Derrick Martin's Aurora Home Robbed

Jim Rogash

While defensive back Derrick Martin was with the team during Sunday's AFC Championship Game, his Aurora, Colo. home was invaded by two masked men.

On Sunday night at around 8:05 p.m., two men in masks broke into the home of defensive back Derrick Martin while he was with the team during the AFC Championship game. The robbers made off with "numerous items of value," according to Aurora police spokesman Frank Fania.

At least one adult and multiple children were in the house at the time of the robbery, according to police, but nobody was hurt.

While authorities haven't indicated whether or not the robbers had a personal connection to Martin, they did concede that random home invasions are typically rare.

Martin was perceived as being a "good luck charm" prior to him joining the Patriots as he was with the Green Bay Packers during their 2010 Super Bowl win and was a rostered member of the New York Giants in 2011 during theirs.

Martin, 27, never saw much playing time with the Patriots as he was routinely seen on the pre-game inactive lists, brought on primarily to bolster secondary depth in the event of an injury. Martin was a sixth-round selection out of the University of Wyoming by the Baltimore Ravens during the 2006 NFL Draft.
