Miami Dolphins teammates Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin finally agreed on something.

Incognito was accused of bullying and harassing Martin, but he denied those allegations. After several months of criticism, over 1,000 text messages between both men were recently released to the public, and both men engaged in vulgar exchanges. Each player is still waiting for the NFL to release its findings from an independent investigation.

Despite their difference, both men expressed their approval of Michael Sam revealing he is gay prior to the NFL draft.

The majority of NFL players have voiced their approval, and both men have something to gain by their public support of Sam.

Incognito and Martin are not expected to play for the Dolphins this season. The vote of approval could help convince teams neither player will be a locker room distraction in the future. It also gets people to talk about something else other than the alleged incidents in Miami.

Martin and Incognito did not get along, but at least they agree on how Sam should be viewed by all NFL players.
