Buccaneers re-sign RB Doug Martin to 5-yr $35.75 million deal

Mar 9, 2016 at 11:39 AM--


NFL Network is reporting that RB Doug Martin will be returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 2015 rushing leader runner-up (1,402 yards second only to Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson), has agreed to sign a 5-year, $35.75 million deal with Tampa Bay.

Yesterday, it was reported that the San Francisco 49ers were one of the teams interested in acquiring Martin. Martin grew up in the Bay Area, being born in Oakland and growing up in Stockton.

Martin, a first round selection out of Boise State in the 2012 NFL Draft, has 3,806 rushing yards for 20 rushing touchdowns over his career. He also has two receiving touchdowns on 106 receptions for 873 yards. He has been to the Pro Bowl twice (2012, 2015) and was named a First-team All-Pro last year.


The 49ers may still pursue another running back in free agency to compliment Carlos Hyde, who missed nine games last season with a broken foot. They may also look to the NFL Draft for another running back. After all, the 49ers have drafted a running back every year since 2009.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson spoke with 49ers reporters via a conference call on Wednesday and was asked about San Francisco quarterback Nick Mullens, who his team may face on Sunday night. Mullens started this past weekend in the place of an injured Jimmy Garoppolo. He finished the game 25-of-36 for 343 yards with a touchdown and a passer rating of 108.9. "A lot of respect for the backup guys," Pederson responded. "Sometimes it's a thankless job in the National Football League. I feel like San Francisco is blessed with probably two starters, quite frankly. "[Mullens] is a smart kid. He's a hard worker. He puts the time in. You can see that in the way he plays. He doesn't make mistakes. It's rare that you see a poor decision, a bad

Fred Warner is a rising NFL star. The San Francisco 49ers' third-year linebacker doesn't possess a plethora of NFL awards, Pro Bowls, or All-Star honors. Those things are probably coming, though. To his teammates, he's already there. Now, it's just time for the rest of the NFL to take notice. "He's an incredible linebacker," tight end George Kittle said in August. "He was, in my opinion, a Pro Bowl linebacker last year, and I think he's going to be better this year. Just being able to play against him every day makes me a better tight end. It's just really fun to have someone like that on your team." That's high praise from one of the NFL's best young offensive
