CHICAGO — The Bears acquired Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall from the Dolphins on Tuesday, the biggest move on the first day of free agency.
Chicago sent two third-round draft picks to Miami.
It's the first big move under new Bears general manager Phil Emery, who replaced the fired Jerry Angelo. It gives Jay Cutler the go-to receiver he sought since arriving from Denver three years ago and reunites him with one of his top Broncos targets.
Marshall had 81 catches for 1,214 yards and six scores last season and made the Pro Bowl for the third time.
The Bears also agreed to a one-year deal with quarterback Jason Campbell, who will back up Cutler. And special teams standout and linebacker Blake Costanzo said he received a two-year deal from Chicago.
