The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Doug Martin have agreed to a five-year contract worth over $35 million, the team announced.

The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Last week, the Tampa Bay Times reported that the running back was set to enter free agency after Martin’s agent and the team had been unable to come to terms on a deal.

Martin was selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft by the Buccaneers. Over the course of his career, he has rushed for 3,806 yards and 20 touchdowns in 49 games with Tampa Bay.

The two-time Pro Bowl running back rushed for 1,402 yards and six touchdowns this past season.
