The Buffalo Bills announced Wednesday wide receiver Ruvell Martin has signed a contract extension with the team. According to the team’s press release and their policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The journeyman wide receiver was an undrafted rookie free agent from Saginaw Valley State.
Martin joined the San Diego Chargers in 2004 as a member of their practice squad. However, the 6-4, 214-pound pass catcher made his debut in the NFL, as an active member, for the Green Bay Packers in 2006.
After being released by the Packers in 2008, Martin bounced around to the NFL with the St. Louis Rams (2009) and the Seattle Seahawks (2010).
The Michigan native joined the Bills last season and for the team’s 2011 campaign, he posted seven catches for 82 yards and tied for second on the team in special teams tackles. He was signed to the team’s 53-man roster on Sept. 13, due to an injury sustained by wide receiver Roscoe Parrish, after being released prior to the regular season.
Martin has totaled 72 catches for 1,088 yards and seven touchdowns in 68 games with nine starts for his NFL career.
