Giants releasing Brandon Marshall

With a 2018 cap hit of $6.2 million, the Giants will save just over $5.1 million from releasing him. They gave him the designation of a "failed physical" to justify the release, but many speculate that the move was simply an opportunity to clear room to pursue Bryant in the Big Apple.

Kimberley Martin of the Washington Post reports that Marshall had agreed last month to take a pay cut for the 2018 season and was under the impression that he would return. Dallas did sign Allen Hurns to a two-year deal, but they lost both Bryant and Brice Butler in the offseason. While Marshall dreamed of winning a Super Bowl with the Giants before calling it a career at the end of his contract, the Giants imagined he'd serve as the flawless compliment to Odell Beckham Jr. Like Bryant, he might not find that his market is as active as he would have hoped. The six-time Pro Bowler had eight seasons of 1,000 yards or more in the last 10, including a 1,502-yard campaign in 2015 in which he led the league with 14 receiving touchdowns.

On Wednesday morning, a police team went to a station in the west to detain the four, but they were out on patrol. The man was taken to Chatham-Kent Police Service Headquarters and later released with a future court date in May.

Given his ongoing rehabilitation, it's not unlikely that Marshall could have trouble finding a team and decide to call it a career. So, it doesn't seem like he'll retire just yet. I'm not playing this game just to be a guy.

"The Giants got a helluva defense", Bryant said. "But I'm hopeful that the next couple years for me will be some fantastic years and some of my best work".
