Brandon Marshall is having a great season for the Chicago Bears, and he's climbing up the franchise record books.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall is making an impact on the field and as such, he's making an impact in the franchise record books. He became the first Bears receiver since 2002 to gather more than 1,000 receiving yards in a season, and he's moved into a tie for seventh place on the Bears' all-time list for single-season receptions, as noted by CSN Chicago.
Marshall is likely to move up the list, as Jeff Graham and Bobby Engram are right above him, with 82 and 88 receptions, respectively. Marshall is at 81 receptions, and still has five games to play before the regular season is up. Marty Booker has the record, with 100 receptions in 2001.
Booker, who was the last Bears player to get 1,000 receiving yards in a season, had 1,189 in 2002. Marshall is already at 1,017 and is closing in on that mark. Though he's only spent one season with the Bears, Marshall has longevity in the stats column, as 2012 marks his sixth-straight 1,000-yard season.
