Summary

Doug Martin returns to Tampa Bay with a new contract, one with the fourth-most guaranteed money at running back in the NFL. Martin is coming off a career year, logging a high-water mark of 4.9 yards-per-carry and staying healthy for all 16 games. Martin mired through injuries in 2013 and 2014 after his historically-strong rookie season in 2012. Martin has lost passing game appeal since the arrival of Charles Sims, a dominant pass-catcher dating back to his collegiate career. Martin was aided by a strong run-blocking offensive line in Tampa Bay in 2015, a top-10 unit by efficiency metrics at FootballOutsiders.com. Martin is a hard-charging back relying on top effort more than an innate physical talent. Entering his 27-year-old season, Martin will look to hang on to his prime production window like similar career arc backs Garrison Hearst and Thomas Jones before their late-20s steep decline.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin sitting Saturday (Sat Aug 20, 02:08 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ribs) will not play Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to bruised ribs. The decision is strictly precautionary and Martin is expected to play against the Cleveland Browns next week.

Our View: Charles Sims will get some extra run and UDFA Peyton Barber will get extra opportunities to impress his way into a roster spot behind Mike James as the fourth running back.
