The Green Bay Packers saw one of their former stars get another chance at the NFL last night. After moving on from their leading tackler following the 2019 season, he has had quite an interesting story.
Former Green Bay Packers Star Linebacker Blake Martinez Officially Signs With The Carolina Panthers
According to Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report, free agent linebacker Blake Martinez has signed with the Panthers. October 25th marked Martinez’s first workout with the Panthers.
After retiring, Martinez, 29, started selling Pokemon cards as a side business. The social marketplace Whatnot, however, banned Blake’s Breaks from selling cards on its site in August.
The last time he played in the NFL was in 2022 with the Raiders, where he played in four games.
In 2016, the Packers drafted Martinez in the fourth round, and he played for them for four seasons. The 144 tackles Martinez made in 2017 led the league.
A return to the NFL is not an option that is available to everyone. During his career, Martinez recorded 706 combined tackles and 13 sacks in 84 games.
He joins a Panther defense that allows 28.3 points per game, tied with the Denver Broncos for last in the NFL. The Chicago Bears take on the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football this week. A team that Martinez is all too familiar with.
