Former Broncos punter Sam Martin could potentially be the new punter for the Buffalo Bills.
Last week, Martin was cut by the Broncos for refusing to take a pay cut which ended up saving the team $2.25 million in cap space.
Veteran P Sam Martin is about to be released, source confirmed. Broncos going w/Corliss Waitman who has minimal experience, but is $1.4M cheaper, boots lefty and has strong leg.
Martin was scheduled to make $2.25M. Team informed yesterday he would not accept paycut.
According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, Martin paid a visit to the Bills and could become a possible replacement for Matt Araiza, who was released by the team after his rape allegations were made public.
The Bills waived rookie punter Matt Araiza four days ago, and they have not replaced him yet. They worked out four punters over the weekend, and, according to the NFL’s personnel notice, former Broncos punter Sam Martin was in Buffalo for a visit Wednesday.
The Bills have also worked out punters Michael Palardy, Ty Long, Tyler Newsome and Joseph Charlton but Martin should be the frontrunner considering he’s considered one of the top punters in the league.
Update: The Bills have signed Martin to a contract.
It’s official! 🙌
