Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter that he has no plans to retire despite an ankle injury that led to him being placed on season-ending injured reserve last week.
“I’m a competitor, and I don’t want to go out like that,” Marshall said. “I’m definitely not going out like that.”
There was some speculation that this could be it for Marshall, but he made it clear that he plans to be back for the 2018 season.
Marshall, 33, is a former fourth-round pick by the Broncos in the 2009 NFL Draft. After four years in Denver, he was traded to the Dolphins in 2010.
Marshall’s time in Miami was limited to just two season before he was once again traded, this time to the Bears in return for two third-round picks. In total, Marshall spent three seasons with the Bears, but was traded for a third time to the Jets in March of 2015.
Marshall was in the final year of his contract and set to make a $7.5 million base salary for the 2017 season when the Jets released him this offseason. He later signed a two-year, $12 million with the Giants.
In 2017, Marshall has appeared in five games and caught 18 passes for 154 yards receiving and no touchdowns for the Giants.
