Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall signed a three-year, $30 million contract extension on ABC's "The View" on May 19.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall signed a three-year contract extension on May 19. 

According to Larry Mayer of the Bears' official website, Marshall signed his deal on ABC's "The View": 

"During an appearnce on ABC's 'The View' Monday, Brandon Marshall announced that he has agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Bears through the 2017 season. 

"Marshall tweeted Monda that he and his wife, Michi, 'would like to thank the McCaskey's on our new deal that will retire us Bears.'

"During his appearance on 'The View,' Marshall pulled out his contract and signed it. He was on the show with his wife in conjunction with Mental Health Awareness Month and pledged to make a $1 million donation to the mental health community. 

"After being diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, Marshall created a foundation to raise awareness about mental illness and help those suffering gain access to the resources they need to recover. 

"The goals of the Brandon Marshall Foundation are to fight the stigma attached to mental illness, educate people so they know the facts about mental illness, advocate for public policy solutions, provide relief to those who are suffering and bridge the gap between patients, clinicians and the public." 

Marshall himself announced on his Twtter account on Monday that the extension is worth $30 million. 

"3 year 30 million dollar extension. 

"1,000,000 dollar pledge to the Mental Health Community...

"Finally Found Home. 

"Humbled by this opportunity to retire as a #Bear and continue the tradition set..."

The Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell added more details regarding Marshall's new deal and also spoke with Bears general manager Phil Emery on the matter in his May 19 article

"Marshall, 30, is under contract for $9.3 million for the 2014 season -- $9.1 million in base salary and a $200,000 workout bonus. So that positions him to earn $39.3 million from the Bears over the next four seasons. 

"Bears general manager Phil Emery did not indicate the extension was imminent during an interview earlier Monday on WSCR-AM 670. But he did indicate how he values Marshall's initiative in hosting teammates for workouts and fellowship in South Florida earlier this offseason.

"'He is healthy,' Emery said. 'He feels great. We have a really good relationship. He gets along very well with his teamamtes.'

"'Obviously the things he did during the offseason to show leadership and to help pull the team together, they mean a lot, they mean a lot to our other players. It just shows the quality of person he is.'"

CSN Chicago's Chris Boden weighed in on the Marshall extension. 

"He could've done the diva thing heading into his contract year. He's earned the chance at elite money, much more than the $9.3 million he'll get in 2014 to finish off his previous four-year deal worth $44 million. He settled for what amounts to an average of a $700,000 raise. 

"Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Mike Wallace, Dwayne Bowe, Vincent Jackson and Percy Harvin will have a higher annual average salary even after this extension puts Marshall at $10 million per year. 

"While the $23 million puts him in the Top 5 at his position in guaranteed money (which, in most eyes, matters more), his contract value now over the four years is just 14th right now among wide receivers. 

"Marshall's numbers would lead a bigger ego to hold out for more. He's had his ego/diva moments and troubles earlier in his career. Yes, he wants the ball. But Marshall's gotten to the point where he sees the big picture. 

 

 

"If you haven't already seen, he's a team player, hosting numerous fellow Bears through voluntary offseason workouts in Florida. Monday's signing was another peice of evidence he is all about the team." 

The 30-year-old Marshall, who has suited up for the Denver Broncos, Dolphins and Bears, is entering his ninth NFL season. He has amassed 9,050 receiving yards on 712 receptions and 57 touchdowns, per ESPN stats.
