If Jonathan Martin, who has been at the center of the Dolphins' Richie Incognito bullying saga, is indeed done playing football in Miami, he may be a good fit for the Eagles, according to one ESPN analyst.

The connection is based on the fact that Martin and Eagles tight end Zach Ertz played together at Stanford.

Elliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com has the story:

ESPN's Jon Clayton was asked on SportsCenter what the future holds for Martin, and he had an interesting take on where Martin might end up.

  • "If he does go to another team, maybe a John Harbaugh would take him on," Clayton said. "Or maybe Zach Ertz can convince Chip Kelly into bringing him in. He still has a football career left, it just depends on how much he can do this year."

    While it was clearly speculation, and basically derived from the fact that Martin and Ertz are friends, it is an interesting idea.
