Embattled Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito believed he was friends with teammate Jonathan Martin and feels “shocked” and “betrayed” by Martin’s claims of harassment, a source with knowledge of the situation told ESPN.com Friday night.
Incognito was suspended indefinitely last Sunday for conduct detrimental to the team after Martin presented evidence — including threatening voice mails and text messages — to the Dolphins, the NFL and the NFL Players Association. The Dolphins are currently under investigation by the NFL, while both Martin and Incognito are away from the team.
“It’s probably a combination of totally blindsided and a bit betrayed,” the source said of Incognito’s current state. “He’s shocked. He can’t believe this happened and thinks it probably could have been avoided.”
