The Bears confirmed the extension on Twitter shortly after Marshall's television appearance, which was followed by a tweet announcing the financials of the deal.
Marshall also noted he's pledging $1 million to the "mental health community." Pretty awesome.
3 year 30 million dollar extension. 1,000,000 million dollar pledge to The Mental health Community.… http://t.co/t5HFNZKIYl— Machine Marshall (@BMarshall) May 19, 2014
There's been some confusion about whether it's a $30 million deal or a $40 million deal thanks to a tweet from the view.
Technically it's $30 million extension over the three years that will pay Marshall just under $40 million for the remaining life of his contract.
In two years since he's caught 218 passes for 2,803 yards and 23 touchdowns. He's also turned around his life off the field and become a real ambassador for mental health in the sporting community.
