NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday on NFL Network's "NFL GameDay Morning" that -- barring the situation changing drastically in South Beach -- the offensive tackle does not feel comfortable rejoining the locker room, according to sources who have been in regular contact with Martin.
DeMaurice Smith, executive director of the NFL Players Association, told NFL Media's Jeff Darlington on Sunday that the NFLPA is taking "a hard look" at the situation as information comes in. Smith told Darlington, "We take our job seriously about protecting and insuring that the league and the clubs provide a safe workplace for our players."
The league has offered its assistance to all involved, and the Dolphins, on Sunday, released a statement on the matter:
"As an organization, we take any accusations of player misconduct seriously. The notion of bullying is based on speculation and has not been presented to us as a concern from Jonathan or anyone else internally. The reports that the NFLPA is investigating our players are inaccurate. Additionally, the NFL offered its assistance during this time, which we appreciated and gladly accepted. We will continue to make Jonathan's health and well-being a focus as we do with all of our players."
