Ted Wells interviews every Dolphin, still has weeks of work ahead

Incognito AP

Ted Wells, the NFL-appointed investigator who’s looking into allegations that the Miami Dolphins’ locker room was a hostile work environment for Jonathan Martin, has interviewed every player and coach on the team.

But that doesn’t mean his investigation is over. Or even close to over.

Wells released a statement on Saturday night confirming that he has now spoken to every player and coach, but he also said he has weeks of work left to do.

“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,” Wells said. “Our work will continue over the next few weeks. I want to thank Stephen Ross, the Dolphins organization and its players, coaches and staff for their complete cooperation throughout this process.”

This process will be a long one. With only five more weeks in the regular season and Wells saying he still needs a “few weeks” to finish his work, it’s entirely possible that this investigation won’t be wrapped up until the season is over.

    EVERY player? If I’m on the competition committee, I’m drafting a rule change right now for the next meeting. This is insanity. How can a team compete under these circumstances?

    This sounds like a very expensive investigation.

    Irsay passed on Martin because he knew there would be an investigation into whichever team drafted him.

    “This sounds like a very expensive investigation.”

    Thats because its potentially a very expensive public relations problem.

    May have to “interview” players who are avoiding him on the sideline. They don’t want to get in trouble mentioning (bulling) a players sexual orientation regarding cheerleaders, fat or skinny.

    This is small potatoes for Ted Wells compared to his defenses of philip morris and scooter libby.

    From Wells’s point of view, that’s probably the whole point. Or at least most of it.

    If he’s charging his usual rate, assume somewhere between $1,300 and $1,500 an hour. Then figure another $675 an hour for of-counsel types to sit around and watch him work.

    By the time this gets done, Paul Weiss (Wells’s firm) will probably have a million-dollar bill.

    Overkill Teddy boy, hello. And weeks of work to do??? Somebody’s getting paid by the hour!!!

    Hey Teddy, are you a millionaire? Just curious…

    I even heard that he interviewed Dan Marino, Mark Duper and Mark Clayton.

    Meanwhile, the Steelers march.

    Life is grand when you have an admirable trophy case.

    Aaand we march.

    It seems like the word “long” is never far away from the word “process”.

    The NFl that I grew up loving is no longer gone forever due to the “long process’ of the progressives.

    That guy picked on me………!

    A waste of money is an understatement. What is he going to find out, that Jonathon Martin isn’t fit for NFL football??

    SNL should bring in Ace Ventura and spoof this.
