Brandon Marshall Responds To Warren Sapp's Criticism: 'I Feel Sorry For Him'

In an attempt to respond to some recent, critical comments regarding his past behavior by Warren Sapp, Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall has posted a video on his Twitter feed ripping the former NFL player and current analyst for his public statements.

After Sapp criticized Marshall's past behavior on "The Dan Patrick Show" last Friday, including the usage of the term "retard" in his description, Marshall has taken to social media to craft a response. He notes that Sapp's off-field life has been less than perfect, so he's not exactly in a good position to publicly criticize others.

Speaking directly to the camera, Marshall explains how he was offended by Sapp's comments, calling them, "disappointing to hear from an NFL legend."

Football doesn't make us. There's more to life than just playing football, so make sure that you have a great balance in your life, surround yourself with good people, and guys like Warren Sapp I feel sorry for. Hopefully one day he will change his life, we'll pray for him, and instead of using words to destroy he may use words to uplift.

Over the past few months, the wide receiver has been working to rebuild a public image that was less than perfect after a few tumultuous seasons playing for the Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins. Sapp's criticism of Marshall was focused an a particular incident involving broadcaster Sterling Sharpe back in 2010.

Both of those teams ultimately decided to trade Marshall rather than deal with his antics, but he has generally been a model citizen since joining the Bears over the offseason. The wide receiver has also disclosed publicly that he's been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and anger management.

Over the first three games of the season, he has 16 catches for 214 yards and a touchdown.
