Martin will remain at the ever-improving Tigers until 2017.
Richmond midfielder Dustin Martin has signed a new two-year deal with the Tigers, locking him in at Punt Road until at least the end of the 2017 season.

It leaves only Alex Rance as the only big-name Richmond player yet to commit long-term to the ever-improving side.
It seems Martin’s decision to re-sign was a lot smoother this time around after a messy episode in 2013 saw him attempt to hold out for a more lucrative deal at a rival club.
He eventually re-signed for two years on lower money.
Martin now says he couldn’t be happier to remain at Tigerland.
“I’m rapt, to be honest – I’m glad we got it all done and I don’t have to worry about it for another few years,” he told the Tigers’ website.
“I couldn’t be happier. The club has been massive for me – they’ve obviously been a massive part of my life since I was 18 and they’ve taught me about life and a lot about footy as well.”
Richmond football manager Dan Richardson says he expects the 23-year-old to step up yet again in 2015.
“It’s obviously great news, as Dustin is such a pivotal player in our plans for the future,” Richardson said.
“Dustin’s development, both on and off the field, has been extremely impressive, and it’s exciting to think that at just 23, he still has scope for significant further improvement.
“Following a strong pre-season, we look forward to seeing him take another key step in his league career in 2015.”
Martin was taken at pick no.3 in the 2009 National Draft and has played 108 games since his debut in 2010.
