Now, with faith in his QB fully restored, Brandon Marshall has challenged Antonio Brown. The Jets’ franchise-record setting receiver (most receiving yards (1,502) and receptions (109)) is calling Antonio Brown out with a challenge.
Brown outshined Marshall last year with 136 passes for 1,834 yards and 10 touchdowns. According to his instagram account, Marshall states “@ab I’ve never seen you back down from a challenge. #race4pinks“. Marshall is proposing a straight up trade. Winner gets the Rolls Royce, loser gets the Porsche. In the video above, Marshall seems to be saying the Porsche is just as valuable. Brown’s Rolls Royce has a unique Steelers-themed paint job:
Were Marshall to win, it’s likely he’d wipe that “new black and yellow, stars on stars, Galaxy inspired, Steelers-themed Rolls-Royce” paint job off in favor of Jets colors.
Antonio Brown has come back and responded to Marshall’s challenge. According to TMZ Sports:
“He don’t really wanna do that. He just wants some PR. He too old to be doing that. The RR is about $100k up [from the value of the Porsche]. If he really serious, CALL ME … I’ll gladly accept. Don’t Internet it. #BusinessIsBoomin”
