Every soccer player in the NFL who plays as a linebacker or cornerback can testify to the raw, unforgiving power called Brandon Marshall. The wide receiver, who has branded his name into the game since his time at the University of Central Florida, joined the Seattle Seahawks in May 2018.
Marshall was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the 2006 NFL Draft and boasts one of the best tackle records. Former NFL cornerback veteran Nnamdi Asomugha describes Brandon as a punisher on the Gridiron. In December 2009, the Pittsburgh man also set an NFL record for the most receptions (21) in a single game.
In 2011, Marshall was diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder.
Brandon Marshall’s Early Life
Brandon Tyrone Marshall was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and grew up in Florida. He was born on March 23, 1984, and attended Lake Howell High School in Florida. Marshall was a letterman on his high school’s basketball and athletics team three times. He has excelled in both sports, received All-State Basketball Awards, and won the 3A Class Triple Jump Championship in Athletics.
Brandon transferred to the University of Central Florida where he played as a wide receiver and got better with every season. In his senior year, he was called up to the second All-C USA team.
College Career – Denver Broncos
The former UCF player was selected by the Denver Broncos in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. However, he suffered a posterior cruciate ligament injury in the preseason, so he only played 15 games in the regular season.
His second season with the Broncos began again with an injury – a pulled groin and later a pulled quadriceps femoris muscle – that kept him away from all games until the last days of training camp from May to July.
Brandon returned strong, however, and showed effective performances against players like the Minnesota Vikings and San Diego Chargers. He ended the season with 102 interceptions, 1325 receiver yards, and 7 touchdowns, the highest score for his team, and the best in his personal career.
The next season Brandon Marshall continued his injury pattern when he sustained a right forearm injury in a family altercation in March 2008. He needed surgery and was out of the game until he returned to training at the end of June. Marshall was fined $52,000 after a side-scoring game and a $52,000 fine after he was charged with drunk driving and domestic violence in August 2008.
After the suspension, Marshall returned to make his mark on the season, once again setting outstanding records: 104 interceptions and 1265 receiving yards. At the 2009 Pro Bowl, he was voted the best AFC Wide Receiver.
Brandon went under the knife again in March 2009 to fix a hip problem that had made him uncomfortable throughout the 2008 season. Throughout the season he scored a career-high of 200 receiver yards in a single game, was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week, and received the Pudding Pie Award for a game against the New York Giants on Thanksgiving Day.
Marshall was traded to the Miami Dolphins in the 2010 NFL draft and signed a four-year $47.5 million extension in the 2011 NFL draft. In 2010, his series of 100 or more receptions came to an end, although he still reached 1000 reception yards for his two seasons with the Dolphins.
Brandon Marshall signed with the Chicago Bears before the 2012 season and spent his seasons there. During his time in Chicago, he broke Marcus Robinson’s franchise record for most receiving yards, which was set in a single campaign. He was also the first player in the Bears’ history to record a season of 100 or more receptions and the first in the history of the NFL (along with Andre Johnson and Wes Welker) to record five seasons of 100 or more receptions.
He continued his good form in the 2015 season after he put the pen to paper for the New York Jets. Here he became the first NFL player ever to complete a 1,000-capacity reception season with four different teams. At the end of the 2015 season, he was also voted 25th in the NFL Top 100 Player of 2016.
From the Mets, he moved to the New York Giants and signed a two-year, $12 million contract. However, barely a month after starting his career with the Giants, he suffered an injury at the end of the season. Unfortunately, he was dismissed by the Giants on 9 April 2018.
On May 29, 2018, he was then picked up by the Seattle Seahawks under a one-year $2 million deal.
Who is Brandon Marshall’s Wife, Michi Nogami?
The Giants’ wide-receiver is involved in one of those relationships that can only be described as a “live-wire” romance. He is married to a woman named Michi Nogami-Campbell. They both attended the University of Central Florida, where they met. Brandon proposed to her on a trip to Hawaii in 2009. They were married in July 2010, and in 2015 they conceived a pair of twins.
In March 2009, Brandon was arrested for disorderly conduct after he was accused of having engaged in a physical fight with his then-fiancée, Nogami. However, the charges were dropped the next day and he was released on $300 bail.
Two years later, the couple was in the news again after Nogami stabbed him in the stomach and he had to spend two days in the hospital. Michi Nogami was charged with grievous bodily harm with a deadly weapon. However, she was released on a bail of 7500 dollars.
