Marshall: Marquess Wilson poised for big year
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bears receiver Brandon Marshall is expecting a big year out of new No. 3 receiver Marquess Wilson.

Wilson is expected to be Chicago's No. 3 receiver this year behind Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, and Marshall said in an interview with that Wilson has worked hard this offseason. The trio of wide receivers have trained together in South Florida to get ready for this year.

"I really want to talk about Marquess Wilson," Marshall said. "He came down and trained with us the whole offseason. We're really looking for him to do some big things. This guy, he's probably the steal of the draft last year. I'm going to say that. He came in, he put in the work, he looks like a body builder. Fast, strong, explosive. I'm looking forward to seeing him in OTAs."

Wilson, who is 6-foot-4, 184 pounds, was drafted in the seventh round out of Washington State last year. He only had two catches for 13 yards as a rookie, but he will now replace the departed Earl Bennett in three-receiver sets.

Marquess Wilson getting huge opportunity
by Larry Hartstein |

With the Bears releasing Earl Bennett, coach Marc Trestman said he wants to develop wideout Marquess Wilson like he did Alshon Jeffery a year ago. Wilson, a seventh-round pick last year out of Washington State, made two catches as a rookie.

“I think he showed that we can work with him and develop him,” Trestman told the Chicago Tribune. “He’s got the football intelligence that we’re looking for and the ability to be flexible within the offense. He was consistent. So we’ll see how it goes.

"We’re not anointing people at this point in time. He’s going to have a chance to compete and be a part of what we do after Alshon and Brandon (Marshall). We’ll see how it goes. We’ve got a long way to go but we like (Wilson) and we’re excited about him to develop him and work him.”

Wilson is a 6-4, 184-pounder who's only 21. He'll likely vie with Domenik Hixon for the No. 3 receiver job.
