It's been discussed before, but with word coming out now that he won't be back with the Dolphins, I think it deserves to be discussed again.  Would you want him here?  I say heck yes.  He was the #42 pick less than two years ago and is no dummy, going to Stanford and with Harvard educated parents.  I also think at 24 he should have something to prove with great upside after the whole ordeal and it would be like getting another 2nd round pick for what should be a great deal.  With Martin, Nicks, and maybe Tillman (or similar combo) in FA, GMan could truly feel like Scarface when he saw "The World Is Yours" going into the draft.

Then draft ASJ to put beside him and bring the nasty like Shockey did.  Fap, fap, fap.

twould be great to get a quality, young OL in before the draft...but only if we can get him for the vet minimum.

 

the hits just keep comin! can you believe this level of quality entertainment is free?

Tough call.

 

Yes, he's the victim in all of this, but how would teammates react to what he did?  Loads of trash talk goes on in a locker room.  How confident would you be in messing with Martin - as teammates normally do - given his history?

 

When this discussion came up before, Martin had an old friend/college teammate on the Panthers roster in Sione Fua.  Fua's gone now.

It doesnt even have to be the vet min. Just pay him what a rookie second rounder would be making. It will be relatively cheap. Martin would love playing for us Gross, Kalil, and the other guys are all nice and fun guys to be around.

Is he any good?

Nope. Bullying scandal aside, he wasn't very good. He got demoted once, and had been playing poorly on the other side also.

Probably better than Byron Bell.

 

I wouldn't call him great or elite, but 'good' isn't a reach.

 

His performance had declined some, but I'm sure he'd say that was due to the locker room issues.

 

(whether or not that's actually true, who can say?)

    • And yes, Smitty would've been absolutely hell on wheels in MMA.
    • Smitty would've tried to have literally killed Talib for that poo he pulled on Philly in the SB.
    • SSDs are mostly good if you need fast read or write speeds, eg watching or editing large files like raw audio or video.  They won't help much for standard stuff, and are one of the larger premium price points.  They are very nice in that they produce less heat and are more stable, no spinning discs, but you won't notice much of a performance gain for general use. The biggest bang for your buck is RAM.  I always get as much RAM as I can afford.  That will improve performance of everything on the system.  Upgrade CPU/cores next, for overall performance. Again, depending on what you're doing, the graphics card can make as big a difference as anything else.  That's mostly for gaming and video playing/editing, however.  But with more and more video streaming going on, the graphics card can be very helpful to improve performance and quality.
