Current Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall makes his first full-time television appearance this season on INSIDE THE NFL, and becomes the very first active player in history to serve as a regular analyst on the iconic weekly series.
Marshall, a relatively unknown fourth round draft pick in 2006, quickly found his way on to the field and was eventually named to five consecutive Pro Bowls. As a wide receiver, Marshall has earned the reputation as a physically gifted player with a specialty in breaking tackles and making big plays. He is one of only five players in NFL history to catch at least 100 passes in three consecutive seasons and has made the most receptions in any NFL game in history (21 receptions).
Marshall attended the University of Central Florida, where he made 112 receptions, 1,674 receiving yards, and 13 touchdowns during his collegiate career. In 2005, Marshall was selected to the All-C-USA second team.
During his NFL career, Marshall has played with the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, and, most recently, the Chicago Bears. Marshall is the first player in Bears history to record multiple 100-reception seasons. He has over 700 career receptions and over 9000 career receiving yards, earning him the nickname "The Beast."
