It was a long seven hours for the for Jonathan Martin as the football star described his side of the story on the locker room harassment incident for the NFL counsel who will be investigating his claims.
According to The Huffington Post, Martin said in a public statement for the press:
“Although I went into great detail with Mr. Ted Wells and his team, I do not intend to discuss this matter publicly at this time,” Martin said. “This is the right way to handle the situation.
“Beyond that, I look forward to working through the process and resuming my career in the National Football League.”
We don’t know for sure of what is going to happen between Martin and teammate Richie Incognito after the alleged incident, but it looks like both players are hopeful of keeping a spot in the league.
There are said to be meetings that will discuss future locker-room culture, but for now many players believe that nothing needs to be changed.
Incognito has acknowledged leaving a voicemail for Martin in April in which he used a racial slur, threatened to kill his teammate and threatened to slap Martin’s mother. Although he says he regrets the racist and profane language, he says it’s apart of the culture of locker-room “brotherhood,” not bullying.
