Brandon Marshall to retire after New York Jets contract expires

Brandon Marshall of the New York Jets has stated in a recent tweet that the Jets will be the last team he plays for before he retires.

The wide receiver was on Twitter last night, answering fan questions when one fan asked him what team is he going to retire with?

The five-time Pro Bowler answered the fan's question with the following tweet.

Marshall has a three-year contract with the Jets worth $26 million. This includes $9 million guaranteed and around $8.6 million average salary. He joined the Jets from the Chicago Bears in March for only a $24.3 million contract, but this was later bumped up.

The wide receiver talks about retiring even if he is cut by the Jets. I don't think this will happen as I believe he can still provide the goods, despite only achieving 61 catches for 721 yards and eight touchdowns last season.

This was his worst season in the NFL since his rookie season with the Denver Broncos in the 2006 season.

Marshall was asked by another fan how many more seasons does he expect to play, which he replied with the following tweet.

The likelihood is that this will be the last three seasons we see of Marshall in the NFL. The Jets will be hoping they can give him the best send off possible by winning a Super Bowl in the next three season.

However, I don't think this is a possibility for the Jets. They haven't made the playoffs in the last four seasons and with teams around them in the AFC East constantly improving, I don't think things will be changing anytime in the near future.
