Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin let the team midway through the 2013 NFL season because of bullying and harassment from a handful of his teammates, but he has taken the proper steps to take care of his mental issues and Martin is now ready to resume his NFL career.
Martin’s camp met with Dolphins head coach Joe Phibin, general manager Dennis Hickey and CEO Dawn Apante recently, where they acknowledged that he was not comfortable returning to South Beach to be with the team.
His agent reportedly told the Dolphins that a return to the team “wouldn’t work.”
It will be interesting to see what happens with Martin during the offseason, but what we do know is the Dolphins offensive line will be in shambles.
With John Jerry and Richie Incognito not expected to return, along with potential punishment for Mike Pouncey from the league, there is a real chance that the Dolphins will be starting the 2014 NFL season with five new offensive linemen protecting Ryan Tannehill.
