And Miami's first free agent signing is...
Miami's first free agent signing of the offseason is TE David Martin. Martin was a sixth-round draft pick of the Green Bay Packers in 2001. He played his first six seasons in Green Bay. He measures 6'4", 265 pounds and is generally thought of as a good receiving tight end, although injuries have hampered him throughout the years. Last year, he played in eleven games (four starts) catching 21 passes for 198 yards and 2 touchdowns.
It's possible that the signing of Martin could be insurance in the event that Miami trades TE Randy McMichael.
Miami is likely to offer a contract to WR Kelley Washington as early as Monday.
