Like the rest of us, the Dolphins apparently need a second to digest the 144-page report from NFL investigator Ted Wells.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has put out a statement, effectively asking for a moment before they do anything else.
“We have just received the report from Ted Wells and will review it in detail before responding relative to the findings,” Ross said. “When we asked the NFL to conduct this independent review, we felt it was important to take a step back and thoroughly research these serious allegations.
“As an organization, we are committed to a culture of team-first accountability and respect for one another.“
Of course, the header for section 13 of the report — ”Coach Philbin and the Front Office Did Not Know About the Harassment” — doesn’t exactly speak to that commitment.
