The Jets have traded DE Jacob Martin and a 2024 5th-round pick to the Broncos in exchange for a 2024 4th-round pick, pending a physical.
Martin (6-2, 242) signed with the Green & White in March after three seasons with the Texans where he started a career-high 14 games in 2021. He registered career-highs in tackles (23), tackles for loss (5), sacks (4), pass defenses (3) and forced fumbles (2) with Houston. This season, Martin has 8 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 4 QB hits and 1 forced fumble in 8 games. Originally selected by the Seahawks in the fourth round in sixth round out of Temple, Martin has 72 tackles, 13 TFL, 15 sacks, 28 QB hits, 4 pass defenses and 7 forced fumbles in 69 career games (15 starts).
This second trade GM Joe Douglas executed prior to the NFL's trade deadline. Douglas acquired former Jaguars RB James Robinson last week.
