The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will try to unload running back Doug Martin after the season and wide receiver Vincent Jackson could also be moved according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
It is no secret that the Buccaneers were listening to trade offers for Martin and Jackson at the deadline but never player was moved.
Jackson’s deal is quite reasonable as he is set to make just over $9 million next season but this year the Buccaneers were said to be seeking a second round pick. They simply will not get that but should they lower their request they should have no problem getting a deal done.
Trading away Martin could net next to nothing.
Martin has been a liability as a runner and as a locker over the past two seasons. He is now behind both Bobby Rainey and Charles Sims on the depth chart.
After being drafted 31st overall in 2012, Martin figures to get the Buccaneers a late-round pick at best in return.
On 58 attempts this season Martin has totaled just 166 rushing yards (2.9 average) while finding the endzone once. He has nine receptions for 54 yards.
