Jonathan Martin speaks after meeting with NFL investigator
Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin met with NFL investigator Ted Wells on Friday in New York City to discuss his complaints of harassment and bullying from his Dolphins teammates. Martin did not say much after his meeting, but he did issue a brief prepared statement to the media.
“Today’s meeting is consistent with my commitment to cooperating with the NFL’s investigation into my experience as a player on the Miami Dolphins,” Martin said. “Although I went into great detail with Mr. Ted Wells today, 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 to resuming my career in the National Football League.”
Martin left the team on Monday Oct. 28 following a prank in the team’s cafeteria. Teammate Richie Incognito was suspended indefinitely by the team that Sunday, a few days after allegations came up that he was Martin’s primary bully.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross spoke to the media this week and said he intends to get to the bottom of the situation and make the team’s locker room a safe workplace.
