The bullying of Martin was made into a huge topic of discussion over the past year or so, and much of it was centered around text messages between the two players.

ESPN's Adam Schefter was one of the many reporters who discussed some pretty incendiary texts from Incognito to Martin, and that tended to turn the general public against Incognito.

After reviewing the actual text messages, it seems to be nothing more than some irreverent banter between friends.

Is it a bit coarse? Yes, absolutely. But that's common between men in their 20s and early 30s.

There also doesn't appear to be much push-back from Martin. If he was really so upset about his treatment, it would be extremely hard to tell from the messages.
