Raiders re-sign RB Doug Martin

Recommended Posts

Outside of the fumbles, he averaged 4.2 on a terrible offense as the featured back. Now he’s the #2 on a better offense. Good signing.

I think we all knew this would happen after the news came out.  I like it.  Good backup for Jacobs, I didnt like Martin as the starter but I dont mind him coming in as a backup.

I imagine Lynch wanted more money and wouldnt want to be a backup.

Meh feed Jacobs all the carries. Hopefully, Warren has a good offseason and shows he can be count on so the Raiders can cut ties with Martin

Martin ran hard but uninspiring to me.

With the draft picks and assuming we gave Martin and Richard $4.5 combined we still have $25 million left.  If we spend nothing else this season we will have $56 million for next year minus draft picks so we would have roughly $43 with 54 players signed.  Not a bad spot to be in since we can get out of a lot of big contracts if the players do not perform.  If their play does justify their contracts then we have very few holes to fill.  Could easily clear $60+ million if needed but would have some holes to fill.

Just stop. Lynch sucks.

Yeah Lynch and Martin had very similar production. Lynch just has one insane run every couple games and people overrate him.

Probably because the press highlight them and bang on about them.

I’d take Marshawn over him but also am fine with Martin. They both were solid last season. Lynch lost a step but would be great to have in the RB room with Jacobs. Regardless, Martin is fine for our needs. If Warren III the reincarnated Moeaki can displace him then even better. 

 

@RaidersAreOne called this though.
