Already, sponsors are deciding to leave Marshall in the dust so that their companies can cut ties with their controversial athletes. The first company to write this athlete off was the Air Academy Federal Credit Union. This business made no statement and silently dropped its endorsement of this NFL star.

The second company to cut Brandon Marshall was Century Link, a cable company, and this entity did send out a statement. They support and respect Marshall’s ability to protest and have free speech, but this company wants to strengthen the nation instead of dividing it. So, in hindsight, they side with the larger majority and wish Marshall well in all of his future endeavors.
