Stop us if you've heard this before, but Brandon Marshall is once again commenting on his tumultuous time with the Bears.
The Jets wide receiver spoke with MMQB's Peter King and gave two reasons as to why he wanted out of Chicago following the 2014 season.
The first comes as no surprise, that his relationship with quarterback Jay Cutler had been worsening. Though he reached career-highs in receptions (118) and yards (1,508) in 2012, and touchdowns (12) in 2013, Marshall never synced up with the rest of the Bears offense in his three years.
But Marshall told King that general manager Ryan Pace was against the wide receiver working on Showtime's "Inside the NFL" during the season.
"When I sat down with (GM) Ryan Pace and coach John Fox, we met, and I asked, 'What do you guys think about this?' It was a big topic, "Marshall said. "And Ryan Pace said, "Well, we can do that in the offseason." So I was like, 'Well, what about half the season?' 'No.' 'What about once or twice?' 'No.' 'What about bye week?' 'No, you can do that in the offseason.
"Right then, I knew I wouldn't be a Bear anymore, because I think that the business of the NFL is growing every single day, and players are being told to stay in a box and just play football, and we're missing out on a lot of opportunities, not only to grow as men and businessman but to experience different things."
Marshall first joined the Inside the NFL cast in 2014, when Marc Trestman was head coach and Phil Emory was general manager. The Bears traded Marshall and a seventh-round pick to the Jets in March.
Marshall's comments come on the heels of Redskins cornerback Josh Norman agreeing to a deal with Fox to serve as an analyst during the year on gamedays.
Though it's still two years away, the Bears will play the Jets in Chicago in 2018. If Marshall is still with the Jets, there could be some serious fireworks going on between the two teams.
