The New York Jets have released another big-name player: WR Brandon Marshall.
And now the Jets are releasing WR Brandon Marshall, per sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 3, 2017
Schefter also reports the Jets offered Marshall an extension, which he turned down. In fact, the release actually comes at his request.

Marshall was set to count $7.5 million against the cap. He's coming off a rough year in which the 32-year-old caught 59 passes for 788 yards and only three touchdowns.
The Jets have already released OC Nick Mangold and CB Darrelle Revis, to help save cap space. The release of Marshall helps that, but does open up a need at WR, especially with Eric Decker's injury issues.Back to the New York Jets Newsfeed
