Marshall Not Backing Down, Wants More Involvement

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall understands he's going to turn heads when he speaks out, given his well-publicized struggles with mental illness.

He also wanted to make a few things clear. His illness is behind him. It's important to express himself and he wants the ball.

Marshall wasn't backing down on Tuesday after venting a bit about a lack of catches in Sunday's loss to New Orleans. He says he's "not a politician" while adding he's "paid to make plays."

The Bears are coming off back-to-back losses after a 3-0 start, with the winless New York Giants coming to Soldier Field on Thursday night, and Marshall clearly wants to be more involved after being neutralized by the Saints.
