Coming off an outstanding fourth season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Martin cashed in with a five-year, $35 million deal he signed in March.
It was a huge comeback season for Martin, who rushed for 1,402 yards (second in the NFL) and added 271 receiving yards. In his previous two seasons, he combined for 950 yards rushing in 17 games, hampered by injuries.
Martin lost fumbles five times last season after doing so only three times in his first three seasons. That's one of his key focuses here in training camp.
“I watched all those fumbles after last season,” Martin said. “It was more of me fighting for extra yards, not having my other arm on the ball, other hand on the ball. That will all be corrected. I don’t look to be fumbling that much this year. That will be corrected.”
First preseason game: at Philadelphia, 5 p.m. Thursday
MARCUS HENRY, C, SAINTS
An undrafted rookie free agent, Henry is listed third on the Saints’ depth chart behind veteran Max Unger and fellow rookie Jack Allen. CBS Sports cited the Saints’ recent history with late-round or undrafted free agents on the offensive line, this most recent crop “which featured two centers who normally would have been drafted in Jack Allen and Marcus Henry.”
First preseason game: at New England, 5:30 p.m. Thursday
KYLE WILSON, CB, SAINTS
Following five seasons with the New York Jets, the former first-round pick joined the Saints last season, starting four games and getting his first interception since 2012. He was placed on injured reserve in June with a torn labrum in his shoulder and will miss the season. He will be a free agent again after this season.
