Jets WR Brandon Marshall listed JJ Watt and Deion Sanders among the players he believes could be the best of all time, but one player was notably absent from his list: Tom Brady.
Marshall told NJ Advanced Media during a charity event for his Project 375 foundation that Brady is "not the best player ever," adding that his idea of the best player would be "a guy that I can put at corner, safety, defensive end, a guy that I can put back on punt return, chase down kicks." He also mentioned Reggie White and Jerry Rice as possible contenders for the best player ever, but conceded that it "would probably be impossible [to say for sure]."
Marshall has faced Brady and the Patriots four times during his tenure in New York, with the Jets losing three of the matchups.
Marshall, a six-time Pro Bowler, scored only three touchdowns in 2016 while hauling in 59 catches for 788 yards.
