Jim Turner won't make trip to combine
Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Jim Turner will not make the trip to Indianapolis for the NFL combine, according to a report from the NFL Network.
Turner was recently implicated in the Ted Wells report on the culture in the Dolphins' locker room as someone who was aware of Jonathan Martin being bullied by Richie Incognito, John Jerry and Mike Pouncey.
The most striking part of the report involving Turner was the Christmas gag gift he gave to his linemen. Each one received female blow-up doll except one. He received a male blow-up doll. This was because the other linemen would often joke about this player's supposed sexuality.
In the Wells report, Turner couldn't recall the incident taking place, though the statement was found not credible based on other accounts.
The player was later reported to be Andrew McDonald, who is now with the Panthers. McDonald's agent, Brett Tessler, told the Orlando Sun-Sentinel that McDonald has no ill feeling toward the Dolphins and was disappointed that his name was associated with the Wells report.
