Report: Dolphins players less than forthcoming with Ted Wells

Richie Incognito, Jonathan Martin AP

Ted Wells, the investigator appointed by the NFL to investigate the alleged harassment that led Jonathan Martin to leave the Dolphins and Richie Incognito to be suspended, issued a statement on Saturday thanking the team for its cooperation. But one report calls into question just how cooperative the players were.

Some Dolphins refused to cooperate at all, and others were less than forthcoming, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS. That suggests that Wells is going to have a tough time determining what actually happened between Incognito and Martin, both of whom spent several hours talking to Wells. If Incognito and Martin told Wells two different things, and if players aren’t being forthcoming about what they saw, it will be difficult for Wells to know whether Incognito or Martin is telling the truth.

Wells indicated that he’ll need a few more weeks to finish his investigation. The regular season ends five weeks from today. It’s entirely possible that Wells won’t wrap up his investigation until the season is over.

And, if players aren’t talking, it’s entirely possible that even after Wells wraps up his investigation, we won’t know what really transpired in the Dolphins’ locker room.

    Dolphins players: Hey 4 eyes, stop with the question and buy us all dinner.

    Good,

    locker rooms are one of the few sacred places left, along with cigar lounges, and barber shops.

    No one say a word.

    so basicly the players aren’t telling him what King Goodell wants to hear is what their saying.

    Everyone knows the rules when you get sent to the principals office. You don’t rat out your friends.

    Wells should take a hike

    Sounds like the Dolphins are bullying this investigator. The league will send in another investigator to investigate this investigation

    Good. These Dolphin players don’t owe Ted Wells anything.

    All this will do is convince the investigator that Martin’s allegations are true.

    At $1600 per hr, Wells aint going anywhere.

    If the league doesn’t isolate this to a Miami problem, it will become a league wide problem. The NFL has a wholesome image that is on the line. This lame excuse that the locker room is a place where the norms of civilized society are non-existent is ignorant to the nth. Contrary to the pronouncements of pro athletes and their defendants, the public has a good idea of what happens in a locker room. I would venture a guess that there are a lot of pro athletes post and present who do not agree with bad behavior in the locker room.

    Is this an NFL team or a prison yard? Grown men with FAMILIES act this way? Wow.

    Why are they covering for Incognito if he didn’t do anything wrong? I watch sports for entertainment, not bs drama. If Philbin did his job as a head coach and controlled his locker room this would not have happened. This is turning into a he said-he said situation that was avoidable if Philbin was competent as a leader. I’m glad I’m not a Dolphins fan. You don’t seem to have winners running your team.

    The NFL is a place of work and that includes the locker room. It is subject to the same rules as your lunch room or board room. Any of the players who do not cooperate should be thrown out of the league for life.

    Cowards keep quiet

    Good for the players. Locker room is their business aNd no one else’s

    Martin broke the code. The man code. His team is backing incognito because they know what Martin is all about already

    I am tired of the fools who keep saying “locker rooms are one of the few places where decorum don’t hold and where you can say anything”. That’s a lot of BS. Just plain stupid argument. If it’s wrong, it’s wrong NO MATTER WHERE IT WAS SAID!
