Derrick Martin (born May 16, 1985 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a back-up strong safety who played for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) from 2009 to 2010. He was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played college football at Wyoming.
Martin was selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round (208th overall) in the 2006 NFL Draft. He was the first player to be selected by the Ravens out of the University of Wyoming. In his rookie season, he played in eight games posting four tackles. He made his NFL debut versus the Carolina Panthers on October 15. During the 2007 season, he made 32 tackles.
Martin's biggest impact was seen on special teams, where he finished second on the team with a career-high 21 special teams tackles. He was one of the Packers two special teams captains (along with linebacker Desmond Bishop) in Green Bay's playoff loss at the Arizona Cardinals.
During the offseason, Martin signed a contract extension with the Packers on February 22. On September 27, 2010, Martin had his first interception for the Packers in a Monday Night Football encounter against the Chicago Bears, intercepting a pass from Jay Cutler for a 15-yard return. Two weeks later however, Martin was placed on injured reserve when he sustained a knee injury against the Washington Redskins on October 10, 2010.
