Brandon Marshall Signs his 3-Year Extension in Style

Brandon Marshall is anything but mediocre whether you’re chatting up his freakishly athletic moves on the football field, referencing one of his active social media accounts or loving on his bow-tie swagger. He is his own man.

On Monday, the star wide-out signed a $30-million extension with the Chicago Bears (one that I am quite pleased with) in some serious style.

Marshall on the ViewWhy sign your extension in your PJs at home? BMarsh decided to make it a public adventure by signing his extension next to his wifey and Jenny McCarthy on The View. The deal puts him under contract through 2017 and gives him $40 million over the next four years with $23 million guaranteed – not too shabby Mr. Marshall.

THEN to top things off Marshall pledged $1 million to the “Mental Health Community” immediately after accepting his extension. He had been on the daytime talk show discussing mental health before he made the surprise announcement about his extension. His personal experience with a mental health disorder has made him a sincere and extremely vocal advocate for the cause.

This extension is definitely worth the Bears’ dollars. Since signing with Chicago the ProBowler has caught 218 passes for 2,803 yards, 23 touchdowns and is the number one offensive target. Marshall has always been unbelievably talented, but his emotional stature made him a bit of a maturity risk. After his two years with the Bears, Marshall has now honed in those emotions and made himself a mentor for younger wide receivers such as Alshon Jeffery. He’s also been spending his time in Florida this off-season hosting some serious grind sessions for himself and teammates to improve strength, speed and stamina according to ESPN Chicago.

BMarsh has gotten his probowls – now it’s time for a Superbowl. #Beardown

Man Crush Monday: Brandon Marshall

brandon-marshall-bears

In honor of MNF and the Bears Cowboys NFC throwdown tonight my first Man Crush Monday is dedicated to the one and only Brandon Marshall. I don’t know if it’s his great pearly white smile, his ability to make amazing catches on the field, his size and strength to make dirty blocks or just his charisma, but I have crushed on BMarsh since he joined the Bears two seasons ago.

The Bears’ wide receiver is a reformed NFL bad-boy who has really cleaned up his image. You can find him posting pictures on Instagram of his favorite books, advocating for Mental Health Awareness (he suffers from borderline personality disorder), strutting around in adorable bow-ties and showing fellow NFLers how to truly rock the three piece suit.

Did I mention I really love the bow-ties?

BMarsh’s bromance with Jay Cutty is precious. Cutler threw Marshall his first touchdown pass (they were both then Denver Broncos) in December of 2006. Marshall would later be traded to the Dolphins in 2010. The fearsome duo were reunited when Marshall was traded to the Bears in March of 2012 and they have been going strong ever since.

Sorry to ruin the party single ladies, but Marshall is a married man. Michi Nogami-Campbell and Marshall tied the knot in April of 2010. She is beautiful and has her own sassy reputation to uphold. Just google it.
