The Bears signed veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall to a three-year contract extension on Monday which will keep the receiver in Chicago through the 2017 season.
The move was big news as Marshall was set to enter the final year of his deal. Now with Marshall locked up for the foreseeable future, the Bears have their offensive core of quarterback Jay Cutler, running back Matt Forte, tight end Martellus Bennett, and receivers Marshall and Alshon Jeffery locked up for the next few years. This ensures continuity on offense and room for growth in Marc Trestman’s explosive offense. If the Bears can get the defensive side of the football worked out, they will be legitimate Super Bowl contenders for some time to come.
