Report: Dolphins Trade Brandon Marshall To Bears
The Miami Dolphins have agreed to trade wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears for third-round picks in 2012 and 2013, reports Jay Glazer of FOX Sports.
The three-time Pro Bowler will now be reunited with Jay Cutler, his quarterback on the Denver Broncos for three seasons between 2006 and '08.
Marshall is coming off of his best season with the Dolphins -- the 27-year-old wideout caught 81 passes for 1,214 yards and six touchdowns last year. But off-field issues led the Dolphins to trade Marshall despite 1,000-yard seasons in each of the last five years. Marshall has $6 million of his $9.3 million base salary for 2012 guaranteed. He will be under contract in Chicago in 2013 and 2014 as well, for $9.1 million a season.
