Last night, wide receiver Brandon Marshall was released from the New York Jets. This came as no real shock as the Jets have been cutting veterans all week and Marshall came with a cap hit of $7.5 million. However, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, it wasn't all about the money because the Jets actually offered him an extension to stay, but he did not want to and requested for his release.
This morning, Josina Anderson of ESPN tweeted out that the reason Marshall asked for his release was because he "wants to compete for championship." This does not come as a big surprise given the fact that Marshall, a six time pro bowler in an 11 year career, has never been to the playoffs. That is right, never mind capturing a ring, he has never been on a team between the Broncos, Dolphins, Bears, and Jets that has captured a playoff berth. This is why I believe Marshall would be the next perfect Patriot.
Belichick loves to get players with experience and who are hungry for the title. Some examples include Chris Long, Brandon LaFell, Darrelle Revis, and Randy Moss. Now, Brandon Marshall is 32 years old, will be 33 on March 23rd, and is coming off a season with only three touchdowns and a catching percentage of 46.1%. The Jets did not have exactly the best quarterbacks, but a career worst of less than 50% is notable. However, Marshall stands at 6'4 230 pounds and has had eight 1,000 or more receiving yard seasons.
The Patriots offense is not tailored to throw often to the outside numbers, but Belichick took a chance on Michael Floyd at the end of the season who will become a free agent. The Floyd signing at least showed Belichick saw the need for an outside guy. The Patriots do have many priorities before Marshall, such as coming to a deal with their franchise cornerback Malcolm Butler and rebuilding their linebacker core a bit. However, if Marshall is to ignore the other multiple suitors that will be after him, take a pay cut and a smaller role, learn the playbook, then he could be a Patriot.
This Game Theory episode features Danny Leroux and Sam Vecenie talking about recent NBA injuries. First, they chat quickly about Kevin Durant, then pretty extensively about Kyle Lowry. Finally, they chat about Joel Embiid's injury and what it means for the Sixers going forward. Then, Sam brings on Reags from over at Barstool, where they chat about the difficulty of going on TV and the New York Knicks disaster. Then, we chat about how ridiculous it is to think any normal human could average two points per game in the NBA if guaranteed 15 minutes per game. Do they even think Terrell Owens, future Hall of Fame football player and former college basketball player, could do it? They then chat about the best gambling season of the year -- college basketball tournament season -- then finish up with our answers for what the greatest what-if is in the last 20 years of college basketball.

In this Game Theory podcast, Sam chats with Andy Bottoms of Assembly Call, who over the last five years has statistically been rated as the top bracketologist in his field. Within this discussion, they chat about No. 1 seeds, how weak the bubble is, the Wichita State conundrum, and then we break down all of the bubble. How safe should teams like VCU, Providence, Arkansas, Seton Hall, and Marquette feel? How can Wake Forest, Illinois, TCU, and Kansas State work their way into the field? They really get into the nitty gritty of teams' resumes, and how they're all just a jumbled mess right now. Finally, Sam makes Andy answer the question that matters above all others in college basketball this season: IS DUKE BACK?
