Jonathan Martin will not be in a Dolphins uniform next season.  Despite his Miami/Incognito baggage, Martin is a talented blocker and could fill a hole on the Bills roster as an undervalued acquisition.

Do his pros outweigh his cons?

Why not?

He will not be expensive, and would fill a need on our line.

how about a hell no option.

I got text that said "persistence of vulgar language made him feel trapped"

are you serious? Man up tough guy. I work with trucker mouths and it's annoying but I'm not quitting my job for it.

Like I've said before, he is mentally weak and we don't need that here.

how about putting an option for Richie.

I'd rather have Richie Incognito back, seriously. Just don't make him a captain, he's better then anyone that played guard for us this year.

Define "good player" because I'm pretty sure he was bordering on terrible

On Draft day the Bills had the choice between Cordy Glenn and Jonathan Martin. They chose wisely.

Martin was a turnstile. On film in the NFL there is no reason to think he has any potential in the league.

You can find a less dramatic option for RT.

He has proven to be the worst thing an nfl player let alone offensive lineman can be, mentally weak.

We have a need for a turnstile. I wasn't aware of that.

Yeah, he has been pretty darn awful at OT.   I wonder if he might be better suited to move inside to OG?  Anyone have any insight?

No, no, no, and no.

He was terrible at both tackle spots and is proving to have some issues off the field (regardless of where you stand on his situation, there's no denying he's got some issues).

He has no potential to play guard either, as he lacks strength, stoutness, and the ability to play in closed-space.

if he is a good player at that position, better than we could find in FA (at a reasonable price) and the draft, then Yes.

His play is suspect.  He obviously can't handle an NFL locker room.

Why would we need a guy like this?  Why should we be the team to pick him up?

I can't believe it goes beyond WSS's comment above...even at a discount he is not a good OLinemen.

Martin stinks as a player.

Can we add more options to the poll?   I don't want him due to the fact he can't block.

I'm shocked by some of the responses here.  Incognito is a known idiot.  Yet Martin still is getting crap for saying enough is a enough?  Because he's a football player, he has to physically stand up to a known wacko?  How would that go over in your job place?  Martin took a stand and because of it, lockerrooms will be different.

Martin was tough enough to protect Andrew Luck's blindside in college.  He was tough enough to be a 2nd round pick.  Who's to say that his play was hurt because of the crap going on in that lockerroom?  It would cost nothing to bring him in.  IMO, he has the potential to be the perfect RT in today's NFL.  He needs strength but honestly, athletic tackles are more important than maulers.  The Bills have a great lockerroom and Martin would love it here.  Personally, I would have tried to stand up to that idiot RI.  But why get on the case of guy who decided to take a different way than violence?

You left out the third option - No, because he's not really good.
