Incognito recently told his version of events in Fox interview.
Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has revealed that he will meet with offensive tackle Jonathan Martin to hear his side of the alleged bullying story.
The NFL headlines have been dominated by claims from Martin that he was both bullied and harassed by team-mate Richie Incognito and Ross has now refused to go by speculation and wants to speak face-to-face.
“I’m going to meet with Jonathan Martin face to face and hear what he has to say,” Ross said according to ESPN.
“Then, I will deal with it from there. So much has been said about a lot of different things.”
While Ross is unhappy with the negative media attention the franchise has received in recent weeks, he described the situation as a “nightmare” ahead of the Dolphins’ loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night.
It was the Bucs’ first win of the season and only served to add further misery to Miami’s current situation with Incognito recently revealing his side of the story in an interview with Fox.
The 30-year-old admitted that he sent graphic racial slurs and threats through voicemail and text messages, but insisted that his team-mate did the same back and it was a normal aspect of their friendship and the locker room culture.
However, Ross admitted that he was “appalled” after reading the reports and has since asked a group of former players to improve the culture within the Dolphins locker room.
The NFL are currently investigating the matter and Ross has praised coach Joe Philbin for his efforts in keeping the team focused during the tough time, and while Martin left the team on October 28 after a lunch-room incident there are reports suggesting he has no plans to return.
