Giants' GM expresses interest in Dez Bryant after releasing Brandon Marshall

The New York Giants released receiver Brandon Marshall after just one season, GM Dave Gettleman announced on Thursday.

The 34-year-old UCF product finished the 2017 season on injured reserve after suffering an ankle injury in October that required surgery.

The Giants signed the veteran receiver to a two-year, $11-million deal last offseason.

With the draft coming and new general managers truly figuring out their cap situation and their roster, big-name players are getting released.

Marshall had reportedly agreed to take a pay cut in early March for the 2018 season, but was still eventually released. While Marshall dreamed of winning a Super Bowl with the Giants before calling it a career at the end of his contract, the Giants imagined he'd serve as the ideal compliment to Odell Beckham Jr. In 12 seasons with the Broncos, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, Jets, and Giants, he has 959 receptions for 12,215 yards and 82 touchdowns.

Here are three teams Marshall could find his way to next season. He caught 18 passes for 154 yards with no touchdowns in five appearances.

In December, Marshall said that before he retires, he wants to make his resume Hall of Fame worthy. I'm not playing this game just to be a guy.

Just previous year, the Panthers were a touchdown away from advancing to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs.
