DAVIE, Fla. — The NFL Players Association will conduct its own investigation into the Miami Dolphins’ bullying scandal, a person familiar with the situation said Wednesday. The person confirmed the investigation to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the union hadn’t announced its plans. Richard Smith, outside counsel for the union in the New Orleans Saints bounty case, will investigate tackle Jonathan Martin‘s allegations that he was harassed by teammates, including guard Richie Incognito, who has been suspended. Smith will examine the roles of coach Joe Philbin, his staff and Miami management, although it’s unknown whether they will be willing to meet with him. NFL special investigator Ted Wells has been questioning players, coaches and staff at the Dolphins’ complex this week. Wells was appointed by commissioner Roger Goodell after Dolphins owner Stephen Ross asked the league to look into the case. Martin spent nearly seven hours with Wells on Friday in New York. Wells will also interview Incognito, who was suspended Nov. 3 and has filed a grievance against the Dolphins seeking to rejoin the team. Martin abruptly left the team Oct. 28, and the case has raised questions about the team’s locker room culture.Filed under: Associated Press, Headlines, Miami Dolphins, NFL
