The Miami Dolphins tried the spin cycle with the ongoing Jonathan Martin/Richie Incognito at their scheduled Wednesday press conference. Coach Joe Philbin played the “no comment” game when asked about reports the coaching staff asked Incognito to “toughen up” Martin, which led to the second-year pro leaving the team last week.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill expressed bewilderment, saying among other things, “If you’d asked Jon Martin a week before who best friend outside football was, he would have said Richie Incognito.”
As stated previously, expect plenty of exposes into NFL locker room culture to result from this story.
