Buccaneers running back Doug Martin is another name that could be moved prior to Tuesday’s trade deadline.
Martin has averaged just 2.9 yards per carry this season in four starts for a total of 139 yards. Still, teams will remember that the 25-year-old Martin had a monster rookie season two years ago racking up 1,926 yards and 12 touchdowns.
While WR Vincent Jackson’s name has been focus of trade speculation, the Buccaneer more likely to be dealt is RB Doug Martin. Teams calling.

The Buccaneers have Bobby Rainey and Charles Sims ready to take over their backfield. At 1-5 the Buccaneers are looking at trying to get a late round draft pick for Martin.
Vincent Jackson is another member of the Buccaneers whose name has been mentioned in trade talks.
