SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Early in his career, Jonathan Martin had a harder time keeping plays straight while shifting from one side of the offensive line to the other.
That ability and versatility now might help earn him a job with the San Francisco 49ers after what coach Jim Harbaugh considers an impressive first training camp with the team.
Martin feels fit and well adapted in the offense and his new surroundings, having moved past a three-week bout with mononucleosis this spring and his tumultuous departure from the Miami Dolphins last fall amid a bullying scandal.
For now, Martin is concerning himself with all that he can control to earn a spot on the 53-man roster when final cuts are complete Aug. 30. He has started both preseason games at right tackle in place of starter Anthony Davis and also played snaps on the left side.
