The Cleveland Browns are adding a new offensive guard to their lineup for the upcoming season: Wes Martin. This Ohio native is returning to his home state after spending three of the past four seasons in Washington and playing for the Giants in 2021. Martin was made a fourth-round pick in 2019 by the Commanders and played 25 games with ten starts over the course of his first two seasons.
While Martin only got one start during his seven games with the Giants in 2021, his experience and versatility make him a valuable addition to the Browns. He also spent time with the Jaguars during the season, which gave him an opportunity to showcase his talent to other NFL teams.
One major benefit of this acquisition is that Martin will provide backup for starting guards Joel Bitonio and Wyatt Teller. This will help to ensure that the Browns always have reliable guards to protect quarterback Baker Mayfield and block for running backs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt.
Overall, this move is a smart one for the Browns as they gear up for the upcoming NFL season. Martin’s experience and flexibility add depth to the team’s offensive line, which is crucial for any successful football team. Fans of the Browns should be excited to see what this new acquisition will bring to the team, and how he will contribute to their overall success.
