Newest Giant Brandon Marshall on Beckham: ‘Eager to take pressure off him’ in 2017

Newest Giant Brandon Marshall on Beckham: ‘Eager to take pressure off him’ in 2017

Upon being released by the Jets, Brandon Marshall was free to sign with any team he wanted, and he landed one fast – same state, same stadium… easy transition.

The New York Giants swept in, announcing a deal on Wednesday along with a press conference.

In his introductory presser, Marshall touched on one of the main reasons he’s there – giving Odell Bekcham Jr. more opportunities…

“I’m excited to see him take it to another level,” Marshall said, per the New York Post.

“This kid isn’t even in his prime yet and he’s a monster, so I can’t wait to be a part of his journey, this maturation process that he’s on. … Being able to be a sounding board for him and talk to him about some of the great things he’s experienced and some of the challenging things he went through last year, I was just happy I could be there for him. I just love the guy to death.”
