Brandon Marshall signed a contract extension with the Chicago Bears and he did it in one of the most unorthodox ways imaginable: he signed during an appearance on that noted sports program “The View.”

Marshall said the extension is for $30 million over three years and he pledged a $1 million donation to “the mental health community” on Twitter. There was a bit of confusion at first when Marshall announced that the deal was for $40 million, but that’s because he has another year left on his current contract.

Marshall, 30, has long been open about his struggle with borderline personality disorder.
