Martin, a 6-2, 205-pound quarterback is an eight-year NFL veteran who signed with the Jets on August 26, 2003. The Weber State University product has played in 25 career games, making three starts, and has completed 199-of-310 passes for 2,141 yards, throwing for 14 touchdowns with 13 interceptions.
While this move might come as a surprise to many, anyone that watched practice this week, isn't shocked by this decision. Martin looked terrible. He threw a myriad of picks and displayed a very weak arm.
Martin wasn't with a team this off-season after being waived by the Rams, and his rust showed.
The Jets have decided that Brooks Bollinger is going to be their #2 quarterback, and feel Blackwell is good enough to handle the #3 job.
