Bills re-signed WR Ruvell Martin.

Martin doesn't have a weekly offensive role. His biggest contribution is as the gunner on punt-team coverage.

Bills re-signed WR Ruvell Martin.

Martin, who turns 30 before the season, appeared in 14 games in 2011, hauling in seven passes for 82 yards. Though blessed with plus size (6'4/220), Martin is a fifth receiver type with only an outside chance at a roster spot. Pro Football Focus did credit Martin with ten special teams tackles last year.

Ruvell Martin caught four passes for 42 yards in the Week 17 loss to the Patriots.

With Stevie Johnson benched in the first quarter and Brad Smith (hamstring) out, the Bills were scraping the bottom of the barrel. Martin didn't catch a single pass until Week 15 of this season and ends with seven catches for 82 yards on the year. He's just a special teamer heading into free agency.

Bills re-signed WR Ruvell Martin.

Martin made it through final cuts only to be released last Tuesday. The former Packer and Seahawk will be primarily a special teamer as the Bills' fifth receiver.
Tue, Sep 13, 2011 02:19:00 PM

Bills released WR Ruvell Martin.

Martin was signed in late August to cover for injuries. The former Packer and Seahawk did well to stay on the roster into the first week of the season. He's on speed dial if the Bills need a receiver down the line.
Tue, Sep 6, 2011 05:14:00 PM

Bills signed WR Ruvell Martin, formerly of the Seahawks.

The Bills just lost both Donald Jones (head) and Naaman Roosevelt (ankle) for the preseason's duration. The 29-year-old Martin caught seven passes for 158 yards in Seattle last year. He's a fifth receiver-caliber player, which makes him a candidate for significant playing time with Buffalo.
Wed, Aug 24, 2011 01:45:00 PM

Seahawks declared CB Marcus Brown, LB Will Herring, G Paul Fanaika, T Breno Giacomini, T Will Robinson, G Stacy Andrews, WR Ruvell Martin and third QB J.P. Losman inactive for Week 16.

No surprises here. Martin was forced to start for the Seahawks a couple weeks ago, but with both Mike Williams and Ben Obomanu back and healthy, his spot on the active roster was no longer secure. Andrews is a healthy scratch for the second straight week.
Sun, Dec 26, 2010 02:57:00 PM

Ruvell Martin led the Seahawks with 73 yards and a touchdown on four receptions against the 49ers in Week 14.

Martin got the start opposite Deon Butler with Mike Williams and Ben Obomanu both out. The only big-bodied receiver active Sunday, Martin took advantage of busted coverage for an 11-yard TD in the first quarter. With Butler out for the year, he could end starting again unless Obomanu and Williams both return in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 12, 2010 07:41:00 PM

Seahawks re-signed WR Ruvell Martin.

Golden Tate (ankle) has already been ruled out for Week 10, and Brandon Stokley (calf) is listed as probable but was limited in practice throughout the week. Martin will likely play on special teams in addition to providing depth at wide receiver.
Sat, Nov 13, 2010 02:57:00 PM

Seahawks released WR Ruvell Martin.

With Matt Hasselbeck out for Week 9, Seattle had to promote QB Zac Robinson to the active roster to back up Charlie Whitehurst. Martin's release suggests that Big Mike Williams (bruised leg) is ready to play after returning to practice Friday.
Sat, Nov 6, 2010 05:06:00 PM

Seahawks re-signed WR Ruvell Martin.

Probably not the wide receiver with "R.M." initials Seattle fans had hoped for. Martin was in Seahawks training camp and knows the offense. His biggest impact will be on special teams, though, assuming he's among the active 45.
Wed, Nov 3, 2010 02:38:00 PM

Seahawks signed WR Ruvell Martin to a one-year contract.

Martin, 27, will try to make Seattle's roster on special teams. His inability to get on the field consistently in an extremely inexperienced Rams receiver corps last season indicates that Martin won't be an asset at wideout.
Mon, Mar 15, 2010 03:47:00 PM

Rams WR Ruvell Martin (hamstring) participated in a full practice Wednesday for the first time in three weeks.

Martin isn't exactly a game-changer, but the Rams need every healthy receiving body they can get. He'll play behind Donnie Avery, Keenan Burton and probably Danny Amendola.
Thu, Oct 29, 2009 09:54:00 AM

Rams have declared WR Ruvell Martin, FS Anthony Smith, SS James Butler, OG John Greco, QB Keith Null, WR Nate Jones, OG Roger Allen, and DL Victor Adeyanju inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Martin is out with a hamstring injury, and recently re-signed WR Tim Carter will likely see some action. Butler is out, once again, and Craig Dahl will get another start at safety.
