Brandon Marshall: Trade from Miami to Chicago was “career-saving”

brandon marshallBears wide receiver Brandon Marshall told reporters during his Thursday press conference to announce his new contract that being traded from Miami to Chicago saved his career.

“The transformation started in my life before I was traded (to Chicago),” Marshall said, via NFL.com “I think it was career-saving. I don’t think I’d be sitting in this position, talking about an extension. I probably wouldn’t be having the success that I’ve had on the field (if I were still in Miami). It wasn’t right for me.”

The Dolphins traded Marshall to the Bears in 2011 in exchange for two third-round draft picks.

“It was life-saving and career-saving,” Marshall said of the trade.
