Richie Incognito report reveals disturbing details

New, comments

The third party report on the Richie Incognito, Jon Martin situation on the Miami Dolphins has been released and has some disturbing details.

USA TODAY Sports

It's unlikely the Jacksonville Jaguars would be interested in Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito in free agency, but after the full release of the independent Ted Wells investigation into the matter, I would write it off completely.

From the press release:

The Report finds that the assistant trainer repeatedly was the object of racial slurs and other racially derogatory language; that the other offensive lineman was subjected to homophobic name-calling and improper physical touching; and that Martin was taunted on a persistent basis with sexually explicit remarks about his sister and his mother and at times ridiculed with racial insults and other offensive comments.

I haven't completed reading the full report just yet, but from what I've gone through it sounds like a case of three players going over the top after a player who's clearly battled with depression for sometime, having been bullied back in middle and high school.

It's definitely an odd situation where not a lot of Dolphins players, coaches and staff look very good.
