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.
