The Bucs have released RB Doug Martin. The move was fully expected after Martin bombed in 2017, averaging 2.9 yards per carry across 11 appearances. He was set to count $6.75 against the 2018 salary cap. Martin turned 29 in January and has had 2 straight seasons marred by injuries, suspension and poor production. He figures to settle for a 1-year, prove-it deal on the open market and certainly isn't a lock to be a 2018 fantasy factor. The Bucs will be in the mix for a RB or 2 in free agency and/or the draft.
The Raiders have released RB Doug Martin. If you needed confirmation that rookie Josh Jacobs will dominate early-down work in Oakland's backfield this season, here it is. The only question left is how much pass-catching work Jacobs will cede to RB Jalen Richard.
The Raiders have re-signed RB Doug Martin. The move is clearly a direct reaction to Isaiah Crowell's Achilles tear. Martin averaged a respectable 4.2 yards per carry on 172 totes for Oakland last year but ranked just 30th out of 47 RBs with 100+ carries in Pro Football Focus' Elusive Rating. Martin is veteran insurance in case rookie Josh Jacobs stumbles.
Raiders RB Doug Martin (knee) is active for today’s game against the Steelers. Newly signed RB C.J. Anderson is a healthy scratch. Martin should continue to serve as Oakland’s lead back but is just a RB3 vs. Pittsburgh’s tough run defense.
The Raiders expect RB Doug Martin (knee) to play through his questionable tag in today's game against the Steelers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Martin's not an attractive play, but he has at least averaged 57.7 rushing yards and 74.5 total yards over the past 6 weeks since taking over the job.
