Giants release receiver Brandon Marshall after veteran failed physical

Following the release of wide receiver Brandon Marshall earlier in the day, general manager Dave Gettleman took to the media and seemingly indicated that the team is interested in free agent pass catcher Dez Bryant. According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, the team released Marshall with a "failed physical designation". The 34-year-old's status with the team has been in question since undergoing ankle surgery in October. With a 2018 cap hit of $6.2 million, the Giants will save just over $5.1 million from releasing him. Marshall appeared in just five games.

Marshall has racked up at least 1,000 yards in eight of his 12 seasons and has over 12,000 yards for his career.

Marshall had been a constant presence at the Giants facility since his injury. I'm not playing this game just to be a guy. In 12 seasons with the Broncos, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, Jets, and Giants, he has 959 receptions for 12,215 yards and 82 touchdowns. "But I'm hopeful that the next couple years for me will be some incredible years and some of my best work".

The decision to cut the six-time Pro Bowl receiver comes as no surprise.

Marshall needs 41 receptions to reach 1,000 for his career, and needs 23 to tie Randy Moss for 15th-most catches in National Football League history.

Marshall told Ralph Vacchiano of SNY in December he was close to getting full clearance and planned to play for at least a couple more seasons.
