Marshall spent three seasons of his illustrious career with the Bears and his contribution to Chicago in 2014 against the San Francisco 49ers is a thing to be remembered by many football fans.

The 49ers were leading the match 17-0 and the Pittsburgh native was moonlighted as a hero to continue the Bears’ legacy of going to a third straight NFC championship game by shocking fans with one of the great catches in the team’s history as well as an incredible one-hander in the end zone to finish with three touchdowns, ensuring a phenomenal 28-20 victory over San Francisco.

However, little did anyone know that the former football star was actually high during the match and he himself was the first one to reveal the news while appearing on Dr. Mike’s YouTube channel.

The 39-year-old veteran said he hurt his ankle a few days before the match and had to take pain-killer pills before the warm-up,

“What I did before I went up to the warm-up. I took like four pain pills, two toradols and I was high as hell on the field because I really wanted to play.”

The football prodigy was one of the most reliable receivers in the league during his prime, however, he was traded to the Miami Dolphins in 2010 due to his off-field issue, albeit he continued the legacy of recording over 1,000 yards receiving for the fourth year in a row and earned Pro Bowl along with MVP honors in the second season with the team.

He was once again traded to the Chicago Bears and recorded his then-career-high 12 touchdowns in the second season with the franchise, albeit he got plagued by serious injuries later and ended up in the New York Jets team.

Brandon played for the Jets from the 2015-16 season and led the NFL with 14 receiving touchdowns along with 1,502 receiving yards for the team in the 2015 season and inked the mark of becoming the first player in NFL history to gain over 1,000 receiving yards with 4 different teams.

The fourth-round pick out of UCF later played with the New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, and New Orleans Saints but failed to keep up his earlier form and retired eventually, however, he recently expressed willingness to head to the NFL as a tight end to enjoy a chance of playing with the Jets new QB Aaron Rodgers for a single season.
