Brandon Marshall eyes Giants return despite disappointing seaso

  • Wide receiver Brandon Marshall wants to return to the New York Giants next season. He thinks there are two quality years left in his 33-year-old body, and he wants to complete a résumé that will lead him to the Hall of Fame.

    Marshall signed a two-year deal with the Giants last offseason. He missed the final 11 games of this season with an ankle injury that required surgery.

    It hasn't stopped him from training and rehabbing at the team facility. He has been working as if there is life after 2017.

    " Marshall said. "I'm not just playing this game just to be a guy; I want to be remembered for the product that I put out on the field.,"I'm all-in on football. I've rebuilt my body. I think I'm two great years away from -- and I'll say it, I want to be a Hall of Famer, and I think I got two great years to go to be mentioned with some of the greats

    "So these last few years have been tough, last year with the Jets, this year with the Giants. But I'm hopeful that the next couple years for me will be some amazing years and some of my best work."

    Marshall is said to be progressing well in his rehab. He is already running and will be doing so without restrictions in a couple of weeks.

    Newly hired general manager Dave Gettleman will have a decision to make. Marshall should be healthy and is signed for one more year. He could earn up to $5.5 million, but he produced just 18 catches for 154 yards in five games before suffering the injury and needing surgery.

    Marshall understands the reality of the situation.

    "You know how it is, right? So I was looking for more stability, you get to the plus side of 30, you get injured, the business side of it," he said. "That's the business side of it, history says that you're going to get cut or they are going to ask you to take a pay cut, but I'm built for this and I'll learn from it.", a production slip, that's history. So I'm prepared for that. I've had a lot of change in my life, but one of the reasons why I came to this organization was for stability and also not to be an environment that we created this year
