Lions scheduled to meet with OG/C Marcus Martin

Per Mike Garafolo, the Detroit Lions will meet with free agent OG/C Marcus Martin.

Martin played for the Cleveland Browns in 2017, but did not play in any games. Considering the Browns had both of their starting guards and center play every snap last year, it was difficult to find playing time.

He was originally drafted in the third round by the San Francisco 49ers in 2014. At the 70th overall selection, he was taken six spots ahead of C Travis Swanson. The 6-foot-3, 310-pounder was a center while at USC.

In his NFL career, he has started 24 of his 26 games played– both at center and guard– all with the 49ers. He has never been able to live up to his third round draft grade.
