Ex-Michigan defensive tackle Mike Martin signs with Tennessee Titans
Mike Martin's professional career got underway last week, and now, he's about to collect his first official paycheck.
Martin, a former Michigan football defensive tackle, reached an agreement on an NFL contract with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday, according to a release on the team's official website. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Titans selected Martin in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, 82nd overall.
The 82nd pick in the 2011 draft, San Diego Charger wide receiver Vincent Brown, received a four-year contract and is scheduled to make $465,000 this season.
Martin becomes the second Titans draft choice to sign a deal. The team signed fourth-round pick Coty Sensabaugh earlier this week.
A tri-captain on Michigan's Sugar Bowl championship team a year ago, Martin tallied 64 tackles and six sacks in 2011. He finished his Wolverine career with 172 tackles and 10 sacks.
With Martin signed, all three Michigan draft choices have now inked NFL contracts. Both David Molk (Chargers) and Junior Hemingway (Chiefs) have also agreed to deals with their respective clubs.
