Martin initially met with Ted Wells in New York City on Nov. 15 to present his case for harassment and bullying charges against teammate Richie Incognito. Wells also spent a week at the Dolphins' training facility, interviewing every player and coach as well as several team executives.

The source says Wells was to meet with Martin on Thursday to present his findings from those interviews. The league is in its final stages of investigating and is expected to finish its report in the next few weeks.

In addition, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Wells also is expected to conduct a second round of interviews with Dolphins players in Miami next week. According to the source, one of those interviews will be with Incognito, who has been suspended by the team. The purpose of the second round of interviews, the source said, is so Wells can clarify some things.

Wells' report is likely to be submitted to commissioner Roger Goodell's office in a week to 10 days. An official in the league office indicated the timetable may be longer.

The Dolphins put Martin, who left the team abruptly in late October, on the non-football injury list Nov. 30, ending his season. The Dolphins have extended Incognito's suspension to six weeks -- until Dec. 16 -- but with pay until the league announces its findings.

Information from ESPN.com Dolphins reporter James Walker and The Associated Press was used in this report.
