The team selected Martin with the 31st overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft out of Bosie State. Last year, he proceeded to disappoint in Tampa Bay, with Peyton Barber passing him up on the depth chart. While he is a two-time Pro Bowler and an All-Pro in 2015, a lack of consistency has brought an end to his time in Tampa. Offensively, it is mostly about quarterback Jameis Winston throwing the ball deep downfield in head coach Dirk Koetter's Air Coryell offense.
That only proved to cost the Buccaneers more money, as Martin would ink a five-year deal worth over $35 million before the 2016 National Football League season. Martin rushed for 1,454 yards and 11 touchdowns as a rookie. He played in only 17 games in his next two years for Tampa and suddenly looked like he might be a bust.
Martin could latch on elsewhere, because he's just 29 years old and there's the siren song of those two huge seasons in his past.
