Richie Incognito, Jonathan Martin reps to meet?

The NFL Players Association is making an attempt to open up the lines of communication between the camps of Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin.

NFL Media's Albert Breer reported that the NFLPA contacted the agents of Incognito and Martin on Wednesday morning to request a meeting, according to a source apprised of the plan.

The proposal calls for the meeting to occur in Florida with union chief DeMaurice Smith present.

Incognito was suspended indefinitely by the Miami Dolphins after the team was presented with evidence that Incognito sent abusive and racially insensitive messages to Martin via text message and voice mail.

The suspension was handed down six days after Martin abruptly left the team after an incident at the Dolphins' dining facility. NFL Media's Jeff Darlington reported last week that Martin sought treatment at a South Florida hospital immediately after leaving the team. He left the hospital a short time later and now is at home in California with his parents.

A local news affiliate tracked down Incognito on Tuesday as he left a doctor's appointment in Fort Lauderdale.

"You know what, I'm just trying to weather the storm right now," Incognito told WSVN-TV. "This will pass."
