Bio

Signed by the Chargers in August 2013, Marshall became one of the team’s starting cornerbacks late in the season. Despite joining the team late, he was an effective performer on both defense and special teams, finishing the regular season third in tackles among the secondary and tied for third in passes defensed. He also tied for sixth on the team in special teams tackles before leading the squad in the playoffs. Marshall also made a couple of big plays in the postseason, recovering two fumbles and corralling an onside kick.

A former second-round pick of the Carolina Panthers in 2006, Marshall will play his ninth NFL season in 2014. He has an impressive statistical resume with more than 500 career tackles on defense, 18 interceptions, seven sacks, 67 passes defensed and 77 stops on special teams. Marshall has also recovered 10 fumbles during his career.

Marshall grew up in Los Angeles, where he was raised by a single mother, Cynthia Taylor. His father was incarcerated for much of Marshall’s youth and it was his mother who influenced him the most. Now a father of three, Marshall finds the most pleasure in spending time with his wife, Jasmine, and the couple’s three sons: twins Xavier and Isayah, and baby Richard, Jr. Richard and Jasmine met as students at Fresno State where he played football and she played on the Bulldogs’ women’s basketball team. The couple’s twins were born nearly three months premature while Marshall was playing for the Panthers and both weighed barely more than one pound at birth. Miraculously, doctors in Charlotte were able to nurse the boys to health and the twins will turn four before the 2014 season starts.

When his football-playing days come to an end, Marshall has aspirations of opening a group home for at-risk youth. His mom frequently accepted foster kids into the family’s home when Marshall was a child and she ended up adopting several of the foster kids. Homelessness is a cause that’s near-and-dear to Marshall and one of his main devotions is helping to support the Poverello House, a homeless shelter in Fresno. And when Marshall played for the Miami Dolphins in 2012, he organized an effort to provide holiday meals for more than 100 under-privileged families in the Miami area.

When he’s not spending time with his family, Marshall’s off-the-field interests include cars, bowling and watching real-life drama television shows, including the popular MTV-reality show, Teen Mom. A fan of classic cars, Marshall owns a restored ’73 Chevy Impala. It has a number of personal touches, including an airbrushed image of one of his former coaches from Locke High School who was murdered several years ago in Los Angeles.

Marshall’s brother, Alvin, also played football. He attends Nevada-Las Vegas and spent time as a running back and wide receiver for the Runnin’ Rebels.
