The New York Giants have released wide receiver Brandon Marshall, the team announced Thursday via Twitter.

Marshall’s time with the Giants comes to an end just one season into a two-year deal due to a failed physical, as per general manager Dave Gettleman.

The 34-year-old wideout played in only five games for the Giants in 2017 after suffering a season-ending ankle injury in October. Marshall failed to catch a touchdown in his short stint with Big Blue.

Drafted in the fourth round (119th overall) by the Denver Broncos in the 2006 NFL Draft, Marshall ranks 23rd on the NFL’s all-time receiving yards list (12,215) and is tied for 23rd in all-time receiving touchdowns with 82.
