Jets Rework WR Brandon Marshall’s Contract, Include $1.3M More Gtd

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Jets have reworked the contract of veteran WR Brandon Marshall.

According to Yates, the maximum value of Marshall’s contract has been increased from $24.3 million to $26 million and includes an additional $1.3 million in full guarantees.

Beyond that, the Jets have boosted his 2015 pay from $7.7 million to $9 million and made it fully guaranteed. New York did, however, eliminate his workout bonus in the process.

In 2016, Marshall’s base salary increases from $7.9 million to $9.5 million, but is guaranteed for injury only.

Marshall’s 2017 base salary was reduced from $8.3 million to $7.5 million, and includes a $700,000 de-escalator clause for a Super Bowl victory during any of previous years.

Marshall, 30, came over in a trade a few months ago. He had another three years remaining on his four-year, $39.3 million contract that included $22.3 million guaranteed.

In 2014, Marshall caught 61 passes for 721 yards receiving and eight touchdowns for the Bears over the course of 13 games. His season was cut short after he sustained fractured ribs and a collapsed lung and was later placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Pro Football Focus has Marshall rated as the No. 26 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.
