HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – Keyshawn Martin, entering his second year with the Texans, is getting into a second-year groove.  Head coach Gary Kubiak was impressed with Martin and the progress he made from his rookie year to OTAs.

“One of the keys to longevity in this league, success-wise, is young players getting better real quick,” Kubiak told players after OTA practice Thursday.  “It’s fun for me right now to sit here and watch Keyshawn.”

Martin, who was selected in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, became the full-time return specialist when Trindon Holliday was cut.  In 2012, Martin averaged 12.1 yards on punt returns and 23.9 yards on kickoff returns in 16 games.  He scored his lone touchdown of the season in Week 11 against Jacksonville with a 9-yard pass from Matt Schaub.

“It’s automatic for him now.  All his talent’s taken over because he doesn’t have to work so hard at the little things,” said Kubiak.

“He just comes out here and plays. Very confident young man and it shows every day.”
