Dolphins ask for 'objective' review on Jonathan Martin case

The Miami Dolphins announced that offensive tackle Jonathan Martin has filed a grievance in regards to player misconduct in the locker room.

"We received notification today from Jonathan’s representation about allegations of player misconduct," the Dolphins said in a statement. "We are taking these allegations very seriously and plan to review the matter further. We have also reached out to the NFL and asked them to conduct an objective and thorough review. As an organization, we are committed to a culture of team-first accountability and respect for one another.”

This stems from reports indicating Martin was bullied by Dolphins teammates, specifically fellow lineman Richie Incognito.

Martin left the team earlier this week and it's unknown when, or if, he'll return.
