Dolphins_Jeff_Ireland_1There’s a new twist in the situation involving Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito and this twist involves Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland.

Before Martin left the team on Oct. 28, Martin’s agent, Rick Smith, called Ireland and let him know about the situation involving Incognito. Ireland’s solution to the bullying problem? He told Smith that Martin should ‘punch’ Incognito, according to If true, that means Ireland basically suggested that one player on his team should assault another player on his team.

The punch never happened though, Martin decided to leave the team instead of physically confronting Incognito.
