The Chicago Bears need to be very encouraged by the attitude of star wide receiver Brandon Marshall so far this offseason. Marshall went on record yesterday that he was in love with the team’s new offense, when he gushed about new head coach Marc Trestman and the team’s new playbook.

Today, he is discussing his health and Marshall is being just as positive.

Marshall has been dealing with hip issues that have plagued him for the past couple of seasons and he recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery. He took the extra time necessary to make sure he was 100 percent before testing out the knee and all systems now appear to be a go.

“The good thing about the procedure I got done and when I got it done is, I got it done at the start of the offseason, and when you’re able to do something like that, you can take your time with it,” Marshall said, via Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times. “You can afford to be cautious. It’s about working smarter, and I probably could have started weeks ago, but no rush. We don’t play games until September. As long as I’m in top shape then, that’s all that matters.”

“I’m excited to start this season 100-percent healthy and see how much better I can be, completely healthy.

“I feel so great, man.”

The positivity and excitement that Marshall has been approaching the offseason with is an excellent sign for the Bears and their fans. In the past, you had to worry about where Marshall was mentally, but he is making it very clear this offseason that he is exactly where he wants to be and he couldn’t be happier to get the season rolling.
