Doug Martin’s time is up in Tampa Bay

Doug Martin lit up the NFL landscape as a rookie in 2012. He broke tackles, had monster games, and was easily the best rookie running back in the league. Since then, he’s been nothing but disappointment and injuries. And it’s finally time to call it like it is: he’s nothing more than a back-up in this league. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have essentially told Martin just that,...

Is Doug Martin still the future in Tampa Bay?

If the Buccaneers want to have a turnaround season next year, they are going to have to be able to count on their running game to support their offense. Going into last season, nobody thought that there would be any worries surrounding Tampa Bay’s backfield for years to come.  Doug Martin had just come off an incredible rookie season, where he amassed 1,926 total yards and 12...
