Hall of Famer
- Oct 21, 2012
I seem to recall Martinek saying that after he was cut by the Giants in August of 2012 and wasn't put on the practice squad initially. He was training at a local gym with personal coach but he found the practices were mentally dragging him down and said he was close trying to join the New Jersey state police department. When he was put on the practice squad he deferred that dream. But with close to a year out of pro football I think he probably is trying that route as I have heard no stories about him playing in the low minor leagues or even semi-pro.
Martinek is a physically gifted player. Probably his pro career is over, which is a shame. Based on merit he should be in the NFL.
