House of Patriots player robbed during AFC championship game


While the New England Patriots were playing in the AFC championship game, two masked men robbed the house of defensive back Derrick Martin.

The men stole several items of value according to Aurora police spokesman Frank Fania.

Several children and at-least one adult were at the house at the time of the robbery.

“We don’t know if he was specifically targeted or not,” Fania said. “There was nothing said during the robbery that would indicate that.”

The Patriots lost the game to Baltimore. Had they won Martin would have had a chance to win his third consecutive Super Bowl ring as he played on the Giants last season and the Packers in 2010.

Martin has played in the NFL for seven seasons.
