  • Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin said in an interview with NBC’s Tony Dungy that he felt “trapped” after alleged repeated bullying by teammate Richie Incognito.

    “I’m a grown man. I’ve been in locker rooms,” Martin told Dungy. “One incident doesn’t bother me. It was the persistence.

    “I felt trapped, like I didn’t have a way to make it right. I thought it was best to remove myself from the situation.”

    Martin also claimed he was not the only victim of hazing in the Dolphins’ locker room.

    “There are other people that got it too,” Martin said. “I can’t say why I may have gotten more.”

    Martin told Dungy that he wants to return to the NFL, and the former coach believes the 24-year-old tackle will “get an opportunity.”

    Martin left the Dolphins in October amid allegations he was harassed by teammates, including Incognito. New York attorney Ted Wells began an investigation ordered by the NFL in November.
