Jets WR Brandon Marshall says he won’t “steal” money from the Jets, and would instead retire from the NFL if he cannot continue to produce at a high level.
“Some players, they know they don’t got it anymore and their heart is not in it, and they still take the money,” Marshall said, via Darryl Slater of NJ.com. “That’s taking advantage of your team. I get that it’s a business and get everything you want, but you’ve still got to hold yourself accountable and be accountable to your teammates. When I no longer have it, I’ll walk away.
“That’s taking advantage of your team,” Marshall said. “I get that it’s a business and get everything you want, but you’ve still got to hold yourself accountable and be accountable to your teammates. When I no longer have it, I’ll walk away.”
Marshall added that he still loves the game a lot, and believes he could still have value to a team in the coming years as a red-zone target.
“…God has blessed me to be 6-5, 230 pounds, so even when I can’t run anymore, I can be a red-zone threat,” Marshall said. “I know that’s worth something. Touchdowns are worth a lot of money. So maybe that’s my plan when I hit my mid-30s, is to come in in the red zone.”
