Giants release Brandon Marshall with failed physical designation

New York Giants

New York Giants

The New York Giants released the veteran wide receiver on Thursday afternoon. General manager Dave Gettleman confirmed the move during his pre-draft news conference.

Marshall signed a two-year deal worth $11 million with the Giants last offseason and was scheduled to earn $5 million in 2018.

It was a swift and unceremonious end to his tenure in NY, the 34-year-old expected to create a fearsome one-two punch with superstar Odell Beckham Jr.in the Giants passing game after signing a two-year, $11 million deal last summer. Brandon Marshall should have realized that before sending out what is now an unfortunate post to his Instagram story on Wednesday.

It's not as though the Giants are struggling at receiver following Marshall's departure.

"The Giants got a helluva defense, they're going to pay OBJ (fellow wideout and pal Odell Beckham Jr.), so coming back". I want to be remembered for the product that I put out on the field.

Marshall, who gained a reputation for being one of the NFL's more outspoken players, also attempted to be a team leader and mentor. There's no doubt that Marshall features an incredible career resume with 959 catches, 12,215 yards, and 82 touchdowns even though he's spent most of his career catching passes from very mediocre quarterbacks.
