Dolphins owner texts Jonathan Martin; wants to create professional atmosphere


The once proud Miami Dolphins organization is in the headlines for all of the wrong reasons lately, but they are working hard to right a wrong. The Dolphins front office and coaching staff deserves much of the blame for letting their locker room situation out of hand and it looks like owner Stephen Ross is ready to attempt to make things right.

According to reports, Ross reached out to offensive lineman Jonathan Martin, who recently left the team due to harassment and bullying.

From ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

This could open the door to an eventual Martin return to the locker room, but it isn’t going to be easy.

Many of his teammates feel that Martin quit on the team and that is the hardest thing for any player to overcome. However, if the owner takes the appropriate measures and gets everyone back on board, the possibility is there.

As for Ross stepping up to right the situation, this just furthers the belief that general manager Jeff Ireland and head coach Joe Philbin will not be around long after the season is over.
