Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin remains away from the team, but he’s still getting paid. Because he’s still on the active roster.
He’ll get paid for Week 10 because it’s Tuesday and he has yet to be shifted to the non-football illness list, per a source with knowledge of the situation.
Moving Martin to the NFI list would give the Dolphins an extra roster spot, along with the opportunity to not pay Martin.
The decision to keep Martin on the active roster through Tuesday suggests that, if/when he’s moved to the NFI list, he’ll still be paid. And that would be a fair outcome, given that Martin ultimately left the team due to harassment from a teammate.
There’s also a chance (likely slim, but nevertheless a chance) that the league will decline to permit the Dolphins to place Martin on the NFI list, given that the illness arguably is football related.
