  Bills | Ruvell Martin unlikely to return    Wed Jan 16, 12:44 PM

The Buffalo Bills are not expected to re-sign impending free-agent WR Ruvell Martin because they will look for an upgrade at wide receiver this offseason.

Footballguys view: Martin has been bouncing around the league ever since his days in NFL Europe. He's carved out quite a career for a guy who has been in the league since 2004 yet rarely sees the field.

  Bills | Week 4 Inactives    Sun Sep 30, 11:33 AM

The Buffalo Bills have declared OG Colin Brown, SS Delano Howell, LB Kirk Morrison, DL Kyle Moore, WR Ruvell Martin, OT Sam Young, QB Tarvaris Jackson inactive for Week 4.

Footballguys view: Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller are both active. Reports point to Jackson starting and Spiller playing a lesser role, so consider Jackson an RB2 this week and Spiller an upside flex play.

The Buffalo Bills placed CB Ron Brooks on Injured Reserve and signed WR Ruvell Martin Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Footballguys view: The former NFL Europe prospect comes back to the team after being released last week. He's got zero fantasy value and will only contribute as a special teams player.

  Bills | Four WRs cut    Fri Aug 31, 07:00 PM

The Buffalo Bills have released WRs Kamar Aiken, Derek Hagan, Ruvell Martin and Naaman Roosevelt.

Footballguys view: Hagan was considered a candidate for the team's #2 wide receiver job at one point, but he lost out to Donald Jones. Since Brad Smith, TJ Graham, and David Nelson all provide value in other ways, Hagan was doomed to be released when Jones won the job.

Updating a previous report, the Buffalo Bills re-signed WR Ruvell Martin to a one-year contract Wednesday, March 7, according to a league source. Financial terms of the deal are undisclosed.

Footballguys view: We remember when Martin was trying to make a name for himself in NFL Europe. He's a savvy veteran, but nothing more than a fifth-string WR and special teams player.

  Bills | Two roster moves    Tue Sep 13, 03:09 PM

The Buffalo Bills placed WR Marcus Easley (illness) on Injured Reserve Tuesday, Sept. 13, and re-signed WR Ruvell Martin in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Interesting move here by the Bills. This is the second season that Easley will be lost to Injured Reserve. He's a talented player but needs to stay on the field if he's ever going to amount to anything in the NFL.

  Seahawks | Two could fill in if Mike Williams does not go    Sat Dec 11, 11:06 AM

Seattle Seahawks WRs Ruvell Martin and Golden Tate likely would fill in at receiver if WR Mike X. Williams (foot, ankle) were not able to play in Week 14, reports Eric Williams, of The Tacoma News Tribune.

Footballguys view: Martin is a veteran who has bounced around the league for years since playing in NFL Europe. Tate is the electric rookie from Notre Dame who has good run after the catch ability. We think Tate could be featured more, but not enough to be much of a fantasy factor.
