Martin was released by the Broncos, creating $3.8 million in salary-cap space.

Martin was due a $4.8 million base salary this fall.

Martin was acquired from the New York Jets for a fourth-round draft pick in exchange for him and a fifth-round selection. He played in five games last season with one sack for the Broncos and had 1 1/2 sacks and a forced fumble in eight games for the Jets.

He previously signed a three-year, $13.5 million free agent deal, with the Jets that included a $3.465 million signing bonus with $6 million total guaranteed.

Martin, 27, has 16 career sacks, including a career-high four sacks in 2021, his final season with the Texans, along with five tackles for a loss and a safety.

A former Seattle Seahawks sixth-round draft pick from Temple, Martin was acquired by the Texans in the Jadeveon Clowney trade..
