This past week, Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall had some interesting comments when asked about Miami Dolphins cornerback Byron Maxwell.
“I think the refs did an amazing job the last time we played them,” Marshall said according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini. “I think they threw three, four, five flags, so Saturday night I’ll be assisting the refs.”
He continued: “I’ll be carrying my own flag just in case he decides to conduct himself the same way. So I will help the refs out, but I thought they did a tremendous job the last time we played them.”
Although Marshall’s comments drew some chuckles from fans around the league, it turns out the 13th year pro wasn’t joking.
When the Jets and Dolphins met Saturday night at MetLife Stadium, No. 15 did indeed have a yellow flag on his side.
Take a look at Marshall’s interesting choice of accessary below.

Since joining New York, Marshall has faced Maxwell twice — once last season against the Eagles and earlier this year against Miami. In those two games, Marshall has recorded 15 catches for 155 yards and a touchdown.
It appears, however, that “Part III” may be short-lived. Maxwell went into the locker room in the first quarter of the Saturday night bout and is questionable to return with an ankle injury.
