First-year Jets coach Todd Bowles insisted that Marshall’s comments weren’t a big deal, but he also encouraged the wide receiver “to be smarter moving forward … in terms of how he says things,” per NJ.com.
On Thursday, Marshall was again asked about his remarks. He didn’t back down, though he offered one clarification, via ESPN.com:
“It had nothing to do with the judge,” Marshall said, referring to U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman, who vacated Tom Brady‘s four-game suspension. “I was just saying what I thought was the opinion of a bunch of players. It had nothing to do with the case. It was just our approach.
“The only thing I will say about what whole deal is, I think we all know … whenever you talk about race, whenever you talk about religion and politics, it’s uncomfortable and it can be tough at times.”
