I think it speaks volumes that a player so talented had the opportunity to break this mark. The Jets wide receiving corps had a field day against the New York Giants, with Brandon Marshall reeling in 12 catches for 131 yards and the game-tying touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Marshall now has 83 catches for 1,062 yards and 10 touchdowns on the season, and the 7-5 Jets in the thick of the playoff race. He also eclipsed the 1,000-yard plateau again on Sunday, becoming the first player in NFL history to hit that milestone with four different teams.

He acknowledged afterwards that his off-the-field antics are what allowed him to break this record.
“It’s been an interesting career so far,” Marshall said. “I usually wait ’til the end of the season to think about what I’ve accomplished. But I’ve had a lot of different quarterbacks, and I’m proud that I’ve been able to be productive with a lot of quarterbacks. In Denver, I was immature and didn’t understand everything about the game. In Miami, I fit in for a while, but they made the right decision trading me. Chicago, that was home for us. I feel like I should still be there. Sometimes I have bitterness about it. That’s the place we called home. We loved it. But I’ve been really happy here. And at this point, I realize football’s a platform for me to try to help bridge the gap for so many people on mental health issues. I know how important that part of my life is.”
As I mentioned before, talents such as Marshall usually don’t get to play for more than two teams, with Randy Moss and Terrell Owens being the only similar talents to play for four teams or more and still produce.
