Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin wants to return to football, according to an ESPN report, but feels like he cannot do it with the Dolphins. He will likely try to get a release from Miami. According to an ESPN report, Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin feels like he cannot return to the team, despite wanting to continue playing football. Sources have told ESPN that Martin is "relieved" to be away from the franchise, where he feels like he was "picked on" for a year-and-a-half. Martin, the source said, tried to befriend his teammates in an effort to end what he feels was harassment. Martin left the team two weeks ago, then alleged player misconduct toward the Dolphins, specifically guard Richie Incognito. The Dolphins suspended Incognito after receiving the initial allegations. Yesterday, an interview between Incognito and Fox Sports' Jay Glazer aired, with Incognito stressing that he and Martin always communicated in a crude method, insulting each other. Incognito said, while the word choices were wrong, he and Martin were friends and he wishes he had known Martin was hurting.
