Panthers OT Jonathan Martin excited about new opportunity
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/30/15) Panthers offensive tackle Jonathan Martin is looking forward to being a part of the team, reports the team's official website. He also believes that being with the Panthers is an ideal fit.
"I'm excited to be a part of a team that's had a lot of success recently," Martin said. "I know a little bit about coach Ron Rivera and (offensive line) coach (John) Matsko and I'm excited about working with them and being successful here."
Martin, a former second-round draft choice of the Dolphins, was surprised by the fact that he only spent one year with the 49ers.
"It was a little surprising not being in San Francisco for another year, but that's the nature of the business," Martin said. "I'm glad I got another opportunity. I'm excited to be a part of this group."
Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman likes the experience that Martin brings to the team.
"Our goal is to build the strongest roster possible and add competition at every position,"Gettleman said. "Jonathan brings quality experience to our offensive line, having started 32 games in his career at both tackle spots."
Martin wants to become a better player, and he appreciates the opportunity given to him by the Panthers.
"At this point it is firmly in the past," Martin said. "I want to have a successful career playing football. I'm lucky to have gotten an opportunity here in Carolina."
