    Luck favors bringing Jonathan Martin to Indy

    For several weeks, if not longer, we’ve said that the Colts could be the best fit for Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin, if/when (when) Martin leaves the Dolphins.

    Colts quarterback Andrew Luck believes it’s a good fit, too.On Wednesday, Luck told Pro Football Talk on NBCSN that he supports the idea of the bringing his former Stanford teammate to Indy.

    While Luck pointed out that there have been no internal conversations regarding the possibility of trading for or signing Martin, Luck made it clear that he believes in Martin.

    “I’d say I love Jon, we had a great time at Stanford together, still stay in touch with him regularly and I think he’s a great man,” Luck said regarding the input he’d provide, if/when (when) he’s asked about Martin.

    Luck said he still regularly talks to Martin, and that they spoke “[p]robably a couple days ago.”

    Luck seemed to be choosing his words carefully, but he ultimately provided one key word in response to the question of whether he’d be 100 percent in favor of acquiring Martin: “Yes.”

    The Stanford connection to Martin goes beyond Andrew Luck. Offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton and tight end Coby Fleener also were at Stanford when Martin, a second-round pick in 2012, was there.

    As a result, if the Colts don’t want Martin, the flag is about as red as it could possibly be.

    If he wanted to avoid it, he might have gone with "I'm not the one to talk to about personnel decisions ......." and moved on. Sounds like he chose to give his thoughts.

    If he can help the team why not. If he is buddy buddy with the star QB I doubt anyone will harass him. The question does he help the team. I'm not in a position to answer that.

    See for me its that I don't think he will help the team he wasn't that good IMO and while there's a comfort level between Luck/Martin it still doesn't change the fact or me Martin isn't that great.

    Tough situation to gauge. Part of you says Martin needed to handle himself a little stronger as an NFL player, but Incognito's history and recent antics, including checking himself into a psychiatric facility, make it hard to deny that he's not a few puppies short of a litter.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    I think Incognito is off his rocker but how Martin handled it doesn't necessarily mean he doesn't have his own issues either.

    For me its that I don't find Martin that impressive we already have linemen on the Colts O-Line that aren't that great why add another?

    What do you have to give up to get him...that should be one of the first questions considered.
