Derrick Martin has had better days than last Sunday.
The Patriots safety wasn’t one of the 46 players in uniform for the AFC Championship Game, which meant he had to stand and watch his season come to an end as the Ravens advanced to the Super Bowl with a 28-13 win. That’s bad enough even before finding out that your home in Colorado was being robbed while the Ravens were robbing your team of a trip to New Orleans.
The Denver Post reports that Martin’s Aurora, Colorado home was robbed and ransacked by two masked men. There was at least one adult and several children home at the time of the break-in, which ended after the burglars made off with “numerous items of value.”
“We don’t know if he was specifically targeted or not. There was nothing said during the robbery that would indicate that,” Aurora police spokesman Frank Fania said. “No shots were fired; no threats were made. Thankfully, no one was hurt.”
The Patriots loss ends Martin’s run as part of a Super Bowl champion at two years. Martin played for the Packers in the 2010 regular season and the Giants in the 2011 regular season and playoffs, which means he helped each of the last two Super Bowl champions navigate the season. With the Patriots loss and the home invasion, it’s fair to say Martin’s luck has run out.
