Brandon Marshall clarified his comments insinuating he would take a pay cut to remain with the Jets, reports Daniel Popper of the NY Daily News.
Following the Jets season finale, Marshall remarked that he would "play for free" and that his "bills were paid" when asked if he would consider restructuring his contract.
"I didn't say I'll take a pay cut," Marshall said Tuesday, referring back to his previous statement. "What I said was I love football so much that I would play football if my bills were paid. I wasn't talking about the New York Jets, or any other team for that matter. I was talking about my love for the game, and how I'm at a point in my career, too, where it's not about the money."
Marshall is owed $7.5 million in the final year of a three-year deal. However, none of that money is guaranteed and the Jets can free themselves of Marshall's contract by releasing him at no expense this offseason.
