Brandon Marshall Issues Crazy, Car-Inspired Challenge To Antonio Brown

Brandon Marshall is ready to put his wheels on the line.

Marshall issued a bold challenge to Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown via Instagram on Wednesday. The New York Jets wideout is so confident he’ll have more receiving yards than Brown this season that he’s willing to gamble his Porsche for Brown’s Rolls-Royce.

One has to think Marshall already caught wind of Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signing with the Jets before posting the video, otherwise he’d be banking on establishing a good enough rapport with Geno Smith, Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg. That’s a dangerous roll of the dice.

But even with Fitzpatrick at the helm, Marshall is taking a huge risk, assuming the bet is legitimate, albeit playful. The 32-year-old had 1,502 receiving yards in his first season with the Jets, and his career high is 1,508 with the Chicago Bears during the 2012 season. Brown, who’s four years younger, racked up 1,834 receiving yards last season, second only to Atlanta Falcons superstar Julio Jones’ 1,871.

But hey, may the best receiver win.

UPDATE (Thursday, 11:25 a.m. ET): Antonio Brown has responded.

TMZ Sports reached out to Brown regarding Brandon Marshall’s challenge, and the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver apparently couldn’t believe what he was hearing.

“He don’t really wanna do that. He just wants some PR,” Brown told TMZ Sports. “He too old to be doing that.”

Brown, who noted his Rolls-Royce is worth more than Marshall’s Porsche, reportedly also said he’d “gladly accept” the bet if Marshall is serious.
