Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall revealed Monday that he has signed a new three year contract with the franchise.

Marshall made the announcement while appearing live on ABC show 'The View', with the extension reportedly worth $30 million.

Rather than keep it all to himself however, the five-time Pro Bowler showed his generous side as he took to Twitter to reveal that he would be donating $1 million of the 30 to a mental health charity:

"3 year 30 million dollar extension. 1,000,000 million dollar pledge to The Mental health Community," wrote Marshall.

Marshall has, in the past, spoken of his struggles with mental illness and clearly wanted to give something back to those who helped him through some difficult times. 

Marshall has been at Soldier Field since arriving from the Miami Dolphins in 2012 and finished last season with 12 touchdowns for 1,295 yards in his 16 games for Chicago.

The Bears faithful will be excited that the 30-year-old has chosen to stick around in the Windy City and will be looking forward to three more years of the Cutler-Marshall combination.
