San Francisco parted ways with Martin on Thursday just a year after they sent a seventh-round pick to the Dolphins in return for Martin.
Martin, 25, has another year remaining on his four-year, $4,784,267 rookie contract, which includes a $1,042,400 base salary for the 2015 season.
Martin is a former second-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2012. He lasted two years in Miami before he left the team due to the bullying situation that resulted in Richie Incognito taking an extended leave from the team.
In 2014, Martin appeared in 15 games and played a total of 661 snaps for the 49ers. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 60 offensive tackle in the league out of 84 qualifying players.
