Bully, racist and general all around a-hole are just a few of the descriptions heard lately of Miami Dolphins, or should we say soon-to-be former Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito.
The investigation into the treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin moved pretty quickly since the weekend, and it all points to Incognito being the main culprit that prompted Martin to bolt from the team due to emotional reasons.
The NFL Network’s Albert Breer reported Monday that Martin shared texts and voice mails with his parents on Saturday, and turned them over Sunday to the Dolphins and the league, according to sources close to Martin and involved in the investigation. The evidence implicates Incognito and, to a lesser extent, Dolphins center Mike Pouncey. Breer reported that Incognito used a racial slur and threatened violence in one of the voice mails. The NFL and the Dolphins have heard the voice mail.
“Hey, wassup, you half (expletive) piece of (expletive),” according to a transcript obtained by Breer of an Incognito voice mail to Martin. “I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. I’ll (expletive) in your (expletive) mouth. I’m gonna slap your (expletive) mouth, I’m gonna slap your real mother across the face (laughter). (Expletive) you, you’re still a rookie. I’ll kill you.”
This comes on the heels of a video surfacing of an enraged Incognito at a bar with teammates, where he’s heard dropping the n-word again.
