    Best news of the day. He came in last year in great shape and earned this contract… Now, if they can just get out to more leads at half this year, he may actually be the #1RB in the NFL

    Licht is off to a good start. Smart move signing Dougie!

    Good job.
    Glad Licht didn’t take the advice of some of the less than savvy fans out here who wanted to keep him at 4 to 5 million a year.
    Lamar Miller got over $6 million dollars and hasn’t produced like Doug.
    Hell, the Bucs should have given Martin retroactive combat pay for making him run in that nightmare called an offense run by Mark Arroyo in 2014.
    As a matter of fact, the whole offense should have gotten combat pay for having to play in whatever he was trying to do.

      Can you for once give the Glazers some credit for stroking the check?

    2. 3.2


      We’re also glad the glazers and licht didn’t take your advice and throw 10 million a year at him. Doug got exactly what most of us thought.

      1. 3.2.1


        You said no more than 5 mil a yr he got 7

    Glad they got this signing done ! Love the way martin runs through a small crack and gets 40 or even 50 yards .GO BUCS

  5. 5


    I think this was a great signing. If you really look at it, Doug’s career is younger than the years he’s been in the league since he had a couple of years where he missed most of the season due to injuries. So his legs are a little fresher than the average second contract player. Lets just hope he can stay healthy. I think it will happen with this OL they are building here. Definitely good things to come.

    Fans talked all week how slow Martin was and we played against bad tackling defenses, now they will wear his jersey again and pretend they never said one bad thing about him, typical how fickle Tampa Fans are

    1. 6.1


      You’re right about that jonnyg. But I doubt it’s only here in sunny Florida.

  7. 7


    Scu- I have lived in AZ past 16 yrs and lived in N Cali for 4 yrs, S Cali for 10 ys, and Fl for 8 yrs so I can say without a doubt that Florida Fans are the most fickle fans out there.
