Top Kareem Martin News

  • Kareem Martin: Let go by Big Blue

    The Giants released Martin on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Martin appeared in just five regular-season contests in 2019 due to a knee injury, notching six tackles (three solo). His release frees up $4.8 million in 2020 cap space for the Giants while leaving $1.2 million in dead money. The 28-year-old will now look to latch on elsewhere in the league ahead of training camp.

  • Giants' Kareem Martin: Back from injured reserve

    Martin (knee) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    Martin sustained the knee injury during the season opener but returned to practice in late November and now rejoins the 53-man roster for Week 14. The 27-year-old should serve in a depth role at outside linebacker.

  • Giants' Kareem Martin: Designated for return

    The Giants have designated Martin (knee) to return from injured reserve, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    Martin returned to practice Wednesday, kicking off a 21-day window wherein the Giants can evaluate him for activation to the 53-man roster. If he's indeed cleared to retake the field, Martin will stand to play a key role in New York's linebacker corps.

  • Giants' Kareem Martin: Lands on IR

    The Giants placed Martin (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday.

    Martin was already expected to have an extended absence, and his placement on injured reserve guarantees he won't return until Week 10 at the earliest. The nature of his injury is still unclear. Tuzar Skipper and Oshane Ximines figure to see an uptick in their snap counts while Martin recovers.

  • Giants' Kareem Martin: Facing extended absence

    Coach Pat Shurmur said Martin (knee) will miss multiple weeks, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

    Martin left the season opener after playing just 10 snaps, and the team clearly isn't optimistic about Martin's health. He won't play in Sunday's game versus the Bills, and Markus Golden is expected to fill in as the starting outside linebacker.

  • Giants' Kareem Martin: Won't return Sunday

    Martin (knee) is out for the remainder of Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Martin made two tackles (one solo) before exiting the game. A mix of Markus Golden and Oshane Ximines will replace Martin at outside linebacker for the time being. Martin will look to make a quick recovery to be ready for Week 2's contest versus the Bills.

  • Giants' Kareem Martin: Leads team in tackles

    Martin recorded nine tackles (four solo) across 38 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

    Martin's nine tackles mark a new game-high for his first season in the Big Apple. He played a little over half of the defensive snaps Sunday but could see more reps in the last two contests with the Giants now officially eliminated from the playoff picture.

  • Giants' Kareem Martin: Signing with G-Men

    Martin is expected to sign with the Giants, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

    After playing sparingly during his first three seasons in the league, Martin seemed to turn a corner in 2017, ultimately finishing the season with 24 tackles, one sack and three pass breakups over 16 games -- including 10 starts. The 2014 third-rounder has the looks of an up-and-coming outside linebacker who, at the very least, will provide the Giants' linebacking corps with much-needed depth.

  • Cardinals' Kareem Martin: Starts 10 games in 2017

    Martin had 24 tackles (18 solo), one sack, one forced fumble and one interception in 16 games for the Cardinals in 2017.

    Martin started 10 games this season, in large part due to starter Markus Golden suffering a torn ACL in Week 4. The 25-year-old set a career high in tackles and will enter 2018 as an unrestricted free agent.

  • Cardinals' Kareem Martin: Starting at outside linebacker

    Martin will start at weak-side linebacker Sunday, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.

    With Markus Golden being placed on injured reserve Monday with a torn ACL, the opportunity for Martin to see extended snaps for the rest of the regular season is there. Martin recently made his regular-season debut after missing the first few games with a knee injury.
