The future of offensive lineman Jonathan Martin is still up in the air following his decision to leave the Miami Dolphins in the middle of the 2013-14 NFL season. Martin left the team because of bullying and harassment, but now he is ready to return to the league after getting mental issues taken care of.
According to the Palm Beach Post, Martin’s agent, Kenny Zuckerman, plans to meet with the Dolphins next weekend in Indianapolis during the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine.
“We’re going to meet with the Dolphins at the Combine and see what their plans are,” Zuckerman said. “Right now they have his property, they have his rights.”
Whether or not Martin will return to the Dolphins remains to be seen, but Zuckerman is very confident that his client will return to the field and play in the NFL again in 2014.
“He will be on the field in 2014,” Zuckerman said. “There’s no doubt. He wants to, he’s ready, he’s excited. He’ll be somewhere this season.”
To teams that have been connected to Martin are the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts, because of his familiarity with 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck from their time together in Stanford.
Wherever he lands, we hope that Martin can continue his career and put the trouble Dolphins past behind him.
