Brandon Marshall is a retired professional football player. He played wide receiver in the National Football League for 13 seasons before becoming a prominent sports broadcaster.
Brandon Tyrone Marshall is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but was raised in the southern United States. He attended high school at Lake Howell High School in Central Florida. He was an outstanding athlete and participated in track, basketball, and football. He was a jumper who lettered three times in track and won the state triple jump championship in his senior year. He played both offense and defense in football. He was honored as All-state and named Seminole County Utility Player of the Year.
He went on to attend Central Florida University, where he also played on both the offense and defense. He started 28 of the 44 games that he played in for the UCF Knights football team (21 at wide receiver and seven at safety). He saw limited playing time as a freshman but improved greatly as a sophomore. During his junior year, he played well on both sides of the ball, but his senior season was what catapulted him to the NFL. As a senior, he had 11 touchdowns and 1,195 yards as well as leading his team in tackles with a combined total of 51. He played in the Hawaii Bowl and was named game MVP.
Marshall was invited to the 2006 NFL Combine where he ran a 4.56-second, 40-yard dash and recorded a 37-inch vertical jump. He was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the fourth round of that year’s draft.
A preseason injury kept Marshall out of action for the first two weeks of his rookie season, but he played in the following 15 games in a limited role, however, he only started in one game. Repeated injuries also kept him out of nearly all of the next season’s training camp, but he would go on to have a stand-out season. He caught 102 of 170 targets for 1,325 yards and seven touchdowns.
Before the 2008 football season, Marshall fell and severely lacerated his forearm. He was suspended from one game and fined $52,353 for off-field issues. That season he recorded 1,265 yards and six touchdowns and was voted to the ProBowl. He underwent hip surgery in the offseason, once again missed much of the offseason training and camp with his team. During the season, Marshall played well, recording numbers similar to the previous season. He was again voted to the Pro Bowl.
He was traded by the Broncos to the Miami Dolphins for two second-round draft picks in the next two upcoming drafts. Once in Miami, Marshall agreed to a lucrative four-year contract. In the two years that he played for Miami, he started 30 games and scored nine touchdowns. He was voted to the Pro Bowl again in his second year in Miami, where he was named Pro Bowl MVP.
Before the 2012 season, Marshall was traded to the Chicago Bears for two third-round future draft picks. This reunited Marshall with his former teammate, one-time Broncos quarterback, Jay Cutler. Marshall had over 100 yards in his first game with the Bears. For the season, he recorded 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was voted to his fourth Pro Bowl and named First-team All-Pro. The next year, he improved to 12 touchdowns and 1,295 yards, earning an invitation to his fifth (and third consecutive) Pro Bowl. He had eight touchdowns and 721 yards in 13 games during the 2014 season. Before the start of the 2015 season, the Bears traded him to the New York Jets for a fifth-round draft pick.
Marshall had a stellar 2015 season, recording a career-high 14 touchdowns and over 1,500 yards. He was the NFL receiving touchdowns co-leader, named Second-team All-Pro, and was voted to his sixth and final Pro Bowl. He played one more year with the New York Jets and then played for one year with the New York Giants and one year with the Seattle Seahawks before focusing on his media career full time.
Marshall had been a football analyst during the last three years of his playing career. He was a co-host on Inside the NFL and later for First Things First. Since leaving the mainstream media, Marshall has found much success with his podcast I Am Athlete. The show focuses on topics related to athletes and pro sports and is hosted by celebrity athletes including Marshall and his wife, Michi Nogami.
In 2021, Brandon Marshall filed a trademark application for “LIFE OF ATHLETE” for podcasts related to entertainment and personal development as well as providing educational and entertainment services such as motivational speakers, downloadable videos, and audio recordings.
