The Miami Dolphins messy locker room situation with offensive lineman Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito has taken center stage in the NFL world and everyone is weighing in on the issue. The latest to chime in is one of the most important, the NFL Player’s Association and they have made it clear that they plan a fair investigation.

The NFLPA has issued a statement on the situation, which you can read below:

We expect that the NFL and its clubs create a safe and professional workplace for all players and that owners, executives, coaches and players should set the best standards and examples. It is the duty of this union to hold the clubs and teams accountable for safety and professionalism in the workplace.

As the representative organization of all players, the NFLPA will insist on a fair investigation for all involved. We will continue to remain in contact with the impacted players, their representatives and player leadership.

At this point, it wouldn’t be a surprise if both player’s careers with the Dolphins were over, but the investigation could end up determining if either player will play again.

It is unlikely that Incognito will get another look with his latest incident, but Martin could find a home if he decides to return to football.
