Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin allegedly sent guard Richie Incognito a text message four days after he left the team saying he doesn’t blame Incognito for his situation.

Incognito, who blames NFL locker-room culture for his behavior, said a week before Martin left the team he sent him a text saying he was going to kill his entire family.

Incognito discussed his situation with Fox Sports on its NFL Pre-Game Show. Incognito spoke to NFL Insider Jay Glazer on Saturday in Los Angeles.

Incognito says he knows language he used in texts and voicemails to Martin "are not right." Incognito said that "what I want people to know is, the way Jonathan and the rest of the offensive line and how our teammates, how we communicate, it’s vulgar.”

The Dolphins are the focus of an NFL investigation into bullying and harassment charges stemming from Martin leaving the club Oct. 28, reportedly to seek treament for emotional distress. Widely circulated was a voicemail from Incognito to Martin laced with the profanity, including use of the N-word, and a threat of murder.

Incognito continued to deflect the blame for his actions throughout the interview by saying that what went on in the locker room and his personal relationship with Martin were private matters taken out of context, while also admitting his use of his language was inappropriate, particularly outside of football.

“It’s thrown around a lot," Incognito said of the derogatory word for a black person. "It’s a word that I’ve heard Jon use a lot ... and I’m not saying that it’s right for when I did it on a voicemail. There’s a lot of colorful words thrown around the locker room that we don’t use every day in life.
