One of the most athletic linebackers in history, Marshall was a key member of the Super Bowl XX champions. The Bears drafted him 11th overall in 1984, and he played in Chicago until '87, at which point he signed with the Washington Redskins and played there until 1992. He was a first-team All-Pro in '86 and '92 and a Pro Bowler in '86, '87 and '92. He also won a Super Bowl with the Redskins. He has fallen on tough times physically since leaving football.
