He leads the NFL in tackles. Will that lead him to a new contract in Green Bay? It’s time to talk about Blake Martinez. All the way back in June, I wrote about Blake Martinez and the team’s inside linebacker position. This was before his draft classmate Dean Lowry got his new contract, before Oren Burks suffered a preseason injury that kept him sidelined for four weeks, and before the Packers brought in B.J. Goodson to be the run-stuffing complement to Martinez in the middle of the field.
Through seven games, the Packers find themselves at 6-1, and Martinez leads the league in tackles with 76.
