WR Brandon Marshall was expected to sign one of the most lucrative receiver contracts in league history following the trade that sent him from Denver to Miami.
And he did just that.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Marshall, who was playing under a one-year, $2.5 million contract, had $47.5 million tacked onto his deal over four more years.
That brings the grand total to an eye-popping five-year, $50 million contract.
$24 million of that is guaranteed.
The previous benchmark for receivers was Larry Fitzgerald's four-year, $40 million deal, which Marshall matched plus one year.
Like you said good trade for both teams. AFC East going to be fun to watch. Miami adds Marshall, Jets add Holmes(out first four games), and NE is still NE.
