Niners claim Charly Martin

Steven Bisig-US PRESSWIRE

The Niners have claimed recently-released Seahawks WR Charly Martin. Martin was waived to make room for waiver-wire addition Kyle Nelson, whom the Niners had just released. So, essentially, the Seahawks traded Martin to the Niners for Nelson.

It's an interesting development - Martin made the final roster last year after signing as a street free agent, playing in four games (starting one) and catching four passes for 42 yards before being placed on the injured reserve. Over the offseason, Seattle has added Percy Harvin and Chris Harper, plus several rookie free agents and another former Niner in Brett Swain at receiver, so Martin became expendable as one of 14 receivers on the 90-man roster.

Best of luck to Martin in San Francisco - if he can stick there, we might have the chance to see him and Richardo Lockette on the field together, which would be strange.
