Tillman: ‘I’m sure Jay is ecstatic’ about Marshall trade

Brandon Marshall will join some familiar faces in Chicago, and history suggests he’ll be right at home playing with former Denver teammate Jay Cutler under the direction of quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates.

Bears CB Charles Tillman, one of the ranking members of the team’s defense, told NFL Network on Tuesday the addition of Marshall makes Chicago a contender in the NFC North.

“I thought it was a good move on Coach (Lovie) Smith‘s part to trade for him,” Tillman said. “I really think the pieces are finally starting to fall together.”

Not only did the Bears finally land the big receiver Cutler has pined for, it cost them just two third-round draft picks to acquire a player with whom the quarterback already has experienced success.

“I’m sure Jay is ecstatic right now,” Tillman added. “He’s got Brandon (Marshall), he’s got Jeremy Bates, so it’s starting to look like Denver again. I’m sure he’s thrilled.”
