According to an independent investigation into the Dolphins’ bullying scandal, Jonathan Martin, 24, was a constant target of verbal harassment and ridicule in Miami’s locker room. As a result, the 2012 second-round pick became depressed, twice contemplated suicide and considered leaving the NFL after his rookie season.
Martin left the Dolphins after seven regular-season games last year and his exit made the NFL’s locker-room culture a national conversation. On Tuesday, Martin said his two months with the 49ers, who acquired for a conditional 2015 seventh-round pick, have been positive.
“It’s been great,” he said. “I’ve got no complaints. It’s a competitive environment, but everyone takes care of each other. So it’s been fun.”
It will be interesting to see how Martin does in San Francisco, but it seems he is doing well now.
