Dolphins OT James Marten has retired from football.
Marten was the 67th pick in the 2007 draft by the Cowboys, but found himself released prior to the 2008 season. He then bounced around practice squads before deciding to hang up the cleats. An alumnus of Boston College, Marten was one of Matt Ryan's college blockers along with fellow future NFLers Gosder Cherilus, Josh Beekman, Matt Tennant, and Anthony Castonzo.

Bears signed OT James Marten off their practice squad.

The former third-round pick from Boston College has been a disappointment in three NFL seasons. He probably won't play much in the final three games, and will have to impress during the offseason to make the 2010 roster.

Raiders claimed OL James Marten off waivers from the Cowboys.

A solid risk for a team that can use depth. Marten was an upside prospect coming out in 2007 and has the athleticism needed to play in Oakland's zone blocking scheme. He can't be a much worse bet than Mario Henderson.

Marten, the Cowboys' third-round pick in 2007, gets the boot to make room for wide receiver Mike Jefferson.

Cowboys signed third-round pick T James Marten to a four-year contract.

Marten signed following the Cowboys first practice. General Manager Jerry Jones said the delay will cost the young tackle as the club's rookie pool money has been spent. Marten will have a chance to play immediately with right tackle Marc Colombo recovering from recent arthroscopic knee surgery.

The Cowboys are using rookie James Marten strictly at right tackle.

This is somewhat surprising, as Marten was one of the top athletes in the draft among offensive linemen. The Boston College product could push Marc Colombo for a starting job in 2008. Doug Free is backing up on the left side.

Cowboys selected Boston College T James Marten with the No. 67 pick of the NFL draft.
