Marshall a 'target' on and off the field

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall and his wife are hopeful that a police investigation of a February incident in New York City just prior to his trade to the Bears will be behind them, perhaps as early as this week.

Adam Schefter at ESPN first reported that sources say police are not believed to have found wrongdoing by either of the Marshalls and that the investigation could be wrapped up in the near future.

Until the New York Police Department comes out and says the investigation is concluded, theres really not much for me to say, Marshall said. What I will say is the same thing Ive said from day one: When youve been through things like Ive been through, you become a target.

After his trade to the Bears, Marshall spoke eloquently and directly about the need to work at avoiding situations in which he becomes that target.

Its so important to be aware of your environment and to put yourself in clean and healthy environments, Marshall said. Theres surveillance cameras all over the place and theres not many places where a 6-5, 230-pound guy can hide. So the truth will come out and when it does, Ill be sitting in a great place.
