The Bay Area native spent his first six seasons in the NFL with the Buccaneers and is averaging 772 rushing yards per season. Martin’s best year came in his rookie year, when he rushed for 1,454 yards and 11 rushing touchdowns. That year, he gashed a porous Raiders defense for 251 yards on the ground and four touchdowns, his only game played in the Oakland Coliseum.
The 29-year-old running back has struggled the last couple of years, averaging just 2.9 yards per carry on 282 carries over the two seasons.
