Curtis Martin Comeback???

Postby mrblitz » Sat Jun 02, 2007 2:05 pm

06/02 Jets: Could Martin make a comeback?
Source: Fanball
Curtis Martin hasn't given up hope of returning to the NFL this coming season. "He's talking about trying to come back," one source told the New York Daily News.

Our View
Martin probably won't make a decision until training camp nears in late July. He's worn down the cartilage in his knee to the point that it's just bone on bone, so the odds of him playing again are slim, at best. The Jets brought in Thomas Jones during the offseason, so they are set to move on without Martin.

He should just hang it up so that he isn't in pain for the rest of his life, if it hasn't gotten to that point already. I know he loves the game, but no one is going to want to sign him, and it probably isn't worth it in the long run.

How much of a debate is there if he is going to the Hall or not?

Didn't keep up with his early career and I know that he is likely HOF worthy, but is he a lock to get in?

IMO yes, he had what, 10 strait seasons with 1000+ yards and ranks 4th all time in yardage. I think he is in.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

I remember almost the identical same story with the identical same statement last preseason. I sincerely doubt this happens.

I'm sure the knee will not let him make this comeback even though he is probably in great shape as usual. There a spot on the coaching staff for him whenever he wants it.

Isn't his knee basically just bone on bone?

Anyways, he's had a good career. He had a good run piling up over 14,000 yards. Started every game for 6 years. 90 TDs. Not HOF, but a good career. Give up Curtis while you can still walk! He's 34, he's made a ton of money. What else is there to prove? That he can still play? That's just silly.
