Richie Incognito’s lawyer says Jonathan Martin’s text were just as vulgar
I cannot wait until next week to see what the NFL rules in the Richie Incognito case, because if the statement made by his attorney is true, Jonathan Martin could be just as at fault as Richie.
“The coarse and unacceptable comments and text messages that were sent to Jonathan Martin were of the same poor taste as those sent by him,” attorney Mark Schamel said. “All of these communications were provided to Ted Wells and the NFL investigation. What they show is banter between friends, not bullying.”
While the league is expected to release its report on the bullying case at some point after the Super Bowl, the NFLPA, also nearing the end of its own probe, says Martin refused to speak with attorney Richard Smith, who the union retained in November to interview witnesses and examine the Dolphins management’s role that led to Martin leaving the team.
