Martin signed a two-year contract with San Francisco on Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.

EDGE Analysis

Released by the Patriots at final roster cuts, Martin now landed with a team that has far less talent at his position. He's still more likely to have a role in the return game than on offense, at least for the immediate future. Martin could replace Jeremy Kerley as the top punt returner.

Martin limped off early in the fourth quarter of Thursday's preseason finale against the Giants with an unspecified injury, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to his exit from the contest, Martin caught two passes on four targets for 16 yards and a TD. He's fighting for a depth wideout slot on the Patriots' 53-man roster and if Martin's injury is anything of note, it could boost Aaron Dobson's chances of sticking.

Martin (undisclosed) is in uniform and will play Friday against the Panthers, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Martin was inked to a new deal in January, but he hasn't gotten on the field to this point in the preseason due to an undisclosed injury. Fortunately, he looks to be a full-go for Friday's showdown in Carolina. Martin figures to see some run as a reserve receiver Friday and he'll likely get some chances in the return game as well.

Martin (undisclosed injury) participated in individual drills Monday, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With roster cuts looming, Martin needs to get back on the field sooner rather than later, but at this stage, we still like his chances of sticking as the Patriots' No. 4 or No 5 wideout, given his versatility and special teams utility.

Martin (undisclosed injury) did not play in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Martin sat this one out after having been limited at practice of late, but he still has a solid shot to make the Patriots' final roster as a depth wideout. He's battling with the likes of Aaron Dobson, Nate Washington, DeAndre Carter, Chris Harper and Devin Lucien for slotting on that front.

Martin has signed a two-year, $3 million contract extension with the Patriots, ESPM.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Martin, who finished the 2015 regular season with 24 catches for 269 yards and two TDs in nine games for the Patriots after being acquired in a Sept. 17 trade with the Texans, will thus continue to provide the team with wideout depth next year. Heading into the upcoming offseason, Julian Edelman, Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola will all also be under contract with the Patriots in 2016, which probably puts Martin an injury or a personnel move away from fantasy relevance next season.

Martin finished the 2015 regular season with 24 catches for 269 yards and two TDs in nine games for the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

With Julian Edelman poised to return for the postseason, Martin's role in the Patriots offense figures to be reduced, with Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola also in the team's wideout mix. Beyond that, Martin's future with the team remains unclear, as he's in the final year of his rookie deal, signed while the 2012 fourth-round draft pick was with the Texans.

Martin was on the field for 56 of the Patriots' 60 snaps on offense in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Dolphins, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the Patriots' passing offense sputtered in Week 17, Martin caught just one pass on two targets for four yards in the contest. Assuming Julian Edelman is ready to roll once the postseason starts, Martin's role in the team's offense figures to be reduced, with Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola also in the team's wideout mix.

Martin caught seven of 11 targets for 68 yards in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Jets. He also ran once for six yards.

EDGE Analysis

With Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola both out Sunday, Martin saw an expanded role in the Patriots' offense, with what the team is playing for, as well as the availability of Edelman and Amendola, representing variables with regard to Martin's potential workload next Sunday against the Dolphins.
