Retired Star Receiver Hints At NFL Comeback To Join Aaron Rodgers On Jets

Former NFL star wide receiver Brandon Marshall has recently made headlines by expressing his desire to make a comeback and join the New York Jets as a tight end.

Marshall, who last played in the league in 2018, sees an opportunity to contribute to the team's success, particularly with the potential addition of Aaron Rodgers as their quarterback.

Despite his extended absence from the sport, Marshall believes his size and skills could translate well to the tight end position, drawing inspiration from players like Travis Kelce.

During his time with the Jets in 2015, Marshall had a standout season, setting receiving records and leading the league in touchdowns. He never had the chance to experience the postseason with the team, and a return to the Jets would offer him a promising opportunity to finally make a playoff appearance.

While Marshall acknowledges the challenges of a comeback after such a long hiatus, he remains determined to make an impact, projecting around 45 catches, 20-30 snaps per game, and eight touchdowns for the season.

However, considering Marshall's age of 39 and the Jets' existing depth at the tight end position, it is uncertain whether his comeback aspirations will materialize.

The team already has a solid rotation of tight ends, including rookie Zack Kuntz, making it unlikely that they would pursue Marshall's return.

Nonetheless, Marshall's enthusiasm for rejoining the NFL and his desire to contribute to a potential Super Bowl run with the Jets have generated significant attention in the football community. Photo Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports
