According to various reports, including one from Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports, Richie Incognito has been bullying second-year player Jonathan Martin throughout the season and preseason, and that's part of the reason for Martin leaving the team.
There are several instances of threats as well, the sources said, and overall disturbing exchanges, including one in which Incognito refers to defecating in Martin's mouth.
Incognito also made reference to tracking down members of Martin's family and harming them in the texts as well, according to a source."
Incognito went after the media on Twitter yesterday, lashing out at various news organizations, who had all basically reported the same thing:
Incognito's rant certainly doesn't make things look any better for him. Not only is he essentially being accused of bullying a teammate, he's basically bullying the media whose job it is to report on the situation.
Not only is it looking pretty bad for Incognito, it looks like his dad might be taking to Dolphins message boards in defense of his son, and revealing information about Martin that is certainly supposed to be private.
This is a bad situation for the Dolphins, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see some coaches lose their jobs, as well as Incognito's career end after this season, when he'll be a free agent. It's hard to believe that teams would be interested in the kind of locker room cancer that he seems to be.
UPDATE: Via Pro Football Talk, here's an excerpt from Incognito's voicemail that he left for Martin:
