Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin met with NFL investigator Ted Wells on Friday. He has not spoken publicly since the scandal between himself and teammate Richie Incognito became public. Reporters were staked out all day outside his office waiting to hear Martin speak.

After over seven hours of meeting, Martin emerged from the building to be greeted with microphones and cameras. Martin didn’t say much, he just read a simple and brief statement that didn’t really give much information. The key parts of the statement are that he looks forward to meeting with the Dolphins organization “at the appropriate time,” and that he looks forward to resume his NFL career.

From Pro Football Talk:

Today’s meeting is consistent with my commitment to cooperate with the NFL’s investigation into my experience as a player on the Miami Dolphins.

Although I went into great detail with Mr. Ted Wells and his team, I do not intend to discuss this matter publicly at this time. I do, however, look forward to speaking directly with Stephen Ross, Tom Garfinkel, and the Dolphins organization at the appropriate time. This is the right way to handle the matter.

Beyond that, I look forward to working through the process and resuming my career in the National Football League.
