SPORTS: BEARS TRADE BRANDON MARSHALL TO THE NEW YORK JETS
The Jets sent a fifth-round pick to the Bears in exchange for Marshall. The Bears were reportedly seeking a mid-round pick in return for Marshall, according to reports on Thursday. The move saves the Bears considerable room under the salary cap. Marshall's $7.5 million salary becomes guaranteed on March 12, said to be a major consideration for the Bears in dealing him. His cap hit this season is $9.575 million. He's signed through 2017, and his cap numbers are similar through the life of his deal. The Jets have more than $50 million in cap space, but may still opt to rework the deal.
