Independent investigator Ted Wells announced Monday that he will interview Miami Dolphins players, coaches and staff as he continues his probe of the team's bullying scandal.
The NFL hired Wells, a lawyer, to look into claims that second-year offensive tackle Jonathan Martin was harassed and bullied by offensive guard Richie Incognito and other teammates.
Martin met with Wells for nearly eight hours on Friday.
"We look forward to meeting with Dolphins players, coaches and staff in order to get the facts and prepare a thorough and fair report," Wells said in a statement. "The Dolphins organization has been very helpful in arranging the interviews and urging their personnel to cooperate with the investigation. We have asked all Dolphins personnel to respect the process and avoid commenting on the investigation."
Martin left the team Oct. 28 and Incognito was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team Nov. 3. Incognito fired a grievance against the Dolphins last week.
NFL Media reported last week that Wells plans to focus his investigation on the Dolphins' locker room and speak to players most familiar with Martin and Incognito's relationship.
