Incognito reportedly feels 'betrayed' by Martin

Indefinitely suspended Miami Dolphins offensive guard Richie Incognito feels "shocked and betrayed" by teammate Jonathan Martin, according to ESPN.

Per the report, Incognito considered Martin a friend.

Now, Incognito and the Dolphins are under investigation after he allegedly left racially-charged and threatening voice mails on Martin's phone. Martin has left the team to see counseling.

Both players' future with the Dolphins is uncertain.

"It's probably a combination of totally blindsided and a bit betrayed," the source said of Incognito. "He's shocked. He can't believe this happened and thinks it probably could have been avoided."

Per the report, Incognito regarded himself as a "tough-love older brother" to Martin.

In the voice mail, though, Incognito referred to Martin as a "half n----- piece of s---," and added, "F--- you, you're still a rookie. I'll kill you."

However, Martin played the voice mail for teammates and laughed about it, according to Dolphins players.
