New York Jets Acquire WR Brandon Marshall...
Saturday, March 7, 2015 - The Jets recently made a trade that netted them all-pro wideout Brandon Marshall from the Chicago Bears in exchange for a fifth round pick.
At 30 years of age, Marshall did not reach 1000 yards receiving this year due to injuries, but will look to bounce back with the Jets. The move gives New York another wideout to complement WR Eric Decker, whom they inked to a 4 - year deal last offseason. Many believe this trade adds to the speculation that the Jets will make a move to go after the prized Oregon QB prospect, Marcus Mariota. He would have two established wide receivers to help his transition into the NFL.
The mercurial WR Percy Harvin is expected to be released from the team soon.
