Martin was a key contributor in '08 as the Phins went 11-5. Then, his absence was noticed in '09 as the team struggled with the big play and getting the most out of the tight end.
I wonder what the effect of him returning will be?

BOCA RATON, FL (August 5, 2010) – The City of Boca Raton and the Miami Dolphins invite the South Florida community and all Dolphins' fans to Downtown Boca for the first official Dolphins' pep rally of the 2010 season that will include a special joint fan program news announcement on Thursday, August 12th at the Mizner Park Amphitheater. Presented by the City of Boca Raton, the free and open-to-the public festivities run from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Fans will be able to celebrate the kick-off of the 2010 Miami Dolphins season — billed as the South Florida's Biggest Party —with City of Boca Raton officials, Miami Dolphins' CEO Mike Dee, team alumni, Dolphins cheerleaders, TD the mascot, Fins Force and hundreds of "finatics". Kids of all ages will also have fun with a 20-foot Dolphin player air dancer, bronze player statue performer, stilt walkers, power skippers, Dolphins bounce house, Dolphins quarterback toss, and receive giveaways as well as enjoy special games and activities. There will be great music, entertainment, and photo opportunities for attendees and an array of food vendors.
"We are so pleased to host the Miami Dolphins and welcome the greater South Florida community and all Dolphins fans to our vibrant Downtown Boca," said City of Boca Raton Mayor Susan Whelchel. "In addition to cheering on our South Florida home team, pep rally attendees will enjoy discovering all that is Downtown Boca, from great restaurants, shopping, cultural offerings, parks, business community, nightlife and family fun."
"The residents of Boca Raton have long been among our most ardent and passionate fans," said Mike Dee, Dolphins' CEO. "We appreciate the entire city rolling out the orange carpet for us as we partner together on this event and more this season."
``I had a team meeting and kind of got into them a little bit, It was about 7-9 not being good enough and how this team shouldn't be fat, they should be starving. They should be hungry and want to feed the wolf. So now when we talk about this we talk about feeding the wolf with little successes every day.''
``That's feeding us as a team, as a whole, each time we come out on the field,.We stay hungry, we get hungrier. We're stuffing ourselves with great practices.''
``We're fighting for one goal: Win it all. We're starving for success.''
