Miami Dolphins’ Richie Incognito Suspended Indefinitely For Bullying Teammate Jonathan Martin


By now I’m sure you’ve heard about Dolphins' Jonathan Martin leaving the team because of being bullied.

Well more details have emerged about the situation including the suspension of offensive lineman Richie Incognito for conduct detrimental to the team. Incognito has reportedly been the “primary bully” of Jonathan Martin.

According to the latest reports, things went bad following a prank in the cafeteria of the Dolphins’ facility. However, the bullying has been going on since Martin became a Dolphin in 2012 during his rookie season with the team.

FOX’s Mike Garafolo says Martin’s representatives informed the team and league that Incognito has sent Martin multiple threatening and racially-charged text messages. CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported on Sunday that Martin is “genuinely scared” of Incognito.

Those text messages might be part of the reason why. Despite the reports of the problems between the players, a text message conversation between Martin and Incognito became public on Friday. In the text conversation, Martin called Incognito “buddy” and said he left the team because he had grown tired of the football culture and locker room.

Incognito went on a Twitter crusade early Sunday in an attempt to clear his name.

The Dolphins have asked the NFL to investigate the situation.
