Will wide receiver Brandon Marshall finally be the one to break over 1,000 receiving yards for the New York Jets this upcoming season? One would have to look back to 2007 for the last time a Jets’ receiver had a 1,000+ yard season. That’s right, the last player to do that was Jerricho Cotchery with 1,130 yards and quarterback Chad Pennington under center running the Jets’ offense. Could 2015 finally be the year that breaks this unfortunate streak?
Of course who exactly is under center for the Jets this upcoming season has a lot to do with Marshall delivering big time in his first season with the team. In seven out of nine seasons in his NFL career, Marshall surpassed the 1,000+ yard mark with the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins and even the Chicago Bears.

Considering that new offensive coordinator Chan Gailey is installing a spread offense bodes very well for Marshall to be the premiere No. 1 wide receiver on the Jets.
Marshall should be able to thrive in this new system regardless of who is throwing his way since it’s built for his size, speed and ability to haul in plenty of touchdowns.
With a ton of optimism in the air and a much-improved offense heading into 2015, Marshall is prime to really push the envelope for the Jets. Considering they have seemingly upgraded all major areas of weakness on the team, Marshall can prove to be an x-factor on offense since there is no telling how potent the Jets can be even against tough opponents with all the new talent on the team.
