Brandon Marshall has officially set a target date for both the end of his NFL career and the beginning of another venture intended to “change the world.”
The veteran wide receiver intends to retire at the end of the two-year contract he signed to join the New York Giants this offseason, he explained Saturday at the NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo.
From there, his goal is to become a leader in the conversation about mental health issues.
“Two more years, get my Super Bowl, have a little bit more fun, and then I’m going to go change the world in the mental health space,” Marshall said, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.
The 33-year-old, who was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder in 2011, has long been an advocate for mental health awareness.
Marshall and his wife, Michi, co-founded an initiative called Project 375, which sets out to end the stigma surrounding mental illness and improve care for those in need.
The 2017 season will be Marshall’s 12th since he broke into the league as a fourth-round pick in 2006.
