The AFC East Trade Bonanza Continues As Brandon Marshall Is Reportedly Being Traded To The Jets
A nine-year veteran and five-time Pro Bowler, Marshall fought through nagging leg injuries most of last season, and finished the year on the injured reserve due to fractured ribs and a punctured lung, and produced just 721 yards receiving. Prior to last season, Marshall racked up 1,000 yards receiving in seven consecutive seasons.
First Lesean McCoy gets traded to the Bills, and now it looks Brandon Marshall is heading to another AFC East team, the Jets. Honestly, it’s about time the AFC East teams started making some moves. The Patriots have dominated and embarrassed them for over a decade, and they just continue to take it. I guess the Patriots winning the division AGAIN and winning the Super Bowl AGAIN finally knocked some sense into the front offices of the Bills and the Jets. Neither team has a quarterback, but getting a top 5 running back and a top 10 receiver is a good start. Rex Ryan must have gone through a rollercoaster of emotions this past week. First, he snags Lesean McCoy, then he watches his former team and new rival get a monster wide receiver. If nothing else, the AFC East seems like it will be a lot of fun to watch in 2015. Also, Alshon Jeffrey fantasy alert. The guy is going to dominate this year.
