If Martin was on the Ravens he would probably be scoring TD's consistently as well on returns.
True. A WR who in six years surpassed 30 receptions only once doesn't own anyone.
And we shouldn't look at the production he gave Baltimore this season, we should look at the production that he gave the Texans last year and how his replacements did:
JJ - 31 receptions and 1 TD
Posey, Jean and Martin - 26 receptions and 2 TD
JJ - No kickoff returns
JJ - 10.6 average, long of 79, 1 TD
Martin - 12.1 average, long of 71, no TD
After seeing that his actual production for THIS team was easily replaced, you look at how impactful his production was for his new team:
30 receptions made him the #5 receiver
9.2 yards per punt return was good for 15th in the NFL
30.7 yards per kickoff return was good for 1st in the NFL
He made his bones on kickoffs. Everything else he was pedestrian. To your point, it speaks more to the overall Ravens ST play than anything else.
