The future of Brandon Marshall in Chicago is a bit cloudy at the moment, but that’s only because a long-term deal has yet to be hammered out by the two sides. Where this may cause tension between a team and a player, Brandon Marshall is surpassingly jovial about the situation, claiming that he has faith and confidence that a deal will get done.
And if it doesn’t happen, he’s going to picket to make sure he stays in Chicago.
“I have another year left on my contract. If it happens, it happens, if it doesn’t, I’m glad to be a Bear for another year and I’m going to force them to sign me after next year,” Marshall said Thursday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN Chicago 1000. “One way or another, they’re going to get the deal done.
“But if it comes down to next year, I’ll be picketing outside of Halas Hall for a new deal, a new contract, because I’m not going anyplace.”
This is exactly what Bears fans want to hear, as Marshall is a franchise receiver and he’s helped transform the Bears into an offensive minded team. He’s not guaranteed to be with the Bears long-term yet, but its clear he’ll bend over backwards to make it happen.
