Jonathan Martin is returning to familiar territory, months after he accused a teammate of bullying and left the Miami Dolphins over those accusations.  The offensive tackle is headed back to the Bay Area to play for Jim Harbaugh once again.

Martin was traded from Dolphins to the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday night, reuniting the lineman with his college coach at Stanford and a supportive coaching staff he knows so well. In fact, Harbaugh publicly expressed his support of Martin last year and called him a "personal friend."

Martin still must pass a physical to complete the deal but was so excited he said via his Twitter account:

Martin's departure from the Dolphins had been expected. Owner Stephen Ross said in January that he didn't expect Martin to play for the team again.
