An NFL receiver caught 100 passes in 16 games this season with 1,295 yards, 12 touchdowns and was named to the Pro Bowl.
What a waste.
Welcome to the mind of Bears wideout Brandon Marshall .
"I really believe I had a down year," Marshall said during a podcast Tuesday. "I didn't have a chance to really work. I had a surgery, so that put me back, and I didn't really like the way my game was last year. I'm going hard and I'm really going to revamp my whole game and come back a totally different player, something you guys never seen before."
Marshall will turn 30 in March, but he is coming off of back-to-back simply beastly seasons. Can you believe the Dolphins traded him for a pair of third-round picks? Jeff Ireland, kids.
Marshall is clearly motivated. Expect Jay Cutler to be motivated as well to validate that extra-large contract he just signed. That should mean another 170-190 targets for Marshall. He is a top-five fantasy wide receiver for next year.
