    Default 6-foot-5, 312-pound Miami Dolphin player leaves team due to bullying & teasing...

    Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin loves playing football.

    But what a source told FOX Sports was an abusive environment that developed during Martin's 1 1/2 seasons with the Dolphins led to him taking a personal leave of absence to spend time with his family.

    Martin left Dolphins headquarters on Monday when finally reaching his limit with the persistent bullying and teasing from some teammates that has plagued him since joining Miami as a 2012 second-round draft choice. As first reported by FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer, the latest taunt – a group of players stood up and left when he tried joining them for lunch – led to Martin getting up himself and walking out the door.

    It's believed the Dolphins were aware that the cruel actions of some teammates toward Martin went well beyond the customary hazing sometimes given to NFL rookies and youngsters, the source said. Martin experienced some of that when the Dolphins appeared on the 2012 season of HBO's Hard Knocks
    i'm guessing there's a lot more to this story. I give the kid credit for saying "screw this - I don't need this gig so bad to put up with morons making my life difficult". He went to Stanford and both his parents are lawyers, I reckon he'll be just fine.

    I think that if all is ever revealed, this will be a much more complex story.

    It is said he is pursuing mental health counseling, so obviously he understands that he has some problems to deal with..good for him for stepping off the merry go round to get help

    hopefully this will have a better outcome than OJ Murdock, Jovan Belcher and countless other young players who went off the rail one way or the other

    guy is only 23 so hopefully he'll have time to straighten out his head

    The Dolphins have indefinitely suspended LG Richie Incognito as the league investigates his alleged treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin.

    Incognito himself confirmed the suspension to NFL.com and FOX Sports. It's a sign the team is taking Martin's allegations seriously, and potentially leaves the Dolphins without two starting linemen for Week 10. At this point, we're likely to see Martin back before Incognito, whose history of off-the-field issues and on-the-field shenanigans is working against him.
    apparently the team also has issues with how "that pussy" Jonathan Martin was treated.

    Goofing around with a teammate is one thing. Getting someone to reach a breaking point is on thing all in another.

    It will be interesting to hear what comes of all of this.

    The Jonathan Martin situation continues to unfurl and escalate, with the latest allegations turning what seemed to be a simple case of bullying into perhaps much more.

    Multiple sources told FOX Sports the Miami Dolphins and the NFL Players Association have been told guard Richie Incognito sent Martin text messages and left him voicemails that are both threatening and racially charged in nature. Sources said those messages will be shared with the league as part of the investigation.


    This new information resulted in the Dolphins changing their tone from claiming the organization was not notified of any bullying to saying the club would ask the NFL for help in investigating a matter the organization takes "very seriously" and finally to suspending Incognito indefinitely for "conduct detrimental to the team."

    The explosive information concerning racially charged threats means the league is not dealing with harassment here. This is an alleged hate crime.

    The Dolphins declined specific comment and deferred to the league office, which is handling the investigation. A league spokesman had no comment on the specifics of the case, saying only the NFL will conduct a "thorough review" of the situation.

    Martin has been away from the team since walking out of the facility following a prank played by his fellow offensive linemen last Monday in the cafeteria. The team listed Martin on the injury report with an unspecified "illness." FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reported Martin was receiving treatment. Glazer stated on FOX NFL Sunday "there's a lot more to the story with Jonathan Martin personally than meets the eye."


    Earlier Sunday, the Dolphins had released a statement refuting reports Martin had left the team over bullying.

    "The notion of bullying is based on speculation and has not been presented to us as a concern from Jonathan or anyone else internally," the statement read in part.

    Meanwhile, Incognito took to Twitter to criticize the speculation that he played a part in Martin leaving the team. "I want my named CLEARED," he wrote in one of several tweets defending himself against the allegations.

    But by Sunday evening, the Dolphins had suspended Incognito, saying in a statement: "We believe in maintaining a culture of respect for one another, and as a result we believe this decision is in the best interest of the organization at this time."

    Martin, a second-round draft pick out of Stanford in 2012, started the first six games at left tackle this season before moving to right tackle for the Oct. 27 loss at New England. Tyson Clabo replaced him in Thursday night's overtime win against Cincinnati.

    If, IF he sent racist texts and voicemails to a fellow player (not to mention a fellow human being AND teammate), I hope he is cut.

    What a dope.

    It's a terrible thing to do. Teammates should never be that way to each other. That's just bad news.

    Apparently Incognito's dad got involved, too?
