Former Miami Dolphins NFL tackle Jonathan Martin made news in 2013 for alleging constant harassment by teammates, singling out guard Richie Incognito. Now, in his first interview since that firestorm, Martin says the bullying left him feeling “trapped like I didn’t have a way to make it right. And it came down to the point where, you know, I thought it was best just to remove myself from the situation.” Martin said the bullying was more than the usual locker room hazing, especially on the part of Incognito.
