If you “Tweet” and if you follow Richie Incognito then today was a fun filled reading day as the Miami Dolphins guard finally had enough. Incognito exploded into rants about Jonathan Martin and his agent Ken Zuckerman proclaiming the truth is “going to bury Martin”.
The Ted Wells investigation is due any day now. Apparently Incognito couldn’t wait anymore. Last week Incognito complained about the reports delay letting it be known that his career and livelihood was on the line. Today was far more brash and it’s unknown exactly what tripped him off.
“Dear Jon Martin…..” Incognito started. “The truth is going to bury you and your entire ‘camp’. You could have told the truth the entire time”
Incognito has been steadfast regarding his innocent in the ordeal and his “camp” released pages of texts between the two “friends”. Incognito said he was ready to move and that he had been dragged through the mud by his friend. While Martin himself has said nothing, his agent and attorney has linked information to the media through the course of the last few months. Martin who spoke with Tony Dungy in a taped interview refused to acknowledge his friendship with Incognito despite the pages of texts that said otherwise.
In what is a glaring accusation, Incognito also tweeted that Martin had contemplated suicide back in May citing his poor play. Incognito apologized to women for his language and took exception to Zuckerman releasing a voicemail to ESPN regarding Incognito’s use of the N-word. Incognito claimed that Zuckerman was trying to stir stuff up once again.
While Incognito signed off Twitter by leaving his attorney’s phone number this is far from over. Regardless of whether the Wells report exonerates Incognito or places blame squarely on his shoulder pads, Incognito is going to have a lot to say.
