Jonathan Martin Breaks his Silence

Jonathan Martin Breaks his Silence

Highlights from the Jonathan Martin interview with Tony Dungy on NBC's "Today" show. 

Martin and fellow offensive lineman Richie Incognito left the team mid-season, amid controversy and a so-called "bullying scandal" that rocked the entire NFL and the nationwide media.

Martin says he is not against "normal" rookie hazing...things like haircuts, but he told Dungy that once the hazing continued past his rookie season, he knew something was wrong.

He says he spoke to members of the Dolphins organization, but not head coach Joe Philbin.  He didn't give specifics about the alleged harassment because he didn't want to "snitch" on his teammates. 

Martin says comments included racial slurs and sexual comments that were made against his sister and mother, and that those made him uncomfortable. 

During his interview, Martin would not take any direct shots at Incognito, making it seem as though this was a larger issue, involving several players.

Meanwhile, an investigator will release details and results of the investigation into the scandal after the Superbowl.

Team owner Stephen Ross says he has already been filled in and doesn't expect to make any changes, other than the ones he has already made with the team.
