Brandon Marshall’s 13-year NFL career spanned six different teams and a total of 17 different quarterbacks. He played with Jay Cutler during his time with the Denver Broncos and the Chicago Bears, describing Cutler as the worst quarterback he played with due to his feeling that Cutler didn’t reach his full potential. However, Marshall also acknowledged that he enjoyed success with Cutler in 2012, catching a career-high 118 passes and totaling over 1,500 receiving yards.
In contrast to his comments about Cutler, Marshall named Ryan Fitzpatrick as the best quarterback he played with, citing their successful season together in 2015 with the New York Jets where they co-led the NFL in receiving touchdowns. Fitzpatrick’s leadership and play on the field made a lasting impression on Marshall and solidified him as one of the best quarterbacks he played with.
Cutler’s time with the Chicago Bears was marked by mixed success, including an appearance in the NFC Championship in the 2010 season. However, despite this accomplishment, no Bears quarterback has thrown for 4,000 yards or 30 touchdown passes in a single season.
Overall, Marshall’s career in the NFL was characterized by his experiences with different quarterbacks and teams, ultimately shaping his perspective on the league and his own performance as a wide receiver.
