Ex-Dolphin Jonathan Martin cheesing up with Miami strippers [photo]


A photo has surfaced of estranged Miami Dolphin O-lineman Jonathan Martin looking as if he’s loving life at Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami. Martin left the Dolphins following claims of bullying, specifically from teammate, Richie Incognito.

sources connected to the NFL investigation tell TMZ Sports … Martin had sent several text messages to Richie before the fallout making it clear he was VERY comfortable hanging out in strip clubs.

In fact, we’re told the picture (above) was taken at Tootsie’s during a team outing in the summer of 2013. Sources connected to the strip club tell us Martin was hanging out with roughly 15 to 30 teammates that night and appeared to be enjoying himself (just look at the grin and the stack of cash in his hand).

We’re also told … the text messages show Martin would OFTEN reach out to Incognito about his fondness for strip clubs, especially Tootsie’s … and never gave any hint that he was ever uncomfortable in that scene.

In one of the texts, sent in June 2013, Martin told Incognito he liked Tootsie’s so much, he planned to bring some visiting high school friends to the joint for a good time.

There’s more … we’re also told the text exchanges show a conversation in which Martin said he couldn’t make it out one night because “Mary Jane” had him glued to his couch.

The more that comes out from this situation, the more obvious it becomes that it should’ve been addressed internally. It’s complicated and the boundaries can be difficult to firmly establish when you allegedly feel one way but act in another.
