“It’s not what you achieve in life, but who you become as a person due to those achievements.” – Curtis Martin
Running back Curtis Martin was drafted in the third round by the New England Patriots in 1995. Martin finished the year as the AFC’s leading rusher with 1,487 yards and scored 14 touchdowns. He was named Rookie of the Year, All-AFC, and voted to the first of his five Pro Bowls.
Martin’s steady output continued throughout his 11-season, 168-game career as he joined Hall of Famer Barry Sanders as the only runners ever to start their careers with 10 straight 1,000-yard seasons. Martin led his team in rushing in each of his 11 seasons in the NFL.
Martin, who signed as a restricted free agent with the New York Jets after his third season, had his finest year in his second to last season. He rushed for a career-high 1,697 yards in 2004 to win the lone NFL rushing title of his career. He also tied his career-high of nine games with 100 or more yards rushing. He was named first-team All-Pro for the second time of his career that season.
He retired in 2006 as the NFL’s fourth all-time leading rusher and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2012.
