The Bears somewhat surprisingly acquired WR Brandon Marshall from the Dolphins for two third-round picks today, immediately securing Marshall’s spot as the best wideout in team history.
Previously, Johnny Morris — who was a rookie in 1958 — was arguably the Bears’ best-ever wideout, but Marshall has already topped him just by being added to Chicago’s roster. Under previous GMs like Jerry Angelo who often treated the passing game as an afterthought, it would have been highly unlikely an elite receiver like Marshall would have wound up in a Bears uniform.
“Everyone’s acting like I just pulled a rabbit out of a hat,” said GM Phil Emery. “But really, I just went out there and found a great talent to put in a position of need. It’s not rocket science, despite what people here before me might have thought.”Suggested on Twitter by Canesfan05
