Richie Incognito has declined chance to speak with Jonathan Martin


It has been three years since the bullying scandal that enveloped then-Dolphins teammates Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin, and Incognito still has no interest in speaking to Martin.

Incognito, now with the Buffalo Bills, told Miami reporters on a conference call Wednesday that he has rebuffed Martin’s attempts to reach out and talk.

“Zero conversation with Jonathan Martin,” Incognito said, via Adam H. Beasley and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. “He’s reached out and tried to speak a few times, but I have nothing to say.”

Incognito added that owner Stephen Ross hadn’t spoken to him since before he was suspended over the issue, but that he has no regrets over how it was handled, calling himself close with Martin at the time.

“If anybody was there for Jonathan, it was me,” Incognito said. “And Jonathan had his troubles. He had his demons, like we all do. He left for whatever reason and he handled it the way he did and then really the story kind of takes on a life of its own. And there’s the narrative that Jonathan Martin and his camp wants you to believe and then there’s, you know, what me, what Mike Pouncey, what John Jerry, what [offensive line coach] Jim Turner, what Joe Philbin — what we know what happened.

I could sleep good at night knowing what happened and what my actions were. I’m not saying I was a saint but I sleep well at night knowing what I did.”

Incognito’s responses to Martin have always been a bit mixed. Apparently, he’s back to being negative.
