Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep
Standing 6 ft. 5 in. and weighing more than 230 pounds, Brandon Marshall looks more defensive end than wide receiver, which is exactly why he was nicknamed “The Beast” during his prolific 13-year NFL career. Another reason for this moniker is his monstrous stat line, which includes 970 receptions for 12,351 yards and 83 touchdowns. While Marshall began his career with the Denver Broncos, the Miami Dolphins traded for the wideout in 2010 following three consecutive 100+ reception seasons and two Pro Bowl selections. It was in Miami, however, that Marshall’s off the field and personal challenges drove him to seek help, ultimately leading to a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). In The Tank, Brandon recalls his difficulties in Miami and candidly shares a conversation with Ricky Williams that led him down the path of recovery. He openly and honestly evaluates his role as a teammate and leader, including an incident with former Dolphins first-round draft choice Vontae Davis. Brandon also discusses his philanthropic work in the mental health space, and two of his latest endeavors in House of Athlete and the I Am Athlete Podcast.
