After a season in which he rushed for 1,402 yards, second most behind Vikings’ Adrian Peterson, and averaged 4.9 yards a carry, Bucs running back Doug Martin has been named to the Associated Press All-Pro team.
Martin joins James Wilder, who holds the Bucs single-season rushing record of 1,544 yards, as the franchise’s only running back honored. While Mike Alstott earned five AP All-Pro nods, each time was as a fullback.
Martin, who is headed to his second Pro Bowl in four years, is set to become a free agent this offseason. The Bucs have expressed interest in resigning the 26-year old, a move that would certainly fit the plan of keeping continuity on offense.

Congrats to Doug. Not sure what our new HC will do or how much our GM is willing to reward Doug for 2 out of 4 successful years when he is not injured. I say a three year 5 mil a year with two years guaranteed.
Glad the Bucs ignored PR’s opinion of # 22 and retained our All Pro.
