The Jets might be intrigued with mercurial free-agent quarterback Jay Cutler, but Brandon Marshall would definitely not have been cool with it if he were still employed by Woody Johnson.
The Jets-turned-Giants wide receiver isn’t exactly best buddies with his former Bears teammate.
“I wouldn’t have been comfortable with it,” Marshall said Friday on the Rich Eisen Show about bringing Cutler aboard if he were still on the Jets.
Marshall and Cutler thrived at times together in Chicago, but it didn’t exactly end well when the receiver was traded to the Jets. Put it this way: The Marshalls and Cutlers won’t be going on any family vacations together anytime before the sun burns out. (Note: The sun isn’t expected to burn out for another five billion years, according to sources).
Marshall, however, doesn’t think that Cutler, who has been criticized for his seemingly aloof demeanor, will have much difficulty in the sometimes unforgiving New York media market.
“I think he has the perfect personality for it, ” said Marshall, who signed a two-year deal with the Giants this week. “He doesn’t care what the media thinks.”
There’s a faction on One Jets Drive that would welcome Cutler, who will turn 34 next month. The Jets frankly would be amenable to adding the veteran on the cheap. If he’s willing to play for a few million bucks, maybe Cutler and Marshall can live in the same neighborhood.
