Safety Ronald Martin came into the league from one of college's best secondaries in LSU. He joined the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent, but was cut by the team. He has since signed to the New York Jets' practice squad, his second NFL team in one offseason.
At the very least, he's had the benefit of playing for some of the best defenses in football.
"The facility's great, the people are great, the team's great," Martin said of the Seahawks, via the Jets' official website. "It's just a good atmosphere over there for a kid that's coming out of college. And to say you're going to be away from your family, they treat you just like family.

"I kind of get the same vibe here, too, with the coaches and everything. I'd say it's kind of similar."
The Jets have a new-look secondary this season, headlined by the return of Darrelle Revis. They're making the case as the NFL's best secondary, especially with Kam Chancellor possibly holding out for the entire season. Even if the Jets aren't considered the best, Martin is taking advantage of the opportunity to learn from the team's veterans.
"It's a great opportunity for me to learn from the guys here, and it was great learning from the guys in Seattle, too," Martin said. "It's just been a blessing all around for me to say I've been around some of the best in the league."
