There have been some rumors that the Buccaneers were possibly looking to trade Doug Martin, by this Tuesday. I had even posted, an article on this possibility a few days ago. Good thing it was just a rumor. Many fans would have been disappointed in this move, however, plausible it may be. Doug Martin is in his contract year. And the unwillingness of the Buccaneers, to pick up his fifth-year option has many fans skeptical to whether or not he will be resigned next year.
“This year, as Martin works through the last year of his rookie contract, a trade is even less likely. Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, the Buccaneers won’t be trading Martin.” – Reported by Mike Florio
