Offensive lineman Jonathan Martin will get his chance to return to the NFL after the San Francisco 49ers acquired him from the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday (local time) for an undisclosed draft pick.

Martin played under 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh at Stanford before being chosen by the Dolphins in the 2012 draft.

He left the team last October after suffering emotional distress, which prompted a high profile NFL investigation that determined Martin was bullied and harassed by team mates including fellow lineman Richie Incognito, who was suspended indefinitely by the team.

"Opportunities are few in the NFL," Martin wrote on his Twitter account. "Can't wait to get to work."
