The Aurora, Colorado, home of Patriots reserve safety Derrick Martin was robbed at gunpoint during the AFC Championship Game. Martin, who played in five games with the Patriots this season, was inactive for Sunday’s game.
Police said armed men stormed into Martin’s home, held up people at gunpoint and stole stuff from the home before fleeing. Among those inside the home at the time were at least one adult and some children.
Police said no one was hurt in the robbery.
Police weren’t sure if Martin’s home was targeted, though they did acknowledge the timing was suspicious considering it occurred during the AFC Championship Game, WCVB reported.
Martin played with the Ravens, Packers and Giants before signing with the Patriots this offseason. He was among the final cuts in training camp, but re-signed with the team in October.
