Chicago Bears general manager says Brandon Marshall looks better than last year

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall has expressed frustration with the Chicago Bears organization in recent days, suggesting that they didn’t take his hip injury serious enough.

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.

    It’s going to interesting when Alshon
    Jeffrey posts two consecutive weeks of more receptions than Marshall.
    Will Cutler be forced to look his way even though Jeffrey is taking his
    man to school? The Bears wide receiver position will be an interesting
    part of the offense to follow this season only because of Marshall who’s used
    to having the spotlight on himself from his days at Denver, Miami and now
    Chicago will have someone actually threatening to share that spotlight for the
    first time since Eddie Royal did it with him in Denver, but then again, his ego
    hadn’t grown as much as it has now, he was a younger player then and just
    grateful to be making a name for him self.
