    Buccaneers Release Doug Martin

    Tuesday, February 20, 2:15 PM

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released running back Doug Martin on Tuesday. This move was totally expected, as Martin failed to reach 450 yards for the second straight season after being an All-Pro in 2015. The team will save $6.75 million on the salary cap with the move. As a rookie, Martin rushed for 1,454 yards with 11 rushing touchdowns. In the last two years, Martin has averaged a weak 2.9 yards per carry on 282 totes. In his absence, Jacquizz Rodgers and Peyton Barber figure to split time in the backfield, but the Bucs will likely look to made an addition at running back. Martin may benefit from a chance of scenery in free agency, but he's unlikely to land a bell-cow role after struggling mightily the last two seasons.

    Doug Martin Biography

    Childhood and Highschool

    Doug Martin was born in Oakland, California on 1/13/1989. He attended St. Mary's High School in Stockton, California. He was a standout in high school, but he was widely regarded as being undersized. At 5'9'' and 223 lbs, he would prove to those who doubted him that he had the fight and determination to overcome his weaknesses. He only received 2 stars by Rivals.com, but nonetheless impressed Boise State enough to receive an offer. 


    While at Boise State, Martin ran for 3431 yards on 617 attempts. He also had 67 catches for 715 yards. He accumulated 43 rushing TDs and 4 receiving touchdowns. He had plenty of highlights in college and was a key member of the Broncos' backfield. In 2008, his freshman year, he played 10 games, but only carried the ball 24 times. In his sophomore year, in 2009, he ran for 765 yards on 129 attempts. The next year, 2010, he improved and ran for 1260 yards and 12 touchdowns on 201 attempts. In 2011, his last year at Boise State, he ran for 1299 yards with an average of 4.9 yards per carry. He also rushed for 16 touchdowns. 

    NFL Draft

    Doug Martin was selected as the 31st pick by Tampa Bay in the 1st round of the 2012 NFL Draft. At the combine, his 40 time was 4.55 seconds and he recorded a vertical of 36 inches. He ran 6.79 seconds in the cone drill, 4.16 seconds in the 20 yard shuttle,  and 11.29 seconds in the 60 yard shuttle. He also had a broad jump of 120 inches and completed 28 reps on the bench press. 

    Rookie NFL Season (2012)

    Martin exploded onto the scene in his rookie year. He carried the ball 319 times for 1454 yards and 11 touchdowns. Nonetheless, he lost to Robert Griffin III in the NFL Rookie of the Year Award. Despite coming up short, he made it clear to the rest of the league that he was ready to cement himself as one of the best dual-threat running backs in the NFL. 

    2013 NFL Season  

    Doug Martin played 6 games in 2013 and had 127 attempts rushing. He ran for 456 yards, but only 1 touchdown. He also had 12 catches for 66 yards. 

    2014 NFL Season

    In 2014, Martin played in 11 games. He ran for 494 yards on 134 attempts and had 2 touchdowns. He caught 13 passes out of the backfield for 64 yards, but didn't have a receiving touchdown. 

    2015 NFL Season2

    In 2015, Martin ran for 1,402 yards on 288 carries. He hauled in 6 touchdowns and was selected for the 2016 Pro Bowl. Again, he delighted his fans, fantasy football league owners, and coaches. Martin signed his initial contract in 2012. The deal was for four years with a salary of almost $7 million. In 2015 alone, he made $1.3 million. 

    2016 NFL Season

    Doug Martin returned to the field with a purpose in 2016. Unfortunately, he injured his hamstring in week two and was forced to sit out 6 weeks. Despite his injury, he was able to amass 134 yards receiving on 14 catches. Throughout his career thus far, he has a total of 4,227 yards on 1,012 attempts and 23 touchdowns. He also has been a real asset catching the ball out of the backfield. In his years in the NFL, he has 121 receptions, 1007 yards, and 2 touchdowns. While limited, he has served as a kick returner in his career. On his one return, he went for 40 yards. Due to his significance as a running back, the coaches haven't given him too many opportunities as the key returner. 

    Personal Life

    Martin is active on twitter @DougMartin22, but while he has several fan pages, he doesn't appear to have an instagram page. It's also not known if he's currently dating anyone.
