Former New York Jets wide receiver and American football wide receiver Brandon Marshall has signed a new deal with the New York Giants of National Football League (NFL), the team announced Wednesday.

The newly signed deal is for two years, and the contract is worth $12 million. Brandon Marshall tweeted a picture of his signed contract.

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 players like Sterling Shepard and Odell Beckham Jr. to form a forbidding wide receiver corps for the Giants. Marshall said of 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."

Brandon who is also active in social media shared his very first training with the New York Giants through his Instagram.

 

An eventful first day!

The New York Jets granted Marshall's wish to join Giants and released the wide receiver, Marshall last week, saving overall $7.5 million against their salary cap.

Marshall and the New York Jets discussed the possibility of player’s return in 2017. A source close to Brandon Marshall told that Jets offered a contract extension with no pay cut in his salary, but they eventually decided to part their ways. The New York’s Jets made no attempt to trade him, knowing that it was a long shot.

Marshall was voted by the New York Jets as the team MVP in 2015 as his career stats set franchise records for most catches (109) as well as receiving yards (1,502) in 2015 season.

Earlier in December of 2016, Brandon Marshall missed a second consecutive game due to the hamstring injury, Head Coach Gary Kubiak announced after team’s practice.

Marshall suffered the injury during Dec. 4, 2016, win at Jacksonville. He also missed one game earlier in 2016 because of a hamstring issue, but this injury is more serious compared to other injuries.
