FLORHAM PARK: Oh my, Brandon Marshall
With the New York Jets practicing special teams early on at Thursday's practice, the Jets receiver, along with cornerback Antonio Cromartie, made their way over to the jugs machine. After all, the two starters don't play on specials, so they've got to find some way to pass the time.
What originally started as a a simple pitch-and-catch, quickly turned into a one-handed contest. Marshall? Well, he stole the show. Watch the above slow-motion video as Marshall lifts his leg high in the air and catches the ball underneath it. It's quite impressive.
Marshall, 31, is expected to bring another dimension to the Jets offense this year and represents the team's first true No. 1 wideout in quite some time. Entering his 10th season, Marshall has pulled in 773 passes for 9,771 yards and 65 touchdowns in his career. Marshall has been voted to the Pro Bowl five times (was the game's MVP in 2011) and was first-team All-Pro in 2012. Paired with fellow wideout Eric Decker, the two have the potential to give the Jets one of the better receiving corps in the NFL.
While Cromartie wasn't able to match the above grab, he wasn't exactly a slouch, either. Watch the video below as the cornerback makes his own impressive one-hander. makes his own impressive one-hander.
