Jay Cutler is reuniting with his favorite wide receiver from the Denver Broncos.
The Chicago Bears on Tuesday made a deal with the Miami Dolphins, nabbing wide receiver Brandon Marshall in exchange for two unnamed third-round draft picks.
When the pair were together in Denver, they were one of the most prolific pass-catch tandems in the league. Cutler openly lobbied for the Bears to land Marshall but many experts thought it was a long-shot.
News of the deal was first reported by FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer on Twitter.
Marshall, at 6 feet, 4 inches and 230 pounds, is a three-time Pro Bowler and currently holds an NFL record, set Dec. 13, 2009 in Indianapolis, with 21 receptions in a game.
His 6,247 receiving yards are seventh in the NFL since he joined the league as a fourth round selection of the Broncos (119th overall) in the 2006 NFL Draft. His 494 receptions during that time are eighth in the NFL.
