Brandon Marshall was released by the Giants just last month after his only season came to an end in Week 5 due to an ankle injury. Marshall was struggling in the offense pre-injury to start the season. The Giants eventually tumbled to the second-worst record in the NFL.
Marshall will add a nice option for Seattle offense as a 6 foot 5 receiver among some smaller starting options on the depth chart. The six-time Pro Bowler has at least 5 inches on both Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett.
Brandon Marshall has put in time with the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears and New York Jets over his career. He has 959 catches for 12,215 yards and 82 career touchdown grabs. He is 16th all-time in receptions — only 23 behind Hall of Famer Randy Moss — and is just inside the top 25 in yards (23rd) and touchdown catches (23rd). He also has the most seasons with 100 receptions in NFL history.
