Doug Martin Gets New NFL Home
So I lived in the city of Stockton, CA for a couple of years. It wasn't the most magical place to live but I had family there and made a ton of friends. Would I ever live there again? Not a chance. But maybe pretty close....if it was worth it. Turns out a former BSU player turned NFL running back also has a connection to Stockton, and it turns out he's heading back, well close at least. I'm guessing the offer was pretty good.
Former Boise State running back, Doug Martin was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last month; they first drafted him in the first round back in 2012. Now, according to the Idaho Statesman, Martin is headed closer to home, he's agreed to terms with the Oakland Raiders (Oakland's only about an hour from Stockton). So he'll be way closer to home!
Doug we wish you the best man! Unfortunatly, it's going to be harder for me to root for him though, because although we've got that Stockton connection, I'm a Niners fan...and they're rivals soooooo.
