Yesterday, the Miami Dolphins and Dolphins player Richie Incognito both denied a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that former Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin left the team as a consequence of harassment and bullying. Incognito accused Schefter of slander and tweeted that he wanted his name cleared by all sports outlets.
Incognito since has been suspended indefinitely, and ESPN isn’t backing away from the story. Voice mails and text messages allegedly left on Martin’s phone are emerging as the possible reason for Incognito’s suspension and were the talk of sports media tonight.
In the mean time, Incognito maintains his innocence — maybe?
