I'm at my job right now and one of our clients is named Curtis James Martin Jr, and it reminded me of Curtis Martin.

Is Curtis coming back any time soon? Is he going to retire? It's probably late, but I forgot and would like to know what's up with this HOF player.

Waiting to retire.

Has to wait to a certain date for some kind of insurance to kick in and pay him. That's all

RB Martin to make Jets retirement official (http://www.nypost.com/seven/07242007/sports/jets/final_curt_ain_martin_to_make_retirement_official_jets_mark_cannizzaro.htm)

Curtis Martin will officially announce his retirement within the next two days, The Post has learned. The Jets are expected to make Martin's retirement official with a formal announcement before training camp begins. All players are due to report to Weeb Ewbank Hall on Thursday, with two-a-day practice sessions beginning Friday, meaning the likely day for his ceremonial final run is tomorrow. The time and place for Martin's formal goodbye has yet to be finalized, but it probably will take place in Manhattan. -- NY Post

As much as i rooted against Martin on sundays when he played Miami he is a great player. Always has been a threat for the jets and i will miss seeing him play. He had a good career.

He's on the early show right now. Just came to this thread and they introduce him on The Early Show. Said he's done playing football in the NFL, but not done with the NFL - he's definitely in negotiations to purchase an NFL team but wouldn't say which team.

I must admit as much as I loathe the Jets..Martin was a great RB, and he had a solid career.

Curtis Martin officially retired yesterday and today on WFAN (NY) said it was a dream of his to buy a team. He said he had the funds and was close enough on a deal for a team and that he thought he would have been able to make an announcement in the near future.

Well, its just around this time of year that speculation on Wayne selling part or all of the team surfaces. Coupled with that with the fact that Martin has a house in Miami and said he spends most of his time between Miami and NY and it makes you wonder.

WH is not selling the team. He'll listen but he makes gauranteed money every single year.

Look for it to be the Cardinals or the Saints. Or he might get really dumb and buy the BillyGoats...

The current value of the Miami Dolphins is $856 million. Ole Curtis landed some pretty sweet contracts up there that he didn't report, if he has saved up that much Dust.

The Vickings, the least valued team in the NFL comes in at $658 mil. I don't believe he has the scratch to buy them either.

He must be talking about investing in Mark Cubans new league.

Martin certainly can't but a team on his own...he'll need massive financial backing to get it done. It would be a shame if it was in Cubans league but if would be great if it were the Phins. Former NYJ part owner of the Phins? That would seal the fate of the franchise. I, for one, couldn't be happier with the prospect.

He is one of the greats both on and off the field.

I hope he goes into the HOF and the Jets retire his number. Either way, I will be at both events.

It's nice to see rival fans saying such nice things about Curtis. Curits is/was all class both on and off the field nd the league will miss him- the league needs more people like him.

Definite first ballot half of famer IMO. Class act all the way.
