Only one day after being released by a pretender, Brandon Marshall could be headed to a contender.
According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, the recently released ex-Jets' receiver could be the target of the New England Patriots. It is believed there is mutual interest between the star wideout and the Super Bowl Champions.
Bill Belichick and Co. have been known to acquire veteran stars toward the end of their careers, so a move like this would make sense. Marshall is also looking for a ring, and the Pats would give him the best chance at a Super Bowl.
Although Marshall's 2016 was disastrous for him and the Jets, the 32-year-old still has something left to offer.
Marshall started all 16 games during the 2015 season, racking up 109 receptions for 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns. His ability near the boundary could be a strong complement to a group of Patriots pass-catchers who already dominate the middle of the field.
