Some smallish fast guys are really tough...others aren't.
Martin is a 5th or 6th WR at best on a good team.
All of this IMO of course.
Of course...I never rule out improvement. **** happens. But as if right now, I don't think Martin makes this team. He shouldn't have made it last season. He is not a better player than some if the udfa we had/have.
I don't know if he's afraid of contact. He doesn't like to get hit while he's halfway in the air reaching for a ball. Not exactly what you want in a slot receiver, but not uncommon for a receiver at all.
& I'll agree the UDFAs are better when they have a season of going across the middle under their belts.
