record of 5-0. However, they faded down the stretch to an 8-8 record. Sam Bradford had an impressive first season as the team’s starting quarterback. He threw for 3,877 yards, 20 touchdown passes, and only five interceptions. If you line up Brandon Marshall opposite of Stefon Diggs, then the Vikings would become a serious threat to both the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions in the NFC North.
