NFL Locker Room Bullying Turns Ugly in Miami
Veterans have always given rookies a hard time in the NFL, but bullying and harassment are another matter. Miami’s 6’5”, 312-pound left tackle, Jonathan Martin, an All-American at Stanford tasked with protecting No. 1 pick Andrew Luck’s blind side, left the Dolphins last week after allegedly suffering a number of indignities from lineman Richie Incognito. Incognito reportedly sent Martin threatening and racist text messages. The Dolphins indefinitely suspended Incognito, whose football resume includes fines for abusing officials and head-butting opponents, while the team and the league investigate.
