Martin steals show at Packers training camp
The star of the day at the first Green Bay Packers training camp practice on Monday was wide receiver Ruvell Martin.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports, "Receiver Ruvell Martin had a pair of spectacular catches. On the first, he beat cornerback Jarrett Bush on a fly pattern. His feet got tangled with Bush, but he still made the catch from Rodgers, who made an accurate delivery. A few plays later, Martin jumped and extended himself to snag another Rodgers pass on a hitch route."

Martin's exploits were also noticed by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Greg Bedard who described both of Martin's catches as "great."

Furthermore, Martin was the holder on the lone and successful field goal attempt of practice by Mason Crosby. Martin is proving his worth to the team as the likely emergency holder in case Jon Ryan were to get hurt.

Martin looks to the fifth wide receiver at best but with his performance, he's given no hint that his job might be in jeopardy. If a player like seventh round draft choice Brett Swain wants to make the team, Martin is telling the Packers that they better keep six wide receivers.
