Translation: Martin isn't likely to climb anywhere near the 368 touches he enjoyed during his Pro Bowl rookie campaign in 2012.
The Bucs last season showed their depth after Martin was lost for the year in October. In his absence, Tampa -- behind James and Rainey -- went on to average 144.8 yards per game over the next four weeks (after just 101.2 yards per outing during Martin's six starts).
