Martin, 28, is a former fourth-round pick of the San Diego Chargers. He spent the first four years of his career in San Diego before he signed a two-year contract with the Miami Dolphins as an unrestricted free agent back in March of 2013. However, Martin lasted less than a year with the Dolphins.
The Lions later signed him to a contract last year, but he was later released in early June.
Martin did not appear in a single game during the 2014 season.
