Brandon Marshall Trade: The Bears Welcome Their Newest Receiver Via Twitter

It's been a little over two hours since it was first reported that the Chicago Bears had traded a pair of third round draft picks to the Miami Dolphins for wide receiver Brandon Marshall, but the new car smell hasn't even started to disappear yet.

It's a huge day for the Bears, quarterback Jay Cutler, and their fans, and it'll be enough to keep the football-crazed denizens of Chicago floating on Cloud 9 for the rest of the offseason, even if a few of the other moves the Bears apparently have in the works fall through. It's a big-time trade that instantly pumps life into the franchise after a disappointing end to last season.

A few of the Bears took to Twitter to welcome their newest teammate. Here's what star linebacker Lance Briggs had to say:

Running back Matt Forte also welcomed Marshall.

Cutler, who is fairly active on Twitter, hasn't weighted in yet, but his evil counterpart has in classic NSFW fashion.

Here's a few more relevant tweets that should excite Bears fans. From reporter Zach Zaidman:
