News: The Bucs have elected not to pick up the fifth-year option on Martin's contract, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Impact: As a result, Martin -- who carried 134 times for 494 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games in 2014 -- is slated to become an unrestricted free agent following the 2015 season, in the event that he doesn't sign an extension with the Bucs in the coming months. Heading into the coming campaign, the report suggests that Martin is likely to compete with Charles Sims for the Bucs' starting RB job, with Bobby Rainey and Mike James set to reprise their backup roles. Assuming he can re-prove his health, though, Martin has a solid shot to enter the season as the team's top early-down back, but at a minimum, Sims' pass-catching ability should earn him change-of-pace work and perhaps more, should he impress this summer.
