Brandon Marshall wants more to postseason than just Pro Bowl

USA TODAY Sports

Despite seven seasons in the NFL with three different teams, Brandon Marshall has not yet been on a team that has made the playoffs.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was named to his fourth Pro Bowl team this week, but if it were up to him, he'd prefer to have a different game to be preparing for when the time comes to represent the NFC wide receivers. Marshall told Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago that his main focus is on the upcoming postseason that the Bears hope to be a part of.

Marshall, 28, has played in seven NFL seasons with three different teams, but has not been a part of a team that has made the playoffs. He told Wright that taking part in the postseason would be much more fulfilling than another Pro Bowl game.

"It may be like a Super Bowl berth-type reaction for me. Hopefully, Sunday is a good day for us. We'll see. We've got to control what we can control, and that's beating Detroit. It would mean the world to me to get to the postseason. Yeah, I'm hungry for that."

To make the playoffs, the Bears would have to earn a victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday and the Green Bay Packers would have to beat the Minnesota Vikings.

Marshall is second in the NFL with 113 receptions for 1,466 yards and is tied for third in the league in touchdown receptions with 11.
