The NFL is scheduled to meet with embattled Miami Dolphins right tackle Jonathan Martin Friday. This meeting has been planned for about a week and will go a long way to determining the findings of the league’s investigation into bullying and harassment accusations against teammate Richie Incognito.
What will NFL lead investigator Ted Wells ask Martin behind closed doors?
Here are several unanswered questions that remain:
How would you describe your rapport with Incognito? Did you consider him a friend?
In what ways did you feel bullied and harassed by Incognito?
What was your level of communication with Incognito?
Who were the multiple teammates lawyer David Cornwell claimed you had issues with?
Describe the “malicious physical attack” by a teammate mentioned in Cornwell’s statement?
Was Miami’s coaching staff aware of your issues before you left the team on Oct. 28?
How would you describe your standing in the locker room?
How would you describe the Dolphins’ football culture?
Were racial slurs and vulgar language the norm in Miami’s locker room?
Would you come back to play for the Dolphins? Why or why not?
These are just a several questions Wells could ask Martin during their face-to-face meeting. The NFL, the Dolphins and the general public want the truth in this Incognito-Martin saga. Martin will get to tell his side to NFL investigators on Friday.
