That lead to a mini-spat which saw Marshall leave the team for ‘personal reasons’, though the Bears have said the two issues weren’t related.
Of course not.
Potentially attempting to get back into the good graces of Marshall, general manager Phil Emery says Marshall looks fantastic and looks better than he was last year.
Per the Chicago Bears Twitter:
LM: Emery says
#Bears WR Brandon Marshall is more dynamic and stronger than he was last year: “I see a better player.”
It’s pretty big praise from Emery considering Marshall, despite his personality warts, posted over 1,500 yards on 118 catches, hauling in 11 touchdowns on a relatively weak receiving team.
Marshall, who left the team late last week was scheduled to return to the organization today, though, no word has been leaked if that’s the case.
Assuming Emery’s mild scouting report of Marhsall is true, sounds like he’s destined to improve off his already stellar 2012 campaign, crazy as that might sound.
