With the NFL investigating the conduct of Dolphins guard Richie Incognito (and possibly others) against Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin, the NFLPA has issued a statement outlining its expectations.
“We expect that the NFL and its clubs create a safe and professional workplace for all players and that owners, executives, coaches and players should set the best standards and examples,” the union said in a statement issued on Tuesday morning. “It is the duty of this union to hold the clubs and teams accountable for safety and professionalism in the workplace.
“As the representative organization of all players, the NFLPA will insist on a fair investigation for all involved. We will continue to remain in contact with the impacted players, their representatives and player leadership.”
The NFL won’t say anything about the investigation, other than that it will be conducted by Adolpho Birch, NFL senior V.P. of labor law and policy.
