New Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall says he is not concerned about being suspended by the NFL for a nightclub incident over the weekend. The Bears acquired Marshall from Miami on Tuesday, sending two third-round draft picks to the Dolphins to obtain the No. 1 target they have been lacking for years.

Brandon Marshall Still The NFL’s Chris Brown
