This won't be a bad signing if it's a piece of the overall puzzle. There has to be more rebuilding back there to even comment on what this means.
This is what it seems like to me. We need offense on D, we all know that. Was Martin really providing that? Imo he hasn't lived up to that end of th bargain.
In the wrost case, this move at least gives us some stability to replace Martin's defensive game and keep us competetive. That if anything was Martin's strong point - he is an axcellent defender.
Now it seems a little bit redundant on the back end but more moves have to be made.
