The Seahawks released Brandon Marshall on Tuesday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter).
Marshall was let go by the Giants in April, ending his time in New Jersey after just one injury-plagued season. Signed by the Giants to a two-year $12MM deal in 2017, he played in just five games during his brief time in blue. He never was able to develop any chemistry with Eli Manning and caught just 18 passes for 154 scoreless yards before an ankle injury ended his season.
After his release, he didn’t find much of a market for his services.
“I didn’t have a ton of options,” Marshall said in June. “I think the sentiment around the league is that I’m done, and I get it. Rightfully so. When you get on the other side of 30 and your production slips and you have a big injury, people just count you out. So it was an interesting process. It was a humbling process, to say the least.”
After recording just 11 catches for 136 yards and one score with Seattle, this could be the end of the line for the six-time Pro Bowler. For what it’s worth, Marshall says he wants to continue playing (Twitter link via Schefter).

I applaud the effort and work that Brandon Marshall has put in since his diagnosis ears ago. But it’s time to realize that his borderline hall of fame career is over and to give it up. Nothing tarnished a legacy then to go from team to team battle injury after injury. Brandon, hang ‘me up and enjoy your family and retirement.
Well Seattle has a shot at the playoffs now. This wife beating turd never won a thing. Good riddance
