NFL Notes: Buccaneers, Packers, Ravens


According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, Buccaneers GM Jason Licht believes RB Doug Martin looks like the “Doug Martin of 2015.”

I had a conversation with [Licht]. He said, ‘[Martin] looks lean, he looks like he’s finishing his runs — obviously, there is no contact in the spring — but it looks like he’s finishing his runs. He looks like he’s got that burst. He looks like he’s got that burst. He looks like the Doug Martin of 2015,‘” Garafolo said.


During this year’s NFL Draft, a report surfaced that the Packers nearly traded (NFLTR) backup QB Brett Hundley.

On Thursday, Hundley was asked about the report but didn’t want to discuss the topic.

“I don’t know; I don’t get into it,” Hundley said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN. “Wherever I’m at, I’m going to play. I came here for one reason. I came here to play, and that’s my goal no matter where I’m at.

A sprained ankle cost Hundley most of the preseason last year, but he says he can’t wait to get back out there this year. 

“Just makes you want to play more,” Hundley said. “It’s been a while since I’ve had legitimate game reps instead of just going in at the end and playing a series or two. I’ll actually be able to play a couple of quarters. I just can’t wait. It’s different during the season when you’re going in at the end and it’s like one or two plays or even a series, because you can’t get any rhythm. Now you can get into it, that’s what I really want to do.”


New Ravens WR Jeremy Maclin tells Pro Football Talk that it was clear to him that Baltimore was the right spot for him to continue his NFL career.

“I thought Baltimore was the right spot on Friday,” Maclin said. “I just kind of took an extra two days to review and clearly you listen to other teams and listen to what they have to say. From the beginning, from a football standpoint, from a personal standpoint, from all the above, Baltimore just seemed like the right choice. I’ve always had respect for the organization, even though I’ve never played here. Just the way they did things, the way they went about things. And [coach John Harbaugh], I heard all the good stories about Harbs when I got to Philly. He was a very respected guy in that locker room. You just kind of put everything together and like I said, it was just always Baltimore.”
