As expected, Dolphins guard Richie Incognito, who was suspended indefinitely earlier this month for conduct detrimental to the team, filed a grievance against the Dolphins to recover his lost weekly salary of $235,294.12.

In that grievance, Incognito's legal team takes aim at Jonathan Martin, who left the team last month amid allegations that Incognito bulled him, and Martin's attorney, David Cornwell, reports's Albert Breer.

"If any conduct has been detrimental to the team, it is the manner in which Mr. Martin's representatives, including Mr. (David) Cornwell on behalf of his client, have elected to vilify Mr. Incognito and the entire Dolphins organization in the court of public opinion," the grievance began.
Incognito also asked the neutral arbitrator, Jonathan Marks, for an expedited hearing, which is tentatively scheduled for Thursday in South Florida.

Last Friday, Martin met for eight hours with Ted Wells, who was appointed by the NFL to investigate the Dolphins locker room culture, but the players' union was excluded from that meeting.

When apprised of the contents of Incognito's grievance, Cornwell issued this statement:

"Jonathan and his family decided that it was in Jonathan's best interest to be represented by an independent counsel of his choice. As Jonathan said yesterday, his discussion with Ted Wells was frank and detailed. I was concerned that Jonathan's ability to be frank and detailed would be compromised if there were too many people in the room. We made it clear that our decisions in no way -- in intent or effect -- interfere with the NFLPA discharging its important duties as the exclusive bargaining representative of all players."
