Doug Martin Personal Issues:

It was reported earlier this week [via LBS] that Buccaneers running back Doug Martin was dealing with undisclosed personal issues. before it was revealed that he was suspended for drug abuse, Doug Martin had reportedly stepped away from the team. The reason why he removed himself in advance of the final game of the regular season was unanswered.

Later Wednesday afternoon it was revealed by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Martin tested positive for adderall. He writes:

“The @NFL says #Bucs RB Doug Martin is suspended for violating the PED policy. I’m told it’s for adderall & part of the issues he’s battling.”

Prior to that report, there had been speculation that the Buccaneers are planning to release Martin during the offseason. It appears that there’s more here than is being revealed publicly about the 27-year-old.

Hopefully this is a wake up call during his 4 day suspension. Hopefully he gets the help needed. As for him being cut, there is no word at this time.
