After spending the first three seasons of his career with the Houston Texans, Martin was traded from Houston to New England at the beginning of this season, before appearing in a 2015 regular season game with the Texans. Despite appearing in just nine regular season games this season with New England, Martin still set a career high in receptions and receiving yards, with 24 and 269, respectively.
Martin also handled punt and kickoff returns for the Patriots when Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola missed time. Martin’s 624 all-purpose yards were fifth overall on the Patriots, trailing LeGarrette Blount, Edelman, Amendola, and team leader Rob Gronkowski.
