    Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was the center of plenty of controversy in the 2014 season, and few things caused more of a stir than his decision to be a weekly contributor to the show “Inside the NFL.”

    Some observers questioned whether Marshall’s appearances on the show affected his on-field play, but despite those concerns, Marshall has an open invitation to return to the program next season, according to a report by Ed Sherman of the Chicago Tribune

    Sherman is quick to point out that head coach John Fox could put the kibosh on a return engagement for Marshall, and Showtime Sports G.M. Stephen Espinoza said that there has been no communication on a second go-around.

    While Marshall’s appearances didn’t come on a day where the Bears are usually practicing or installing their gameplan for a given week, it still wouldn’t be much of a shock for Fox to exercise his authority as head coach by refusing to allow Marshall to participate.

    Marc Trestman was famous for allowing players to pursue extra-curricular activities (Lance Briggs’ excursion to California for his restaurant opening was a famous example), but Fox is likely going to look at this as an opportunity to show that there’s a new sheriff in town.
