The 49ers just announced they have waived offensive tackle Jonathan Martin. Erik Pears replaces Martin as the 49ers’ backup offensive tackle.
Last summer, the 49ers acquired Martin from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a conditional 2015 7th-round pick. Martin started nine games and gave up six sacks last season when Anthony Davis was injured.
Martin is not strong enough to be an offensive lineman in the NFL. He needs to get stronger before he signs with another team. I would be surprised if anyone signs him this offseason.
