Panthers OT Jonathan Martin is retiring.
He's just 25. Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Martin needs back surgery, and he's opted to walk away instead of going under the knife. It further thins Carolina's alarmingly-weak tackle corps, but Martin was far from assured of a roster spot. The No. 42 overall pick of the 2012 draft by the Dolphins, Martin struggled mightily whenever he was on an NFL field. Mon, Jul 27, 2015 02:55:00 PM

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton said Jonathan Martin will "get a shot" to compete at left tackle.

Michael Oher is currently penciled in as the starting left tackle, so the Panthers are smartly considering their other options. Unfortunately for Cam Newton, Martin is that other option. Carolina surprisingly did not add a left tackle in the draft.

Panthers claimed OT Jonathan Martin off waivers from the 49ers.

The 42nd overall pick in the 2012 draft, Martin's name has long been bigger than his game. He's struggled mightily in stints with the Dolphins and 49ers, and generated negative publicity for "outing" Richie Incognito as a "bully" during the 2013 BullyGate Scandal in Miami. The Panthers are searching at tackle, claiming Martin and signing Michael Oher to a cheap two-year deal. They'll continue to add talent in the draft.

49ers waived OT Jonathan Martin.

The "Bullygate" victim lasted only one season in San Francisco. Reunited with his college coach Jim Harbaugh, Martin played 661 snaps across 15 appearances (nine starts), but was among the least-effective tackles in the league. With his mentor in Harbaugh now gone, the 49ers apparently didn't see the point in keeping Martin around. Martin is still only 26 (in August), but has never been an effective NFLer.

ESPN 49ers reporter Bill Williamson believes San Francisco would turn to OT Jonathan Martin if G Alex Boone's holdout lingers into the season.

It is highly unlikely this situation develops, but if it does Williamson sees Martin as a more likely replacement for Boone than career-backup G Joe Looney. Martin has never played guard and is well behind after losing 12 pounds and missing three weeks of practice fighting a bout with mononucleosis. The 49ers' best-case scenario would be for Boone to report to camp.

49ers OT Jonathan Martin missed more than three weeks of OTA practice due to a bout with mononucleosis.

After losing about 12 pounds due to the illness, Martin finally returned to the field on Monday. Still, missing any offseason work is not good for a player on the roster bubble whose desire to play football has been questioned. Martin, who was at the center of Miami's Bullygate scandal last year, did say that the 49ers' locker room is a "great environment" where players take care of each other.

Updating an earlier item, the 49ers acquired OT Jonathan Martin for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2015.

The condition is that Martin must make the 49ers' 53-man roster. It means the Dolphins will receive no compensation if Martin doesn't make the team. Martin is the favorite for swing-tackle duties, but is far from a lock to earn a spot.

49ers acquired OT Jonathan Martin from the Dolphins for a conditional draft pick.

The conditional pick is almost certainly a day-three selection. It's possible the Dolphins could end up with no compensation if Martin doesn't make the 49ers' 53-man roster, but that's just speculation. Martin had been on a leave of absence from the Dolphins since Week 9. A 2012 second-rounder, Martin hasn't looked like he can cut it at the NFL level, but was miscast as a left tackle last season. Reuniting with college coach Jim Harbaugh should be a boon for his confidence, and perhaps his game. He'll fight for swing-tackle duties in camp.

Andrew Luck said he would 100 percent be in favor of the Colts acquiring Dolphins OT Jonathan Martin.

"I’d say I love Jon, we had a great time at Stanford together, still stay in touch with him regularly and I think he’s a great man," Luck said. The Stanford connection is a deep one in Indianapolis. In addition to Luck, OC Pep Hamilton, WR Griff Whalen and TE Coby Fleener all were part of the Cardinal with Martin. It doesn't hurt that the Colts are in serious need of offensive line help.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross expects to meet with Jonathan Martin "soon."

Martin is universally considered done with the Dolphins, but Ross still wants to meet face-to-face before releasing or trading him. "I haven't heard what his feelings are," Ross said, somewhat incredibly. "I think I've read the report. I think he wants to talk to me as much as I'm prepared to listen. When you've dealt with something, it's nice to understand it a little bit more by hearing from the person directly." The meeting will be perfunctory. Martin is done in Miami.
Tue, Feb 25, 2014 09:59:00 PM

During a meeting with coach Joe Philbin, GM Dennis Hickey and CEO Dawn Apante, Jonathan Martin's representation conveyed to the Dolphins that Martin isn't comfortable returning to Miami.

Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Martin's agents told the Dolphins that a return to the team "wouldn't work." Martin still wants to play in 2014, but not in Miami. In the meeting at the Combine, Hickey reportedly did all the talking and expressed a heavy interest in retaining the third-year tackle, while Philbin was "staring daggers across the room." Philbin reportedly blames Martin's reps for the Martin-Richie Incognito fiasco reaching the level it has. The Dolphins are in the market for four starting offensive linemen. C Mike Pouncey is safe.

A source informed the Boston Globe that Jonathan Martin has a "zero percent chance" of ever playing for the Dolphins again.

The Globe's Ben Volin was a former Dolphins beat writer, so he has connections in Miami. Martin has burned too many bridges inside the Dolphins' locker room and has played a role in head trainer Kevin O'Neill and OL coach Jim Turner losing their jobs. Martin should be able to get a look-see from another club, though the aforementioned source doubts it. He's still under contract.

The Dolphins plan to huddle with Jonathan Martin's "camp" as soon as next week's Scouting Combine.

Per FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo, Martin "wants to play" football in 2014, and has yet to request a trade. The trade demand may occur in Indy, especially with OL coach Jim Turner still in the Dolphins' employ. The most likely landing spot at this point for Martin appears to be San Francisco, where coach Jim Harbaugh knows Martin well from Stanford and supported him in the Wells Report.
Fri, Feb 14, 2014 03:34:00 PM

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows believes findings in the Wells Report make San Francisco a possible landing spot for Jonathan Martin.

He'd be a backup to Joe Staley and Anthony Davis, but reuniting with college coach Jim Harbaugh could potentially get 24-year-old Martin's NFL career back on track. "(Harbaugh) told us that he had never doubted Martin's tenacity, work ethic and dedication to the game, and that he had never seen Martin exhibit problems with social adjustment," the Wells Report states. "Coach Harbaugh told us he believed that Martin likely could continue to have a successful career in the NFL." Martin's agent insists his client is now in a "great place," and the Wells Report can serve as a "tool for him to heal."

NFL special investigator Ted Wells released his Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin report, and concluded three Dolphins offensive linemen "engaged in a pattern of harassment" directed at Martin.

"The report concludes that ... Richie Incognito, John Jerry and Mike Pouncey, engaged in a pattern of harassment directed at not only Jonathan Martin, but also another young Dolphins offensive lineman and an assistant trainer," Wells stated. "The report finds that the assistant trainer repeatedly was the object of racial slurs and other racially derogatory language; that the other offensive lineman was subjected to homophobic name-calling and improper physical touching; and that Martin was taunted on a persistent basis with sexually explicit remarks and at times ridiculed with racial insults and other offensive comments." The "harassment" was deemed a "contributing factor" in Martin's decision to leave the team. The report paints a nasty picture for Incognito and the Dolphins, and seems to favor Martin. How coach Joe Philbin had no idea this was going on in his locker room, we have no clue.
