Report: Buccaneers will not trade Doug Martin before deadline

November 2, 2015

With the 2015 NFL trade deadline coming up on November 3, it means that the rumors will begin to fly about players potentially on the move.

Well, one player who apparently won't be on the move, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, is Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin.

While the Buccaneers chose to not exercise the fifth-year option on Martin's contract this past offseason, it was widely expected that the team was set to part ways with the running back. Since that point, Martin has hit the ground running in 2015, totaling 612 yards through seven games.

It's unknown what this means for Martin's future with the Buccaneers, but one thing that seems nearly certain at this point is that he'll be in Tampa Bay throughout 2015 to help the team push for a potential playoff berth.
