Miami Dolphins coaches reportedly asked Richie Incognito to toughen up teammate Jonathan Martin, the Sun Sentinel newspaper of Fort Lauderdale reports.
The paper cites sources that say that communication took place when Martin skipped two days of the team’s Organized Team Activity Program. The paper reports, “Incognito was encouraged by coaches to make a call that would ‘get him into the fold,’ one source said.”
Sources tell the paper Incognito may have taken those orders too far. And now, for the first time since his suspension, Incognito is breaking his silence about being at the center of the bullying scandal.
The Dolphins can suspend Incognito without pay for up to four weeks, which could cost him close to $1 million, CBS News’ Mark Strassmann reported on “CBS This Morning.”
