Happy Marshall hopes he can retire a Bear
October, 3, 2012
Brandon Marshall is just four games into his career in Chicago, but the talented receiver has already decided that he wants to retire a Bear.
"I continue to take care of my body and continue to do the right things on and off the field, I think I have a chance to retire as a Bear," Marshall said Tuesday on "Carmen, Jurko & Harry" on ESPN 1000. "I never want to make absolute statements, but I really can't see past this organization for me. I love football, but at this level and at this point in my career only certain situations, certain environments make it fun."
Marshall had a lot of fun in the Bears' 34-18 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night, turning in his best game as a Bear with seven catches for 138 yards and a touchdown. It was the second 100-yard game of the season for Marshall.
"I felt like I was a 6-year-old kid out there [against the Cowboys], and I want to continue to play that way and continue to have that joy in my heart," Marshall said. "I have it here, and hopefully we win here and I have the opportunity like a lot of other guys to end my career as a Bear."
