Free agent S Sherrod Martin is visiting the Chiefs on Thursday.

Martin, 28, started 31-of-32 games for the Panthers from 2010-11, but he was demoted to backup duties behind Haruki Nakamura and Charles Godfrey last season. The former second-round pick shredded both his ACL and MCL in December, so the Chiefs are likely just checking in on him.

The Charlotte Observer expects the Panthers to let free agent S Sherrod Martin (ACL surgery) walk.

The former second-round pick is barely two months removed from wrecking his knee. Martin started 31 games between 2010-11, but came off the bench last season. He could have a hard time landing a contract before Week 1.

Panthers placed S Sherrod Martin (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Martin tore both his ACL and MCL during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. It's a brutal injury as his rookie contract is up after this season. The 2009 second-rounder had been seeing increased snaps ahead of Haruki Nakamura lately. Martin's 2012 season ends with 23 tackles and three pass breakups.

Panthers S Sherrod Martin left the stadium on crutches after sustaining a right knee injury in Sunday's loss at Kansas City.

"They're concerned about the knee, obviously," coach Ron Rivera said. "He'll get X-rays and MRIs and then we'll know more as far as that's concerned." Martin's snaps had increased of late while Haruki Nakamura's have been scaled back.

Sherrod Martin is running as the Panthers' starting free safety in OTAs.

Martin is "on alert" after the Panthers signed Haruki Nakamura and Reggie Smith, but still has the inside track to a starting job. It's possible Martin and Nakamura could end up splitting snaps, with Martin playing obvious passing downs and Nakamura obvious running downs.
Mon, Jun 4, 2012 11:13:00 AM

The Charlotte Observer confirms newly signed Haruki Nakamura will compete with FS Sherrod Martin for the starting job.

Martin struggled badly at times last season, missing tackles and giving up too many big plays. Although Martin may have the edge in coverage skills, Nakamura is better in run support.
Fri, Mar 16, 2012 05:54:00 PM

Panthers FS Sherrod Martin has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game with a "sickness".

Details are unknown, but Martin had five tackles (four solo) in the first half. The Panthers' No. 3 safety is usual nickel back Jordan Pugh.

The NFL has fined Panthers FS Sherrod Martin $40,000 for a Week 12 illegal hit on Browns TE Evan Moore.

The bloated fine stems from the fact that this is Martin's fourth transgression in the eyes of the league. Although Martin is a repeat offender for helmet-to-helmet hits, Moore didn't even have to leave the game. Considering Martin's current game check amounts to $23,235 before taxes, he had better rectify the way he tackles before the NFL bankrupts him.
Sat, Dec 4, 2010 11:38:00 AM

Panthers FS Sherrod Martin has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

The Panthers dodge a bullet, as they take on underwhelming Bears' QB Todd Collins in Week 5 followed by a Week 6 bye. Martin has excelled in his first year as a starter, and will undoubtedly return to the first-team after he recovers from his concussion.
Sat, Oct 9, 2010 11:12:00 AM

Panthers FS Sherrod Martin suffered a concussion in the team's Week 4 loss to New Orleans.

Martin has been terrific as a first-year starter, so his loss would be a big blow to a Carolina team that not only has been up and down in pass coverage, but has zero depth at virtually any position. Jordan Pugh replaced him.
Sun, Oct 3, 2010 10:27:00 PM

Panthers S Sherrod Martin left Sunday's game with an undisclosed injury. His return is questionable.

Jordan Pugh has come on in place of Martin.
Sun, Oct 3, 2010 02:42:00 PM

Sherrod Martin and Charles Godfrey will be the Panthers' starting safeties now that Chris Harris is gone.

Martin will step in at free safety, with Godfrey sliding over to strong. Though Godfrey wasn't spectacular last year and made few big plays, Martin's insertion is the big risk for a Panthers secondary that was among the NFL's best in '09. Martin, a second-round pick from D-IAA Troy, couldn't beat out late-round rookie Captain Munnerlyn for nickel back duties last season. Look for Carolina's pass defense to take a step back before it improves.
Wed, Apr 28, 2010 08:44:00 AM

Beat writer Darin Gantt believes rookie Sherrod Martin will keep the starting free safety job when Charles Godfrey returns from an ankle injury.

Gantt calls Martin a rangy safety who is not afraid to lower his shoulder, and he has improved the team's pass defense. Godfrey is expected to be a bigger factor on special teams when he returns.
Fri, Nov 20, 2009 09:21:00 AM

Panthers coach John Fox wouldn't say whether Charles Godfrey would get his starting free safety job back when he returns from an ankle injury.

Rookie Sherrod Martin stepped in for Godfrey last week and picked off two passes in his first NFL start. Martin, a second-round pick this season, was drafted to be a corner but was forced into action due to Godfrey's injury. Fox said Godfrey is "day-to-day" and he'll make a decision on the starter as we go.
