One day after Miami Dolphins offensive guard Richie Incognito was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, the NFLPA has released the following statement on the alleged bullying that took place between Incognito and second-year offensive tackle Jonathan Martin.
“We expect that the NFL and its clubs create a safe and professional workplace for all players and that owners, executives, coaches and players should set the best standards and examples. It is the duty of this union to hold the clubs and teams accountable for safety and professionalism in the workplace.
As the representative organization of all players, the NFLPA will insist on a fair investigation for all involved. We will continue to remain in contact with the impacted players, their representatives and player leadership.”
