hi-res-158753944_crop_northChicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been racking up 100-plus catch, 1,000-plus yard and 10-plus touchdown seasons in his two years with the Chicago Bears. He finished off 2013 with 100 catches for 1,295 yards and 12 touchdowns.

But even with that, Marshall says it isn't his best. According to the Pro Bowler, Marshall says he will have his "best year ever" regarding himself with quarterback Jay Cutler and the Bears franchise.

“I’m going to have my best year ever next year,” Marshall said on NFL Network, via the Chicago Tribune. “I’m going to be healthy; I have a healthy offseason, I don’t have to get any surgeries. I didn’t even have a chance to prepare last year; I hit my stride Week 9, Week 10 in the season. Now I get a whole offseason. I really believe it’s going to be my best year ever.”

It's unknown if Marshall means his best statistical season will be in 2014. More passing threats have emerged on the Bears offense, most notably Alshon Jeffery. There is also running back Matt Forte, who plays a large part in the passing game.

I don't expect Marshall to put up numbers like he did in 2012, when he had 118 catches for 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns. It won't be needed, since he's not Jay Cutler's only target anymore on offense like it was two seasons ago.

I'm sure Marshall won't mind. He's likely to have at least 90 catches for 1,000-plus yards, and another double-digit touchdown season.

Whatever helps the Bears win, Marshall probably won't mind the very slight dip in his stats next season.
