Wells concludes interviews with Dolphins

The SportsXchange

NFL investigator Ted Wells concluded his interviews with members of the Miami Dolphins organization on Saturday night and said the process will continue "over the next few weeks."

Wells, appointed as an independent investigator into allegations that Miami guard Richie Incognito bullied teammate Jonathan Martin, said in a statement: "We have concluded our initial round of interviews with the Miami Dolphins and spent time with every player and coach, as well as key staff members and management. Our work will continue over the next few weeks. I want to thank (team owner) Stephen Ross, the Dolphins organization and its players, coaches and staff for their complete cooperation throughout this process."

The interviews with the Dolphins followed about eight hours each of interviews with the two primary figures, Martin and Incognito. He met with Wells in New York on Nov. 15 and reportedly interviewed Incognito on Thursday and Friday.

Most of the player interviews in Miami reportedly lasted about 15 minutes, while general manager Jeff Ireland and offensive line coach Jim Turner each reportedly met with Wells for about two hours.

At the Dolphins' request, the league is looking into the issues that led up to Martin walking away from the team Oct. 28, citing bullying from Incognito and other teammates.

Incognito was suspended Nov. 3 after reportedly having text messages and voicemails he left for Martin turned over to the team and the NFL as part of the investigation.
