    As I was sitting at Golden Corral 2 hrs while letting my turkey & cranberries digest, I had the following idea.

    Trade JM. Indy & The Niners are the most obvious partners but there is 1 more..... The Eagles.

    Chip Kelly said he is collecting former P12 players i.e. M Barkley, Ertz, Foles, etc...

    My suggestion: Martin for James Casey (TE).

    p.s. It'd serve 'Joanna' right to get blasted by those Philly fans.

    I wouldn't trade a 20th round pick for Martin

    At this point, I think Martin is "persona non grata".

    Who in their right mind would want this potential lawsuit making pu$$y on their team? He sucks as a player to boot.
    No one will sign him.
    He is done in the NFL.
    Thanks again for wasting another high second round pick Jeff "the jack a$$" Ireland
    Just pondering the players would could have had instead of him gives me a headache.

    Would you trade for a guy that might not want to play football anymore?

    The Golden Corral rocks,,,,there is one near my parent's house that I sometimes chow down at. I would trade Martin for pretty much anything at this point, if there are any takers.

    I really doubt any team would give up a pick for him.

    Unfortunately, Martin has no trade value, zero.

    GMs won't trade for a player that is certain to get cut. Not even factoring in the majority of teams wouldn't want him due to him quitting on the Phins.

    I don't think he's going to play again.

    I would NOI bring that dude into my locker room.

    Some GM will take him, but the team won't accept him. Why would they?

    That's what I'm saying. All the talking heads on TV that were former players are all "Oh, well we never..."
    Yes they did. They are just defending themselves now, and I'm not mad at them for it, but they are
    not telling the truth. The facts, as I see them based on what information is present is that whatever
    RI did in the locker room was cosigned by the vast majority of his team mates.

    Martin pussed and broke ranks. Why would any other group of men accept him?

    I know if a new guy came to my shift, and he had broke weak, I sure as **** wouldn't trust him.

    Jim Harbaugh decided to throw out his opinion on Martin and pretty much painted him as a saint. I would publicly call him on it and request a trade. lets see how fast he backtracks.

    He's supporting his institution as a coach. You're right. He wouldn't take Martin...Or, he might sign/cut him quietly.

    I wouldn't be completely shocked to see some one grab him but I would be shocked if he ever started again or if we got a draft pick for him. Dude is a ***** and a crappy player as well. No value there.

    I'd try and force his hand PUBLICLY. After all he felt compelled to make a public statement regarding Martin. I would turn around and answer him publicly asking what he felt martin would be worth to the 9rs.

    I bet Belichek is just licking his chops, waiting for us to release him, so he can become his new "reclamation" project.

    There isn't a GM in the league that would trade a pile of dog**** for that worthless piece of crap.

    We couldn't give a team a draft pick to take Martin.

    certain players do things to lose all trade value. Incognito did it in St Louis and MArtin did it here

    Martin at either LT or RT for the Patriots would end Brady's career

    Why would any team's GM give away a draft pick for a player he knows is going to be cut at some point? It's not like Martin has shown himself to be such a talent that you'd be afraid someone else would snatch him up.

    What if neither get picked up (which is probably the most likely scenario)?

    Force his hand how? He's not obligated to do anything. No GM is going give up a pick for a guy about to get cut unless they see him as an upgrade over what they have already. This isn't a schoolyard, the NFL is a business.

    Sure you could. And almost every team in the league would take that deal.

    I've been wondering Martin's value as well. Unfortunately, I think a very low round draft pick (6th or 7th) might be about all the team could get. I think Martin might end up being a decent guard and it might be in the team's best interest to try to convince him to come back next year.

    IF Miami could get a bag of chips for Martin, I would be ecstatic. Martin is going to have trouble finding another team after Miami....Maybe San Fran, because of charity from former coach to former player.

    Let's face it after his mommy gets through suing the Dolphins and the rest of the NFL her little Johnny will never need to work another day again in his life which is what this is all about. Mommys little Johnny can then sit around his house and wet his pants every time he gets scared when he hears a ugly word and know he has enough money he can find some arm candy wife that will take care of him when his mommy is gone someday. So who are you kidding if you really believe J. Martin really wants to play in the NFL again, he says he does only because it helps his case in court but it is obvious he is going to blame the Dolphins for NFL career going down the drain. That boy is no dummy I keep telling everyone and AJ. Martin knew and wanted to walk away from the NFL the day he slammed his table tray down in the cafeteria and left the team. IMO there is a very, very good chance this entire episode was or org -restrated by both him and his mother beforehand.

    It will be interesting to see if Jim Harbaugh picks him up at the 49ers. Harbaugh knows JMart and also knows that he can play and had success with him at Stanford. He also had no problems with him in the locker room. In fact he was not fazed by a lots of intelligent players on his college team. I would not be surprised if San Francisco snapped up Martin for depth. After the Miami episode, it is highly unlikely that any harassment would be repeated.
    Most on here see Martin as untouchable for any team. However, if he is taking his antidepressants, gets physically much stronger and really wants to play in the NFL, I'd expect that some team will give him a chance on a roster, initially for depth as a backup and see how he goes. His biggest negative would be the media attention that would probably go with him. Manti Te'o has succeeded in overcoming the media circus, but Tim Tebow has not.
    If he doesn't really want to put the effort into improving his physical strength and doesn't display a passion to play the game, then his career is finished.
