Brandon Marshall Trade: Bears Acquire Dolphins Wide Receiver For Draft Picks

The Chicago Bears have reported acquired wide receiver Brandon Marshall in exchange for two draft picks:

Marshall played for the Denver Broncos from 2006 through 2009, serving as now-Bears QB Jay Cutler's primary target in each of those season. Marshall has compiled 6247 receiving yards in his career, catching over 1000 yards in each of the last five years.

In 2010, the Denver Broncos traded Marshall to the Miami Dolphins for two second-round draft picks. Marshall then signed a four-year, $47.5 million extension, the last two years of which he will serve in Chicago now.
