The Miami Dolphins’ locker room situation has been the media’s focus recently. 

As of Tuesday, Miami Dolphins OT Jonathan Martin has not returned to his team. After being hazed and bullied by his teammates, Martin vanished from sight.

The source appears to be OG Richie Incognito, a fellow offensive lineman with a reputation that has been in tatters for years. He has consistently been one of the dirtiest NFL players, and this situation reinforces such beliefs.

In April of 2013, Incognito delivered a voice mail message to Martin, jam-packed with slurs and threats. It will undoubtedly be a focal point in the NFL’s investigation.

Former players’ opinions vary on this situation. Some are taking the side that this level of hazing and bullying is extreme, while others state that it’s simply part of the NFL standard locker room.

The investigation will continue, but for now Martin is not with the team and Incognito remains suspended.
