Brandon Marshall says that his move to Chicago Bears last season changed his career and his life.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall believes that his move to the club at the start of last season has saved his career and changed his life off the field.

Marshall said that he was not happy at his previous franchise the Miami Dolphins and would certainly not have secured a new £17.8m, three-year contract extension.

"The transformation started in my life before I was traded," Marshall is quoted as saying by NFL.com. "I think it was career-saving.

"I don't think I'd be sitting in this position, talking about an extension. I probably wouldn't be having the success that I've had on the field. It wasn't right for me."

Marshall has played all 16 regular season games in both his years with the Bears.
