Martin's status for season uncertain

Star-Ledger Staff
Before the NFL Draft last April, Jets running back Curtis Martin, his surgically-repaired right knee still bothering him, met with the Jets and told them they should strongly consider selecting a running back high in the draft because of his concern about his ability to play this season, a team official told The Star-Ledger yesterday.

Martin, 33, has had surgery on his right knee the past two seasons. It is believed that a great deal of the cartilage in the knee is gone and that's what is giving Martin trouble despite his well-documented threshold for pain.

"It's bone on bone," the official said.

True that man. Curtis has always just gone about his business and I have the aught most respect for him. The Jets are looking pretty slim at running back right now. I don't really think Leon Washington can carry it more than 15 times a game.

For him to suggest to the front office to draft a high RB to replace him just goes to show you how deep his loyalty is....not many would give a damn.

Very good running back. Could be a Hall of Famer once he is done.

without a doubt he is a hall of famer.

It will be a sad sad day if/when he retires.

Shula Come Back!

Damn....I hate the Jets and all, but all their great ones are retiring. Wayne Chrebet and Curtis Martin were easily my two favorite Jets. Both great players and both class acts! Old age (what like 33) is a cruel thing in the NFL!!!

him and Jon Vilma..my to favorite players on the Jets by far :wink:

He's a class act, but probably should hang 'em up. Would look good in the "Hall of Fame".

08-10-2006, 05:29 PM
He really is a classy guy.I met him.He even didnt hesitate to take a pic with me and some other Fins fans.Thats more than I can say for any Jets player or fan.I wish him the best.
