Martin doesn't have a great arm, but he's a good fit for the Jets offense.
"He doesn't have a lot of experience in this system," said Jets GM Terry Bradway, "but he has the physical skills (to be successful in the West Coast offense) because he is able to get it out of his hands quickly and he make makes quick decisions and that makes him a good fit."
While Martin could potentially emerge as the Jets #2 quarterback, right now the job belongs to rookie Brooks Bollinger. It is going to take Martin a while to get comfortable in the system, so Bollinger will definitely be the #2 quarterback for the first two or three games of the season.
Bollinger will not play against the Eagles because of a knee bruise, but should be fine for the opener.
