Patriots' Marcus Martin: Links up with New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots signed Martin to their active roster Monday, Mike Reiss of reports.

As starting center David Andrews continues to deal with a calf issue, the Patriots have decided to add veteran depth at the position. Martin has suited up twice for the Lions in 2020, but the team decided to part ways with the 27-year-old lineman Dec. 22. For his career, Martin has played in 28 career regular-season games while logging 24 starts.

Seahawks' Marcus Martin: Heading to Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (toe) signed a contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Brady Henderson of reports.

Martin spent the 2018 season on injured reserve with a toe injury -- which seems to still be an issue -- that he sustained in the preseason while playing for Dallas. It's unsure how much longer the USC product will need to recover, but it seems as though he'll have an opportunity to fight for a roster spot this offseason.

Cowboys' Marcus Martin: Recovering from toe injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (toe) spent the season on IR after tearing a ligament in his right big toe, Tyler Dragon of reports.

Martin suffered his injury during the Cowboys' first preseason game back in August and wasn't able to return during the season. It's unclear how long his recovery will take or if he'll miss any part of the team's offseason program. He'll set his sights on securing a role as a backup lineman with the team once he's back to full strength.

Cowboys' Marcus Martin: Headed to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (toe) was placed on injured reserve Monday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Martin hurt his toe in the preseason opener and likely needs surgery to address the matter, so moving him to IR was the logical step for the Cowboys. Damien Mama and Dustin Stanton both have a chance at filling Martin's role as a backup guard, as does Jacob Alsadek, who signed with Dallas after Martin's removal from the active roster.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (toe) is not expected to play this season, but is seeking a second opinion on his injured left toe before undergoing surgery, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Martin tore ligaments in his big toe during the Cowboys first preseason contest against the 49ers. The backup guard inked a one-year deal with the Cowboys this offseason. Damien Mama and Dustin Stanton are both candidates to fill Martin's spot as a depth option on Dallas' offensive line.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin suffered ligament damage in his right big toe during Thursday's preseason game against the 49ers and may need surgery, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

Cowboys' Marcus Martin: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin sat out Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed injury.

Martin didn't play at all in 2017, but he'd flashed first-team potential earlier in his career. He's been operating as a backup while with Dallas. While his injury is unclear, there has been no indication that it's serious or that it will hinder him for long. Look for Kadeem Edwards or Joe Looney to get some extra reps in any upcoming practices that Martin misses.

Marcus Martin: Expected to sign with Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is nearing a deal with the Cowboys, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Martin is the likely replacement for Joe Looney, who recently became a free agent. The 24-year-old guard will provide needed depth along the Cowboys' offensive line, and with Jonathan Cooper departing the team this offseason, Martin could have a chance to contend for the starting left guard position in 2018.

Browns' Marcus Martin: Claimed by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was claimed off waivers by the Browns on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Martin was waived by the 49ers on Wednesday after ending the 2016 season on injured reserve due to an ankle injury. Martin has 24 starts to his name over the first three years of his career, but, with the acquisition of J.C. Tretter, the Browns are likely set at center. Look for Martin to start at guard or be a top backup for the team in 2017.
