Free-agent wide receiver Brandon Marshall agreed to a one-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks, according to published reports.
Marshall posted a picture of himself on Instagram on Tuesday, sporting a Seahawks “12” shirt with FAN written on the back, saying “Always wanted to play in front of these fans.. . @seahawks”
A short time later, ESPN and NFL.com each reported the two sides had agreed to a deal. ESPN reported the deal is worth a maximum of $2 million if all incentives are hit.
The Seahawks haven’t yet confirmed the transaction.
The 34-year-old Marshall was released by the New York Giants on April 19 after playing in just five games due to an ankle injury. He caught 18 passes for 154 yards and no touchdowns.
The six-time Pro Bowler has caught 100 or more passes six times and topped 1,000 yards eight times in his 12-year career. He has totaled 10 or more touchdown receptions on four occasions, topped by hauling in 14 in 2015 as a member of the New York Jets.
Marshall has 959 career receptions for 12,215 yards and 82 touchdowns. He has played for the Denver Broncos (2006-09), Miami Dolphins (2010-11), Chicago Bears (2012-14), Jets (2015-16) and Giants (2017).
Marshall has never played in a postseason game.
Last season marked the first time Marshall didn’t record a touchdown catch.
The Seahawks were known to be interested in Marshall and worked him out earlier this month, but ESPN wrote earlier Tuesday that the team wasn’t going to sign Marshall.
