After nearly four months, the Ted Wells report into the Miami Dolphins and the allegations of player misconduct brought by tackle Jonathan Martin was released today.  The report found that Martin was subject to a pattern of harassment from offensive linemen Richie Incognito, John Jerry, and Mike Pouncey, ranging from racial slurs to sexual comments about Martin's mother and sister.

Today, Martin's agent, Kenny Zuckerman, called NFL.com's Ian Rapoport to discuss Martin's future in the NFL:

"Jon called me on Wednesday, said he ‘can't wait to play again. I'll play anywhere for anyone," Zuckerman told Rapoport.  When asked if Martin has dealt with his emotional issues, Zuckerman replied, "He has taken the necessary steps to get back on the field."

The Dolphins will likely not be the team that welcomes Martin into the fold next year.  The real question is, will Miami be able to get anything in return for their 2012 second round draft pick via a trade, or will they be forced to release him?
