  • Broncos' Jacob Martin: Headed to Mile High City

    The Jets traded Martin to Denver on Tuesday along with a 2024 fifth-round pick in exchange for 2024 fourth-round pick, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    After sending star edge-rusher Bradley Chubb to Miami at the trade deadline, the Broncos are scrambling to find fill-in reps at the position. Until Baron Browning and Randy Gregory return from injuries, Martin could actually see a significant role in Denver's defense right away.

  • Texans' Jacob Martin: Activated from COVID-19 list

    Martin was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

  • Texans' Jacob Martin: Tests positive for COVID-19

    The Texans placed Martin on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

    Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports that Martin, along with Maliek Collins and Derek Rivers, all tested positive for the virus. The 2018 sixth-round pick has played over 40 percent of the Texans' defensive snaps in every game this season, so his potential absence Week 16 against the Chargers would be a big loss.

  • Texans' Jacob Martin: Back from COVID-19 list

    The Texans activated Martin (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

    Martin tested positive prior to a Week 9 matchup against the Jaguars, but he's recovered and will return to team activities moving forward. The Texans' linebacker corps has gotten pretty banged up this year, including Brennan Scarlett (forearm) being placed on IR, so Martin could battle for a starting role moving forward.

  • Texans' Jacob Martin: Staying on COVID-19 list

    Coach Romeo Crennell said Monday that Martin (illness) will stay on the reserve/COVID-19 list for the Week 10 matchup against the Browns, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Martin tested positive last Wednesday and will miss at least two games as a result. Crennel did reveal that Whitney Mercilus and Dylan Cole, who were considered close contacts to Martin, are expected to return this week. Martin will aim to get back in action in Week 11 against the Patriots.

  • Texans' Jacob Martin: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Martin was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday after testing positive for the virus, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The Texans will work virtually Thursday as a result. Martin won't be available for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, but he could return Week 10 if he clears the league's COVID-19 protocols.

  • Texans' Jacob Martin: Records sack off edge

    Martin had two tackles and one sack in Thursday's 34-20 loss to the Chiefs.

    Martin came off the edge and got to Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes on the Chiefs' first drive, taking them out of field-goal range. During training camp, Texans defensive coordinator Anthony Weaver talked about a larger role for Martin, who recorded 3.5 sacks while playing 21 percent of the snaps on defense in 2019, but the edge rusher played just 18 snaps (26 percent) Thursday.

  • Texans' Jacob Martin: Shows off speed in scrimmage

    Martin scooped up a fumble and ran it in for a touchdown during Thursday's scrimmage, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Martin is a budding IDP candidate for the Texans and is expected to play a larger role in 2020. He played just 221 defensive snaps (21 percent) in 2019 but contributed 3.5 sacks. He'll be on the field in all passing situations and could get more snaps if he establishes himself against the run.

  • Texans' Jacob Martin: More comfortable in Year 2

    Martin is expected to play more during his second season with the Texans, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Martin, who joined the Texans from Seattle in the Jadeveon Clowney trade, used his quickness off the edge to record 3.5 sacks in 223 defensive snaps, which was 20.5 percent of the snaps. It's natural he'll get more playing time in 2020. He joined the Texans on Aug. 31 last year, days before the regular season, and had to learn a whole new system. "He's definitely more comfortable in our system," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "Coming into our system, some things (were) different. He's done a good job of picking that up. He's had a great camp." Martin will remain a backup at both outside linebacker spots, behind Whitney Mercilus and Brennan Scarlett, but Martin will be on the field in passing situations.

    Martin had one tackle, one sack, two quarterback hits and recovered a fumble in Saturday's 22-19 overtime win over the Bills in an AFC wild-card playoff game.

    Martin (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's playoff contest against the Patriots.
