Marshall said he plans to play two more seasons, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Released by the Jets early in the offseason, Marshall signed a two-year, $12 million contract with the Giants on March 8. He celebrated his 33rd birthday a couple weeks later, making him one of the oldest projected starters at his position in the NFL. While coming off an inefficient, injury-plagued campaign in a miserable Jets offense, Marshall did look the part of a No. 1 wideout as recently as 2015, when he caught 109 of 174 targets for 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns. He won't get that kind of volume in an offense which also features Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard, but it is possible the 33-year-old will establish himself as Eli Manning's second-favorite option in what could be a high-powered passing attack. Though he plans to play out both seasons of his contract, Marshall could reevaluate after the season if he doesn't perform to his usual standards and/or the Giants win a Super Bowl. He's yet to make a playoff appearance in 11 NFL seasons.

Marshall signed a two-year, $12 million deal with the Giants Wednesday, Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Marshall would provide a massive target opposite Odell Beckham with second-year man Sterling Shepard often operating out of the slot. Marshall turns 33 in a couple weeks and is coming off a down year, but he dealt with poor quarterback play on the Jets. While Eli Manning is hardly a star, he's a significant upgrade over what the Jets trotted out last season.

Marshall was released by the Jets on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Jets continued their course in creating a younger roster with Marshall's release Thursday after releasing Nick Mangold and Darrelle Revis earlier in the offseason. According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, Marshall's release gives the team an additional $7.5 million in cap space heading into the new league year. Marshall had a disappointing 2016 campaign in New York, catching 59 of 128 targets for 788 yards and three touchdowns. That said, Marshall is just one year removed from a 1,502-yard season in which he had 14 scores. Despite being 33 when the season begins, Marshall still figures to garner interest from several clubs looking to add a big possession receiver and red zone threat. As it stands, New York's top three receivers are Eric Decker, Quincy Enunwa, and Robby Anderson; however, Marshall's release could lead to the front office looking to bolster the receiving corps in the draft.

Marshall (hip/shoulder) caught 59 passes (on 128 targets) for 788 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games played this season.

EDGE Analysis

Marshall's production dwarfed his 109/1,502/14 stat line from last season, contributing toward the Jets' significant regression. While it was always going to be difficult for the 32-year-old to match last year's output, the fact that Eric Decker (shoulder) played just three games this season should've benefited Marshall's fantasy stock. Although New York's quarterback play proved wildly unreliable, Marshall's seven drops didn't help the team's cause, and his 47.2 catch percentage ranked 143rd out of 144 qualifying players, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. After frustrations from both he and the Jets' season boiled over toward the end of the campaign, it'll be interesting to monitor Marshall's situation as he enters the final year of his contract this offseason.

Marshall (hip/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Meanwhile, ESPN's Rich Cimini indicates that it's his sense that Marshall will "try to play" Sunday, but that's not a lock to occur, with the 4-11 Jets out of playoff contention. Over his last three games, Marshall has mustered just six catches for 77 yards and has thus seen his fantasy lineup appeal taper off in the process.

Marshall (hip/shoulder) didn't practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Back-to-back missed sessions cloud Marshall's Week 17 status, with his level of practice participation Friday (if any) likely to be telling with regard to the wideout's chances of finishing up the 2016 season without missing a game.

Marshall (hip/shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Marshall hasn't missed a game during his two-season stint with the Jets, but he's banged up heading into Sunday's game against the Bills and his status will need to be monitored in advance of that contest. Over his last three outings, Marshall has combined for just six catches for 77 yards and has thus seen his fantasy lineup appeal dwindle of late.

Marshall left Saturday's game against the Patriots with a hip injury.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to his exit, Marshall caught two of his four targets for 28 yards. With the Jets being blown out by the Patriots in the contest, Marshall could well remain sidelined Saturday, as a precaution.

Marshall (shoulder, back) is is listed as active for Saturday's game against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Marshall will give it a go Saturday, as expected, though it's possible that he may not see his full allotment of snaps in the contest. In last week's loss to the Dolphins, the wideout was on the field for 73 of the Jets' 76 snaps on offense and hauled in just one of his 11 targets for 16 yards. While some sort of rebound Saturday remains plausible, Robby Anderson is presently the Jets' wideout to own, given his rapport with QB Bryce Petty.
