The Bucs must have liked what they saw after Martin returned for offseason workouts last month following a drug suspension and subsequent trip to rehab. Tampa Bay didn’t take a running back until Round 5 in Jeremy McNichols, who, incidentally, comes from the same college (Boise State) as Martin. Even with Martin set to miss the first three games this season, the Bucs appear willing to give him the chance to regain the form that made him the NFL’s second-leading rusher in 2015.

Panthers offensive lineman Michael Oher has been cited by Nashville police for allegedly assaulting an Uber driver, WSOC-TV in Charlotte, N.C., reported Thursday.

According to the report, the Uber driver told police he and Oher got into an argument during a ride April 14. The driver said he put his hand in Oher’s face, then Oher hit him, causing him to fall to the ground.

Oher is due to return to Nashville before May 8 to be booked by Nashville police. He has not commented on the situation.

The Panthers in a statement said they are aware of the charge against Oher and declined further comment.

Oher, who signed with the Panthers in 2015, was the basis for the 2009 movie, The Blind Side, for which actress Sandra Bulloch won an Oscar. He missed the final 13 games of the 2016 season under concussion protocol. He still has not been fully cleared to return to football.
