NFL Players Association release statement regarding Miami Dolphins responsibility in Martin-Incognito incident

Roger Goodell, DeMaurice Smith

The NFL Players Association has released a statement regarding the Miami Dolphins locker room climate stemming from the accusations that o-lineman,  Richie Incognito was harassing teammate, Jonathan Martin.

The NFL Players Association has a unique scenario on its hands. The NFLPA’s job is to look after the players best interests. The situation that allegedly took place in the Dolphins locker room was between two players. The union could wind up having to defend Incognito should the Dolphins follow through and cut ties with the offensive lineman and try to void his salary. In the case where they’ll also be representing the victim, Martin, as well, who I’m sure has no desire to return to a team that he feels allowed this issue to linger.
