This move will create a roster spot for FB Joey Iosefa, who was promoted to their active roster.
Martin, 24, originally signed on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska back in 2013. He lasted just a few months in New Orleans before later joining the Browns.
The Patriots signed him to a future/reserve contract in February, but he wound up being waived just a week into the season. Since then, Martin has been on and off of the team’s practice squad.
This season, Martin has appeared in four games and recorded two tackles for the Patriots.
