Brandon Marshall’s NFL career spanned 13 seasons, with six different teams in twelve years, from 2006 to 2018. Throughout his time in the league, he played with a total of 17 different quarterbacks. In a recent interview, Marshall named Ryan Fitzpatrick as the best quarterback he played with, citing their successful season together on the New York Jets in 2015. However, Cutler was also a significant influence on Marshall’s career.
Cutler and Marshall played together for two seasons – one with the Denver Broncos and one with the Chicago Bears. While Cutler was not considered to be one of the best quarterbacks in the league during that time, Marshall believed that Cutler had not reached his full potential. Despite this sentiment, Cutler was able to help lead the team to an NFC Championship game in 2010. However, their tenure in Chicago ultimately fell short of achieving a Super Bowl appearance.
In contrast to his comments about Cutler, Marshall named Fitzpatrick as the best quarterback he played with due to his leadership and impressive play on the field during their season together on the Jets. During that season, Fitzpatrick co-led the NFL in receiving touchdowns and helped lead the team to a playoff berth.
Overall, Marshall’s experiences playing with different quarterbacks and teams throughout his career have shaped his perspective on football and impacted his own performance as a wide receiver.
