The NY Jets could be a great landing spot for Doug Martin if he decides to leave Tampa. Jets are down a featured back, and Doug Martin could more than fill that need.
“The NY Jets will be in the market for a new running back heading into free agency and the 2016 NFL Draft. Doug Martin would be a nice addition to the team as he fits their needs well. The Jets are thin at running back going into the offseason, as they only have one signed to the roster. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may franchise tag Martin, and NFL.com estimates the franchise number for running backs will be $11.5M. According to spotrac.com, assuming a $154M salary cap number, the Buccaneers will have $46,767,574 in cap space. So it’s highly unlikely that he won’t be tagged. However, if he hits the market, the Jets have to consider to add him to the fold.” -Reported by Michael Pallas
