Miami Dolphins' Richie Incognito Insists Reporting on Locker Room Bullying Has Been Misleading

Shared text from Jonathan Martin, who is accusing the team of harassment, that appears to say Martin doesn't blame teammates

For the past week, Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito has been at the epicenter of a firestorm that involves racial implications, and hazing and bullying allegations from his own teammate, Jonathan Martin, who left the team on Oct. 28.

Martin's attorney, David Cornwell, released a statement Thursday that alleges that Martin endured harassment that went far beyond the traditional locker-room hazing. Cornwell also stated that, beyond the well-publicized voicemail with its racial epithet, his client "endured a malicious physical attack on him by a teammate, and daily vulgar comments. The facts are not in dispute."

Incognito responded to the controversy Sunday, in a sit-down interview with FOX Sports that was taped Saturday at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. It is Incognito's first extended interview since the story broke. The interview first aired on NFL FOX Sunday, but an extended version aired Sunday night on FOX Sports Live
