Dolphins Trade Jonathan Martin to 49ers
(SAN FRANCISCO) — The Jonathan Martin era in Miami has officially come to an end.
The Dolphins shipped the offensive tackle to the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday in exchange for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2015. According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Miami would only receive the pick if Martin is on San Francisco’s opening 53-man roster.
Martin will return to the Bay Area and reunite with head coach Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh coached at Stanford University when Martin played there.
The 24-year-old Martin was at the center of an investigation for the NFL last month that determined that former Dolphins guard Richie Incognito and two other offensive linemen engaged in persistent harassment of Martin, another offensive lineman, and an assistant trainer.
Martin left the Dolphins in late October and underwent counseling for emotional issues. Incognito was then suspended for the final eight games.
“We feel that this move is in the best interests of all parties involved,” Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey said. “We wish Jonathan well.”
The Dolphins selected Martin in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
