Doug Martin has “a fresh set of legs Tom Rathman Jersey
,” according to offensive coordinator Greg Olson, as the 29-year-old running back has shown his quick burst of old during the Raiders’ organized team activities. It sets up a running back competition at training camp between Martin and Marshawn Lynch.
Martin, who has two 1,400-yard rushing seasons and four others with 400 yards, signed with the Raiders in March soon after the Buccaneers released him. He spent six seasons in Tampa Bay but had a career-low 406 yards last season and averaged only 2.9 yards per carry the past two years.
He also served a four-game suspension while with Tampa Bay.
“I got in my own way Stephen Gostkowski Jersey
,” Martin said, via Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Martin, though, gets a new start with a new team in a new city and a new coaching staff.
“I feel like a rookie again,” said Martin Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey
, who was born in Oakland and grew up in nearby Stockton.
Lynch, 32, had 891 yards and averaged 4.3 yards per carry last season as he unretired after sitting out the 2016 season.
Myles Garrett has taken aim — mostly playfully — at Ben Roethlisberger since the Browns made the defensive end the No. 1 overall pick in 2017. But Garrett has yet to play Roethlisberger.
Garrett missed the first four games last season with a high ankle sprain, which included the season opener against the Steelers, and Roethlisberger sat out the regular-season finale as a precaution for the playoffs.

, Garrett finally gets a chance to do what he’s said for more than a year he wanted to do.
鈥淸I want to] sack him. I want to win,” Garrett told Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. “I want to take him down multiple times. But I also want to have some fun.鈥?/p>
Soon after he was drafted, Garrett said he wanted to “chop him down” in reference to Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger responded by saying he and his offensive linemen couldn’t wait to meet Garrett.
Garrett trolled Roethlisberger again this offseason in a video produced by the Browns. In a parody of The Office, Garrett dressed the part of Dwight Schrute from the hit comedy and put a photo of Roethlisberger through the paper shredder.
The video went viral.
鈥淧eople loved it,鈥?Garrett said. 鈥淭hat鈥檚 what it was all about. Some people say you鈥檝e got to prove it. Well Christian Okoye Jersey
, that鈥檚 what the season鈥檚 for. You can鈥檛 shy away from the challenge and just a little bit of fun.”
The former Texas A&M star had seven sacks in 11 games last season despite the high-ankle sprain. He expects double-digit sacks this season.
鈥淭hat high ankle came with me all season,鈥?he said. 鈥淣o matter how much treatment you do or how much time you give it, you just have to stay off of it until it just goes away. You have to combine treatment and time away from the game. So after the season, I was able to do that and was finally healed completely.鈥?/p> Adidas Evgenii Dadonov Jersey
