Seattle Seahawks Sign WR Brandon Marshall

A star wide receiver has a new home. Brandon Marshall, who with one week left before the 2018 NFL draft was released by the New York Giants, has signed with a new team.

The former fourth-round pick lasted just one, injury-plagued, year with the Giants. However, he'll have a fresh state playing in front of the Seattle Seahawks faithful.

Marshall, 34, is three years removed from a 1,500 yard season with the New York Jets, so there were clear suitors for the talented wideout.

Seattle won out in the end. Here's what Marshall posted on Instagram.

Since entering the NFL in 2006, Marshall has been one of the most productive wide receivers. Drafted by the Denver Broncos in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL draft after dominating the competition at UCF, Marshall was a steal.

Marshall racked up at least 1,000 yards in eight of his 12 seasons and has over 12,000 yards for his career.

He immediately becomes one of the largest targets for Russell Wilson with Jimmy Graham gone.
