AP source: Dolphins' Martin talks to investigator
(AP) - Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin met Thursday in Los Angeles with NFL special investigator Ted Wells for a second round of questioning about the team's bullying scandal, a person familiar with the situation said.
The person confirmed the meeting to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.
Martin was first interviewed by Wells for nearly seven hours Nov. 15 in New York. Wells then spent the week of Nov. 18 interviewing Dolphins players, coaches and staff in South Florida, and also met with suspended guard Richie Incognito.
Wells is expected to meet again with some Dolphins players before issuing a report. Martin alleges he was harassed daily by teammates, including Incognito, who has been suspended since Nov. 3.
Martin, a second-year pro from Stanford, has been with family in California undergoing counseling for emotional issues. Last week the Dolphins put him on the reserve/non-football illness list, ending his season.
When Martin abruptly left the team Oct. 28, the Dolphins had lost four consecutive games to fall to 3-4, and the scandal threatened to sink their season. But they're now 6-6 and in contention for an AFC wild-card berth going into Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.
Wells will determine the role of coach Joe Philbin, his staff and Dolphins management in the case, which inspired a national debate about workplace bullying.
