MIAMI – Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall added some interesting, albeit unusual, drama for Miami's upcoming Monday night matchup against the New York Jets, telling reporters Thursday his "goal is to get thrown out" of the game.
Marshall, who is no stranger to off-field issues, said he would flip the switch Monday night and become a "monster."
"If y'all think I'm still the beast or washed up, I consider myself a monster now," he said, according to NFL.com. "I don't want to be a beast anymore. I want to be a monster."
The 27-year-old wideout, who this summer was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, said his "goal is to get thrown out midway through the second quarter" of the Monday night game.
"I don't care what the commentators say, I'm just going to play football," Marshall said. "If it's throwing a ball 15 yards into the bleachers or punting the ball, I'm probably going to get kicked out in the second quarter."
Marshall said he was merely trying to fire up his team after an 0-4 start to the season.
The two-time Pro Bowler went on to say going after some of the Jets players was not out of the realm of possibility.
Marshall was acquired by Miami in April 2010 in a trade with Denver, and led the team in receiving yards last season with 1,014. He has 22 catches for 313 yards and one touchdown this season.
