Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito has been suspended indefinitely by the team for his role in the situation that led offensive tackle Jonathan Martin to leave the team, and more information continues to surface.
Incognito is now accused of sending threatening and racially charged messages to Martin, which was what ultimately sent Martin over the edge.
While information is still being gathered, it looks like Incognito is much more in the wrong than he made it appear.
Multiple sources told FOX Sports the Miami Dolphins and the NFL Players Association have been told guard Richie Incognito sent Martin text messages and left him voicemails that are both threatening and racially charged in nature. Sources said those messages will be shared with the league as part of the investigation.
This new information resulted in the Dolphins changing their tone from claiming the organization was not notified of any bullying to saying the club would ask the NFL for help in investigating a matter the organization takes “very seriously” and finally to suspending Incognito indefinitely for “conduct detrimental to the team.”
It is very possible that Incognito’s Dolphins career is over, especially if he is found guilty of the accusations.
Incognito was hoping to clear his name, but it appears less and less likely as the situation continues to develop.
