NFL notebook: Incognito lashes out at Martin on Twitter
• Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito lashed out at teammate Jonathan Martin on Twitter on Wednesday, saying, “The truth is going to bury you and your entire ‘camp.’ You could have told the truth the entire time.” Incognito also wrote Martin told him he thought about committing suicide because he wasn’t playing well. “FACT: Jonathan Martin told me he thought about taking his own life in MAY 2013 b/c he wasn’t playing well. Told me he felt worthless,” Incognito said on Twitter. Incognito’s series of tweets directed at Martin and his representatives come as the NFL prepares to release a report on the Dolphins’ bullying case that could help clarify their relationship. Martin previously said he was harassed daily by Incognito and other teammates. He alleged their racial, aggressive and sexually charged comments played a role in his departure from the team Oct. 28.
