Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin spoke with the league's independent investigator Ted Wells in New York City for about seven hours on Friday to discuss the much-debated bullying case involving teammate Richie Incognito.
Then Martin spoke to the media afterwards for about seven seconds, per Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports.
Martin: "I do not intend to discuss this matter publicly at this time. ... This is the right way to handle this matter." Ballgame.

So there you have it. Martin isn't talking, at least not for now, and we have yet to hear where he stands on the issue, his status as an NFL player or what he thinks of Incognito or the rest of his Dolphins teammates. There were rumors of a Martin video to be released this week, but that has yet to surface.
Wells' investigation will continue, and he might not have a full report issued on Martin, Incognito and the actions of their Dolphins teammates and coaches until December. We could be going cold on this story for a little bit.
Certainly that will disappoint a great many of you.
