Martin: Dolphins’ language made him feel trapped


Tackle Jonathan Martin says the persistence of vulgar language around the Miami Dolphins made him feel trapped, so he left the team before lodging allegations at the root of a bullying scandal. Martin’s comments, which aired Tuesday on “NBC Nightly News,” came in his first interview since the scandal broke. Martin left the Dolphins in October and alleged he was harassed daily by teammates, including guard Richie Incognito, who was suspended for the final eight games. New York attorney Ted Wells began a league investigation in November, and his report will be released after the Super Bowl. – Associated Press
