New York Giants Release WR Brandon Marshall

General manager David Gettleman on Thursday announced the veteran wide receiver has been informed of his release with a failed physical designation. The team is expected to save $5.1 million in salary cap space. Marshall suffered an injury ankle that required season-ending surgery in the same game where Odell Beckham Jr. was lost for the season.

Marshall still has a place in the league, as evidenced by 7.2 YPT and 25 TDs in 49 games over the last four seasons with the Bears, Jets and Giants.

It's not as though the Giants are struggling at receiver following Marshall's departure. I want to be remembered for the product that I put out on the field. 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. "But I'm hopeful that the next couple years for me will be some fantastic years and some of my best work". Up to this point, no team within the division had shown any real interest in signing the former Pro Bowl receiver.

Marshall told Ralph Vacchiano of SNY in December he was close to getting full clearance and planned to play for at least a couple more seasons. Please like and follow on Facebook and Twitter.
