Jonathan Martin traded from Dolphins to 49ersJonathan Martin is returning to familiar territory, months after he accused a teammate of bullying and left the Miami Dolphins.
The offensive tackle is headed back to the Bay Area to play for Jim Harbaugh - again.
Martin was traded from Miami to the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday night, reuniting the lineman with his college coach at Stanford and a supportive coaching staff he knows so well.
In fact, Harbaugh publicly expressed his support of Martin last year and called him a “personal friend.”
The Dolphins announced the move late on the first day of NFL free agency.
San Francisco then confirmed the trade, saying only that it would send an undisclosed draft choice to Miami and that Martin still must pass a physical to complete the deal.
The 24-year-old Martin’s move cross country brings him back to Northern California, but he is already in town - back on the Stanford campus taking classes.
