Richie Incognito, a guard, was suspended by the team Nov. 3 for misconduct related to the treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin, who abruptly left the Dolphins late last month to receive help for emotional issues.
The United States Justice Department has joined an investigation into allegations of anti-Semitic harassment at an Orange County school.
“It’s sort of blowing up my Twitter feed,” Martin — the reporter, not the football player — said Tuesday on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show.
The Dolphins’ offensive tackle would like to play football again, ESPN reported, but he doesn’t want to do so in Miami. He’s likely finished for the 2013 season.
His voice rising, the Hall of Famer gave an impassioned take on the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin bullying controversy Sunday, specifically in regard to the reported acceptance of racial slurs among Dolphins teammates.
Tyler Clementi’s mother, Jane, and brother, James, linked arm in arm with the walkers and made their way across the span for the first time since Tyler jumped from the bridge in 2010.

The reason that the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin incident will not go away any time soon is that everyone can relate to it.
Antrel Rolle clarified that he’s against bullying, and that Martin is not as much to blame as Incognito. He did maintain, however, that Martin “does take some accountability.”
We should be disgusted by anyone who condones Incognito, excuses Incognito or ignores Incognito. We should be disgusted by anyone who blames Martin, teases Martin or trivializes Martin.
You’ve seen the heartbreaking stories, bullies pushing kids to suicide. Now there are calls for the parents of those bullies to pay.
“Last year, with what I went through, I’m still sticking to my story,” Amukamara said. “That wasn’t bullying at all. That was just fun in the locker room.”
“Richie Incognito, is he wrong? Absolutely,” Rolle told Joe & Evan. “But I think the other guy is just as much to blame because he’s allowed it to happen.”
