Jonathan Martin speaks about Richie Incognito situation, sort of


The Miami Dolphins locker room bullying scandal between Richie Incognito has hung over the landscape for a while now. We’ve heard Incognito come out and speak. Incognito even sat down with Fox Sports Jay Glazer for an exclusive interview.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross spoke out and called the acts appalling. Meanwhile the team seemed to vocalized their support for Incognito. The one person we hadn’t heard from yet was Martin himself.

Until today.

I do not intend to discuss this matter publicly at this time, . . .” Martin said, via Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. “This is the right way to handle this matter.”

Martin met for more than seven hours with league investigator Ted Wells at his New York office today. Wells in charge of the league’s investigation of the situation. Martin’s comments came as he was leaving the meeting. He didn’t answer questions from reporters, many of whom were staked out all day waiting to hear from him.

Martin did add that he was looking forward to “resuming my career in the National Football League.”

The next step for Wells is to interview Dolphins players. A Pro Football Talk source said that Wells plans to meet with Dolphins players next week.
