Brandon Marshall finally discussed his relationship with Jay Cutler with ESPN on Thursday, saying that “he was the only person in the Chicago Bears organization to hold Cutler accountable” and that it got so bad in the locker room last season that guys barely spoke.

“There is a culture in the league that you keep everything in-house,” said Marshall, who was traded by the Bears to the New York Jets this offseason.

“But for me last year, I felt like, when we are going on 10 years, nine, 10 years in the league — it’s time to get it. I felt like I was the only one in the organization that had the ‘huevos’ to hold [Cutler] accountable. It didn’t go the way I wanted it to go.”

Marshall and Cutler entered the league together in Denver, and had always had a good rapport with each other until last season.

Marshall didn’t hold back on Cutler either, saying that “he hasn’t spoken to Cutler” since being traded away from the Bears and that Cutler’s decline may have come from “taking too many hits.”
