Keshawn Martin’s tenure with the Patriots will extend beyond the 2015 playoffs.

Martin signed a two-year, nearly $3 million extension with the Patriots, as first reported by ESPN’s Field Yates. The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin confirmed the report and provided additional details for the contract.

The Patriots traded with the Texans for Martin on Sept. 17. The former fourth round selection ascended up the depth chart due to injuries to receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. In nine regular season games with the Patriots, Martin had 24 receptions for 269 yards and two touchdowns.
