Bucs Rumors: Tampa Bay Fielding Calls About Trading RB Doug Martin

Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin might not be a Buccaneer after Tuesday's trade deadline.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Bucs have been fielding calls about the third-year back.

There's speculation that the New England Patriots are one of the teams calling about the former Pro-Bowler to add some much needed depth to their backfield (starter Stevan Ridley is out for the year with a torn ACL).

Reports indicate that Tampa is looking for a mid-round pick in exchange for Martin.

The Boise State product rushed for nearly 1,500 yards in his rookie season, but has missed most of the past season and a half with injuries. Martin has 166 yards on 58 carries this season.
