Well it looks as though the last shoe has dropped in the Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin locker room saga. A few weeks ago, text messages were released that detailed the strange relationship between Incognito and Martin. From mutual name calling, to talks of prostitutes and drugs, it would seem that Martin and his teammate were just friends going at each other. But apparently those texts were only the tip of the iceberg and a small part of a bigger issue.
Martin repeatedly complained to his parents about the harassment he was receiving from not only Incognito, but also from his other offensive linemen teammates, Mike Pouncey and John Jerry, both of whom are black. The taunting involved everything from homophobic slurs, to being called the “n” word as well as other racial epithets. After the NFL report was released, Incognito couldn’t take the pressure of being taunted via Twitter, basically getting a taste of his own medicine, and deleted his account.
