Lawyer for Richie Incognito releases statement on Wells report

Richie Incognito's lawyer, Mark Schamel, has released a statement on the findings of the Ted Wells report. The report, which was released this morning, investigated allegations of harassment and bullying by Incognito toward Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin.

The NFL released the Ted Wells report today, following a nearly four-month investigation into the Miami Dolphins locker room, specifically looking at allegation from tackle Jonathan Martin that he was harassed and bullied, primarily by guard Richie Incognito.  The 142-page report supports many of Martin's claims, finding Incognito, center Mike Pouncey, and guard John Jerry conducted a pattern of harassment directed toward Martin.

Incognito's lawyer, Mark Schamel, released the following statement after the Wells Report was released:

"Mr. Wells' NFL report is replete with errors.  The facts do not support a conclusion that Jonathan Martin's mental health, drug use, or on-field performance issues were related to the treatment by his teammates.

"It is disappointing that Mr. Wells would have gotten it so wrong, but not surprising. The truth, as reported by the Dolphins players and as shown by the evidence, is that Jonathan Martin was never bullied by Richie Incognito or any member of the Dolphins Offensive line. We are analyzing the entire report and will release a thorough analysis as soon as it is ready."
