    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Named to Associated Press All-Pro Team

    Martin was named to the Associated Press All-Pro team, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The fourth-year pro capped off an outstanding 1,402-yard campaign by joining James Wilder as the only Bucs running backs to ever receive All-Pro honors. Following a remarkable 1,454-yard rookie season, Martin suffered through two lackluster and injury-plagued campaigns before enjoying a resurgent 2015. The soon-to-be 27-year-old will enter offseason contract negotiations with the Bucs sporting a considerable degree of leverage.

    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Expresses strong desire to return to Bucs next season

    Martin has stated he would "love" to re-sign with the Bucs this offseason, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. So much for playing his cards close to the vest ahead of contract negotiations. Martin and the Bucs have expressed a mutual desire to keep the fourth-year tailback in red and pewter in 2016 and beyond, following his second-best season as a pro."I would love to come back here," Martin said. "It's a young team and there were a lot of positive things that happened this year. I would love to be around when we blossom. The 26-year-old's 1,402 yards were second in the NFL, and his 4.9 yards per carry and season-long 84-yard run were both career bests. Given the public statements from both the team and Martin regarding his future, it's conceivable he may be willing to give the Bucs a slight discount in order re-sign with the team that drafted him. However, if he tests the free agent market come March, Martin figures to attract strong interest from multiple teams.

    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Tallies 108 yards total offense in season finale

    Martin gained 48 yards on 15 carries and also secured all seven of his targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Panthers. The fourth-year tailback badly scuffled on the ground, gaining 20 yards on his game-long tote and otherwise grinding out 28 yards on his other 14 carries. However, he did his best Charles Sims impersonation (although ironically, he still fell short of his teammate's reception total on the day), securing a season-high seven receptions for a 2015 high-water mark in receiving yardage (60). Martin finished the season with 1,402 yards-- his best haul on the ground since his stellar 2012 rookie season when he amassed 1,454--and the unrestricted free agent's retention will undoubtedly be a priority of the Bucs' front office heading into the offseason. Despite a lackluster final two weeks where he was only able to gain 97 yards on 32 carries (3.0 yards per carry), the 26-year-old ran decisively throughout the season, putting to rest any doubts as to whether his rookie campaign had been an anomaly.

    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Contract talks with Bucs

    Martin and the Buccaneers are talking about a contract extension before the running back hits the free agent market, the Tampa Tribune reports. "We've already talked a little bit," Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht said. "We will definitely be talking (more). We'd love to have Doug back." Martin was coming off two seasons marred by injury, when Tampa Bay opted not to pick up his fifth-year option back in May. Now, the fourth-year running back, who trails only Minnesota's Adrien Peterson in rushing yards, has all the leverage. The Bucs are reported to be seeking a two-year deal, but Martin will command a longer-term commitment in the market.

    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Leads NFL running backs with five fumbles in 2015

    Martin leads all running backs with five lost fumbles in 2015, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The fourth-year running back is otherwise enjoying an outstanding campaign, and retains an outside chance of catching Adrian Peterson for the NFL rushing crown. However, all five of his fumbles, a career-high figure, have led to points for the opposition (four touchdowns and one field goal). The issue was an unexpected one for Martin coming into the season, who despite his considerable struggles the last two campaigns, had still only coughed up the ball twice over 580 career carries. Even with his difficulties in holding on to the football, Martin can set a new career high in rushing yards with at 101 on Sunday versus the Panthers, and would shatter Tampa's franchise record of 1,544 if he could explode for at least 191.

    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Totals 55 yards of offense, fumbles twice in Week 16 loss

    Martin gained 49 yards on 17 carries and scored a rushing touchdown, while also securing one of three targets for seven yards in Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Bears. He also lost a pair of fumbles. There had been talk during the week about Tampa doing what it could to help Martin get closer to the NFL rushing title, and the matchup against a porous Bears run defense certainly seemed to be in the fourth-year tailback's favor. However, Chicago had different ideas, frustrating Martin all afternoon and separating him from the ball on two different occasions. The pair of fumbles brought Martin's 2015 total to five, tying him for second in the league with Melvin Gordon for that dubious feat. Despite the difficult afternoon, Martin figures to still be within striking distance of Adrian Peterson and the rushing crown in Week 17.

    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Named to second Pro Bowl on Tuesday

    Martin was named to his second career Pro Bowl on Tuesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers official site reports. It's Martin's first trip to Hawaii since an outstanding 2012 rookie campaign that saw him amass 1,454 yards rushing. The 26-year-old has a solid chance of surpassing that amount over the last two games of the current campaign, needing only 150 yards over that span to do so. Martin ranks second in the NFL in both rushing yards and yards from scrimmage behind Adrian Peterson, and retains an outside chance to break the Bucs' single-season rushing record of 1,544 yards set by James Wilder in 1984. He is also notably the only back in the NFL with at least 150 carries and an average north of 5.0 yards per carry, and leads the NFL with 13 runs of over 20 yards. The four-year pro has enjoyed a spectacular contract year, and his re-signing figures to be an utmost priority for Tampa this offseason.

    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Tallies 91 yards rushing in Week 15 loss

    Martin gained 91 yards on 18 carries and secured one of two targets for six yards in Thursday's 31-23 loss to the Rams. Martin looked outstanding with the ball on his hands over the first two and a half quarters, but was once again rendered obsolete as the Bucs fell significantly behind in the second half. The four-year pro ran powerfully and had several runs where he made outstanding cuts to gain additional yardage. Tampa appeared intent on attacking a Rams defense that struggles significantly against the run, running Martin for five straight plays to open their first drive, but had to abandon any semblance of a balanced offensive approach once they went down 28-6 in the third quarter. Martin and the Bucs will face the vulnerable Bears defense in Week 16.

    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Plays 28 snaps in Week 14 loss

    Martin was in on 28 snaps in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Saints, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The Bucs' starting tailback's playing time was relatively scarce in the second half, with Tampa behind by as much as two touchdowns at one point. The encouraging thing was that Martin continued to run very effectively when he did get the opportunity. With the offensively-challenged Rams on deck Thursday night, Martin should benefit from what should be a much more balanced offensive approach in Week 15.

    Buccaneers' Doug Martin: Totals 62 yards of offense in Week 14 loss

    Martin tallied 81 yards on 11 carries and secured one of his three targets for five yards in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Saints. Martin had his lowest amount of carries since a Week 9 loss to the Giants, when he also had 11 totes. As in that contest, the Bucs found themselves trailing in the second half, and passing-down back Charles Sims therefore received a solid allotment of playing time as well. As has been the case the majority of the season, Martin did look good with the ball in his hands, averaging 7.4 yards a pop and ripping off his third run of over 20 yards in the last four games. Martin is now averaging an outstanding 5.1 yards per carry while amassing 1,214 yards on the season, and will tangle with the feisty Rams defense in Tampa's Thursday road tilt in St. Louis.
