Well this is pretty much unheard off. 24-year-old NFL man Jonathan Martin, who hails from a family who are practically geniuses, stands at 6 ft 5 in and weights over 300 pounds was a victim of harassment!
For those unaware of the issue at hand, Martin has been away from the Dolphins since October 30, when a report surfaced from Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer (via Pro Football Talk) describing Martin as “AWOL” due to a cafeteria incident involving his other teammates. Eventually details resulted in the indefinite suspension of vet guard Richie Incognito as the responsible for bullying the younger player!
Last year it was reported by TMZ
It’s the LAST tab you’d ever wanna pick up — a bill for a lavish steak dinner consumed by the heavyweights on the Miami Dolphins offensive line — but Monday night, several unlucky rookies did just that … and it cost ’em $7,400.
Richie Incognito ordered practically everything on the menu — including Wagyu beef, which runs $35 AN OUNCE … in addition to a full array of appetizers, expensive wines, and of course … lemon drop shots.
We’re told the rooks split the bill based on their salaries — which means starting right tackle Jonathan Martin paid the most.
Although the outing is seen as a bonding experience where it’s tradition for rookies to pay for the meals things between the two players were allegedly taken up a notch!
Martin’s life might be taken an unexpected turn but no one is saying this is the worst thing that could have happened to him. It is not necessarily a bad thing. Maybe he was one of those bullying victims awake at night with those feelings bottled up, withdrawn and reliving the same abuse over and over and now he has got the chance to break free from that situation and come out even stronger. And although his play has been up and down, there is little doubt that he could have plenty of great football ahead of him and many opportunities with the ladies!
We don’t know much about his taste in girls in fact we don’t know of any public relationships he might have been in, but we hope he has someone he can lean on during this difficult times.

We wish him the best during this transition time.
