Jets: Martin to share the load?
In his first interview with the media, new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer talked about the Jets offense, including the role of running back Curtis Martin. "It's way too early do decipher if Cutis can do that (continue to carry the ball 300 times per season)," Schottenheimer told the Newark Star-Ledger. "If we have four running backs we think can play, we're going to be flexible enough to play all four."
Martin, who is coming off minor knee surgery that ended his 2005 season prematurely, is 33 years old and has over 3,500 carries on his treads, including over 300 in eight of his 11 seasons. The Jets previous coach, Herm Edwards, ran C-Mart into the ground nearly every season. Schottenheimer and the Jets have been tight-lipped about, well, everything this offseason, but we're pretty certain Schottenheimer is simply aiming to keep his future Hall of Famer fresh, not indicating that he'll be part of a job share.
