Martin (concussion) signed a contract with the Saints on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Martin's only action last season came during Week 4 against Jacksonville.

The 27-year-old has spent most of his NFL career in a depth role, but he found meaningful reps as a starter with the Jets in 2017, logging 43 total tackles and 1.5 sacks over 14 games.

The Jets exercised Martin's $1.8 million team option for 2018 on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
It was likely an easy decision for the Jets to bring back Martin after he finished the past season in a starting role at outside linebacker and acquitted himself well in that capacity. The 26-year-old achieved career highs across the board in 2017, finishing with 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks and one pass breakup.
