This is SO HUGE. Another brilliant Baalke move. What does this do? It immediately creates depth at OT - so no more depending on Adam Snyder AAAAAAND provides additional depth if we can't re-sign Iupati to something reasonable.
We gotta give Martin a clean slate. It's tough enough making it in this league when you're mind is right. This guy had off the field issues that no doubt affected his preparation and play. He's still 2nd round pedigree and is worth taking a flier on IMO.

NFL Network speculation is a 7th rounder which could become a 6th based on number of snaps he plays.
Another smart move. Instead of spending late draft picks on guys you have never seen play in the NFL, Baalke is stockpiling young, talented guys coming from bad situations. He has NFL film on these players, which is why I love the moves. Between these moves and the draft picks spent on Lattimore and Tank, I think he keeps this team competing for a LONG time.
