Brandon Marshall had an illustrious 13-season NFL career that spanned 12 years, from 2006 to 2018. During his time in the league, he played for six different teams and worked with a total of 17 quarterbacks, most notably Jay Cutler during his time with the Denver Broncos and the Chicago Bears. In a recent interview, Marshall revealed that while he enjoyed playing with Cutler in 2012, he believes Cutler didn’t reach his full potential. Despite this sentiment, Marshall named Ryan Fitzpatrick as the best quarterback he played with, citing the 2015 season with the New York Jets where he co-led the NFL in receiving touchdowns.
Fitzpatrick’s leadership and play on the field made a lasting impression on Marshall and solidified him as one of the best quarterbacks Marshall played with. However, Cutler’s time with the Chicago Bears was marked by mixed success. Despite making it to the NFC Championship in the 2010 season, no Bears quarterback has ever thrown for 4,000 yards or 30 touchdown passes in a single season. Overall, Marshall’s experiences working with different quarterbacks and teams shaped his perspective on the league and his own performance as a wide receiver throughout his career.
