Over 1,000 text messages that were exchanged between Miami Dolphins offensive linemen Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito from October 2012 to November 2013 were published by The Big Lead on Monday. I have combed through all of them, and the impression I get is that there is an entire side to the story that still needs to be told.
Incognito obviously likes to party. We have seen video proof that shows he acts like a jackass sometimes, but that doesn’t mean his relationship with Martin could not have been misunderstood. The text messages make it obvious that Martin is not a party animal. Incognito frequently asked him to go out to clubs. There were times when Martin would agree to meet up, but a lot of others when he made excuses like being too tired or already having plans to hang out with his parents.
