Former New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall and the New York Giants have agreed to a two-year contract worth $12 million Wednesday.
Marshall takes a pay cut in annual average to stay in East Rutherford and join a contender.
Coming off an injury-plagued season in Chicago, Marshall had a career year in 2016 at age 31 with the Jets.
ESPN.com noted that, by acquiring Brandon Marshall, the Giants now have a big-bodied playmaker that can take defensive pressure away from star WR Odell Beckham Jr.
Marshall, a six-time Pro Bowl selection, is considered one of the most prolific receivers in the game -- only 59 receptions shy of 1,000 .
