Things have been quiet for Brandon Marshall since he joined the Bears. But is there a sea of turmoil roiling below the clam surface?
His own past would say yes.
Marshall has been a headcase for some time. After some productive seasons in Denver, the trouble began.
He was suspended for three games—later reduced to one—for off-field incidents back in 2008. He was later suspended by the Broncos for sandbagging in practice.
His issues got him traded to the Dolphins, where his off-field problems continued. He eventually revealed that he was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder after an incident that sent him to the hospital with stab wounds.
By then it was too late for him in Miami, which traded the mercurial-but-talented receiver to Chicago for two third-round picks.
