7 weeks from tonight we will be sitting in TCF Bank Stadium (or watching on BTN) for the 6:00 kickoff against Buffalo. The 2017 season and the PJ Fleck era will begin.

Kamal Martin is going to be an integral part of the 2017 defense, using his unique size and athleticism as an OLB and potentially as a rush end.

The Burnsville native was a quarterback and safety in high school before transitioning to OLB where he immediately contributed as a true freshman. He played in all 13 games, started one, recorded 10 tackles, 1 interception and a fumble recovery.
