Chicago Bears Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall signed a three-year, $30 million contract extension Monday.

The Bears have yet to officially announce the extension, but Marshall physically signed the contract Monday when he was a guest on “The View.” After signing the contract live on air, Marshall announced that he will be making a $1 million donation to the mental health community.

Marshall, who had one year left on his contract that will pay him $10 million this season, has been a prolific receiver during his two seasons in Chicago, catching 118 passes on 193 targets for 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2012, then catching 100 passes on 164 targets for 1,295 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.

He has reached the 1,000-yard plateau in seven straight seasons, which has included stints with the Denver Broncos, who drafted him out of Central Florida in the 2006 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins, and the Bears.
