NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall was a guest speaker at the NFL owner’s meetings on Monday, March 27. During his time talking, the athlete touched on many topics that included the importance of communication, NFL players as threads in their communities and how all athletes should have their voices heard. It can be a tough environment going straight from college to the pros, and the fact that it overwhelms many players means that some attention should be given to them to help them get settled. Marshall shared his own story about his assimilation to the NFL as well as stories from his youth when he was a troubled young man, and how he managed to overcome his difficulties.
The five-time Pro Bowl player got his start in football by playing for Central Florida University until he was picked up by the Denver Broncos during the 2006 NFL Draft. The Pennsylvania native also played for the Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears before joining the New York Jets in 2015. Even though he is fairly new to the football league he currently holds the record of most receptions in a game in the NFL, a total of 21. In 2011, Marshall was diagnosed with having borderline personality disorder and has become a major spokesperson for the illness and does everything he can to promote awareness. The 2011 Pro Bowl MVP is also only one of five players in the history of the NFL to catch 100 passes or more throughout three consecutive seasons.
Marshall recently appeared and spoke at the NFL owner’s meetings earlier this month and made sure to voice the perspective of the average football player. It was a great talk, and he managed to convey himself accurately and passionately.
