One of the reasons for his elation is exactly the one you’d probably expect. Marshall thinks Bennett’s addition gives the Bears passing game a much needed weapon to use in their quest for a trip to the postseason, but he also had a more personal reason to smile when Bennett came on board.

“It was tough sledding last year,” Marshall said, via ESPNChicago.com. “I think that’s why I had to have the [hip] surgery. I had 2-3 guys on me every single play, but bringing in big boy Martellus, I don’t think the league really knows how good he is. I didn’t know, and that was one of my great friends in the league. So I’m excited to see him, he’s going to be awesome this year for us.”
