Report: Fins Sign RT Jonathan Martin
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Offensive tackle Jonathan Martin has come to an agreement with the Miami Dolphins on a four-year contract that will pay him just less than $5 million, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Martin is expected to man the right tackle position for the Dolphins going forward. Martin had spent the last several seasons as the blind side protector of Andrew Luck at Stanford. His switch to the right side will mean he will have to get stronger.
Martin’s main competition for the right tackle position will be Lydon Murtha, but given that Martin was a second-round pick, he has the inside track on the job.
The Dolphins have signed the following draft picks: Martin, receiver B.J. Cunningham, receiver Rishard Matthews, and defensive tackle Kheeston Randall. The Fins still have to sign: quarterback Ryan Tannehill, defensive end Olivier Vernon, tight end Michael Egnew, running back Lamar Miller, and linebacker Josh Kaddu.
