The New York Jets are reportedly releasing star wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

The Jets are in full off-load mode this offseason as the organization plans to release yet another veteran star. The team recently released longtime center Nick Mangold, and now it looks like Brandon Marshall is going to be next.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news. Schefter cited a source close to Brandon Marshall who said "Really appreciate Jets for giving him the opportunity and they did offer him an extension."

Marshall had a down year in 2016, but mainly due to injury. The Pittsburgh native has racked up incredible numbers throughout his 11-year career. In his 11 years, Marshall has reeled in 941 receptions, over 12,000 receiving yards, and 82 touchdowns.

Marshall has played for four teams in his career, and it looks as though he is headed for No. 5.

The Jets also released star cornerback Darrelle Revis a few days ago, due to contract concerns, among other things.

Marshall has had troubles with drops throughout his career, but should provide a solid option for the team that picks him up. Marshall reportedly requested the release, citing concerns about the offensive scheme run by the Jets. He'll find a team, and quickly.
