Brandon Marshall believes his former employer, the New York Jets, is the perfect destination for quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Brandon Marshall has spoken, and what he says involves Deshaun Watson and one of his former employers.
Marshall believes the New York Jets are the perfect landing spot for the disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback, per TMZ.
“The New York Jets are the perfect landing spot for Deshaun Watson,” Marshall told TMZ.
Marshall, 36, has worked in the media since his last NFL game in 2018 with the Seattle Seahawks. Although he hasn’t officially retired from the league that plays for pay, the highlight-grabbing receiver seems comfortable with his current duties.
Jets fans know Marshall most from his record-breaking 2015 season alongside quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. His 109 receptions and 1,502 receiving yards are both single-season franchise records. The 14 touchdowns he snagged that season tied the record held by Don Maynard and Art Powell.
In a lot of respects, Marshall still views himself as part of the Jets fabric. He oftentimes speaks in “we” when the Jets are mentioned.
“You know where he’s going,” Marshall stated confidently. “You know where he’s going. New York, baby. We love you. Come on. We got you. We got a seat at the table right here.
“He’s going to turn this thing around,” Marshall said. “And, we’ve been waiting for someone like him to lead the way.”
Watson, 25, remains the biggest NFL headline during the tournament month of January. On Thursday, the stud quarterback’s official trade request became news—although he asked the Texans to trade him weeks ago.
The Jets have surfaced as a potential landing spot not only due to certain social media activity from Watson and his camp but also due to the overwhelming draft capital the team acquired in the Jamal Adams trade last summer.
