Could Jonathan Martin actually play for the Miami Dolphins in 2014? It's possible, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

The embattled offensive tackle wants to play in 2014, and it's not outside the realm of possibility he continues his career in South Beach, Rapoport reported Wednesday on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access," per several sources close to Martin.

Since the flames of controversy ignited following Martin's departure from the team in October, it had seemed to be a long shot that he would ever play another down for the 'Fins. However, the atmosphere has changed in Miami. Former general manager Jeff Ireland is out, it's doubtful Richie Incognito will return, and the locker-room culture likely will be transformed in the wake of bullying accusations. In fact, Martin's people have been in contact with the Dolphins on some level over the past couple of weeks, per Rapoport.
