Brandon Marshall, at age 33, has seen a few things in his day. The veteran receiver also knows a thing or two about being a young star in the NFL, and how one's career can take different turns on the road to success.
Marshall's Twitter response Friday night to a user asking what the Jets should do about second-year receiver Robby Anderson is a perfect example of that.
New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson is facing nine charges, including two felonies, after allegedly fleeing police at 105 mph and threatening to sexually assault the arresting officer's wife early Friday morning in South Florida, according to police records.
It is Anderson's second arrest in the past eight months.
Marshall helped train Anderson at his gym (Fit Speed) in Florida. He's been there whenever the 24-year-old needed him. Which is why Anderson's arrest Friday, his second in eight months, hit Marshall hard.
"He has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a Jets' all-time great, and a superstar in this league," Marshall told NJ Advance Media Friday afternoon. "Right now, he's hurting himself tremendously."
