On Tuesday, Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall told The Afternoon Saloon on ESPN Radio Chicago (via SportsRadioInterviews.com) that he wants to retire as a member of the Bears.
“I continue to take care of my body, continue to do the right things on and off the field, I think I have a chance to retire as a Bear,” Marshallsaid. “I never want to make absolute statements, but I really can’t see past this organization for me. I love football, but at this level and at this point in my career, only certain situations, certain environments, make it fun.
“And this is an environment where — you guys saw last night — I felt like I was a 6-year-old kid out there and I want to continue to play that way and continue to have that joy in my heart. And I have it here, and hopefully we win here and I have that opportunity — like a lot of other guys — to end my career as a Bear. I’m excited.”
It’s great to see Marshall with a team that he fits in with. Hopefully he’ll continue to improve as a player and one day retire with the Bears.
