Miami Dolphins player Richie Incognito is suspected of bullying another teammate
Allegations of bullying has Miami Dolphins player Richie Incognito speaking out.
Ritchie Incognito is speaking out for the first time about the firestorm unleashed by his alleged bullying of former Miami Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin.
Incognito says, "You can ask anybody in the Miami Dolphins locker room, who had Jon Martin's back the absolute most? And they will undoubtedly tell you, me."
In an interview with Fox Sport's Jay Glazer, the suspended player admits calling Martin the "n" word and leaving this voicemail message.
Incognito states, "When I see that voicemail, I'm embarrassed by my actions. But what I want people to know is, the way Jonathan and the rest of the offensive line and how our teammates how we communicate, it's vulgar, it's not right.
How do you expect anybody in America to believe you're not a racist?
"It sounds like I'm a racist pig, it sounds like I'm a meathead, I am not a racist. And to judge me by that one word is wrong," says Icongnito.
Incognito was on the offensive claiming Martin once threatened to kill his family in a text message, but dismissed it as locker room culture.
The two reportedly exchanged more than 1100 text messages. Incognito describes the last text message just four days after Martin left the team.
Incognito said, "And he texted me and said I don't blame you guys I blame some stuff in the locker room, I blame the culture. I blame what was going on around me.
"This isn't an issue about bullying this is an issue of mine and John's relationship."
Incognito said he would apologize to Martin and his family if they thought his behavior was at all malicious.
