Seattle Seahawks sign WR Brandon Marshall


The Seahawks are likely just hoping the veteran wide receiver has something left in the tank.

In five games, Marshall had 18 receptions for 150 yards.

In what seems like a perpetual search for big-bodied wide receivers, the Seattle Seahawks took a look at Brandon Marshall earlier this month, bringing in the 34-year-old to gauge his health coming off a severe ankle injury. In 2015, he led the National Football League in receiving touchdowns (14) as part of a 109-catch, 1,502-yard campaign with the Jets.

A six-time Pro Bowler, Marshall has registered 959 career receptions for 12,215 yards and 82 touchdowns in 172 games over 12 seasons with the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, New York Jets and Giants.

The Seahawks are in the middle of organized team activities so Marshall could be in Seattle getting reps with his new teammates as soon as tomorrow. However, playing with a top-notch quarterback in Seattle, Russell Wilson, could help Marshall stage a revival, and the team could use even a lesser version of his former self.

On Tuesday, that concern went out the window when Marshall announced he would be signing with the Seattle Seahawks.

Marshall, 34, gives Seattle a big body alongside Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett, not to mention more than a decade of National Football League experience. Others on the depth chart include: Marcus Johnson, a 23-year-old with five career receptions; David Moore, a seventh-round pick last year; Damore'ea Stringfellow, a 2017 undrafted free agent yet to play an National Football League snap; and Keenan Reynolds, a former Navy quarterback also yet to see regular season action in the NFL.

Since entering the National Football League in 2006, Marshall has been one of the most productive wide receivers.
