Buccaneers release RB Doug Martin after six seasons

BUCCANEERS     Tampa Bay Bucs release RB Doug Martin     
       Martin has spent his entire six-year career with the Bucs

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Tuesday released Martin after a tumultuous 2017 season that began with a four-game suspension and featured a separate one-game benching for a violation of team rules. By cutting Martin, the Bucs will save $6.75 million on their salary cap for next season, and due to the structure of Martin's contract, will incur no dead money.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (22) breaks the tackle of Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett (97) in the first quarter at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. At least that's what Bucs general manager Jason Licht seems to believe.

Martin, a former first-round pick by the Buccaneers in the 2012 NFL Draft, has been as up and down as they come in terms of performance. He's only rushed for over 1,000 yards once more in the last five years, (1,402 in 2015), He's gone for under 500 yards in the other four years. As a result of his resurgence, Martin inked a five-year, $35.75 million extension with the Bucs. He's appeared in just 19 games and has ran for 827 yards. He had a promising season debut rushing for 74 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries against the New England Patriots, but that would prove to be a season-high. He racked up 1,402 rushing yards that season - second in the National Football League behind Adrian Peterson - while also catching 33 passes for 271 yards and scoring seven total touchdowns.

There will likely be plenty of suitors for the 29-year-old running back.
