Bears WR Brandon Marshall signs 3-year contract extension


The Chicago Bears and Brandon Marshall agreed to a three-year contract extension that keeps the Pro Bowl receiver under contract with the team through the 2017 season, the team announced.

Marshall tweeted that the extension is worth $30 million. Marshall is under contract for $9.3 million for the 2014 season–$9.1 million in base salary and a $200,000 workout bonus. So that positions him to earn $39.3 million from the Bears over the next four seasons.

Marshall, 30, signed this extension Monday morning during an appearance on “The View,” a talk show on ABC.

In two seasons since joining the Bears via trade in 2012, Marshall has totaled 218 receptions, 2,803 receiving yards and 23 touchdowns.

Marshall pledged on Instagram to donate $1 million to “The Mental health Community.”
