Seahawks Sign WR Ruvell Martin
Posted Mar 15, 2010

The Seattle Seahawks announced the signings of tight end Chris Baker and wide receiver Ruvell Martin.

The Seattle Seahawks officially announced the signings of free agent tight end Chris Baker, who signed a two-year deal, and free agent wide receiver Ruvell Martin, who was signed to a one-year deal.

Martin, 27, began his NFL career with the San Diego Chargers in 2004, who signed Martin as an undrafted free agent out of Saginaw Valley State. Waived before the start of the 2004 pre-season, Martin didn't get a chance to make the roster until late in the 2005 pre-season, when he caught 6 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown before being waived.

Martin spent the second half of the 2005 regular season on the Green Bay Packers' practice squad. and he'd make the Packers' 53-man roster the following season.

In three seasons in Green Bay, Martin appeared in 41 games, including 9 starts, catching 52 passes for 749 yards and 6 touchdowns.

The Packers waived Martin before the 2009 regular season, and he was signed by the St. Louis Rams in Week 2. Martin caught 6 passes for 99 yards in eight games for the Rams, and recovered one fumble on special teams.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider obviously has a familiarity with Martin, and at 6-4 and 215 pounds, Martin is the big, physical receiver Schneider prefers.
