Dolphins owner says he does not expect Martin, Incognito to return

DAVIE, Fla., Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Miami Dolphins owner Steve Ross said in an interview he does not expect Richie Incognito or Jonathan Martin to play for his team again.

Talking with NBC football analyst and former Indianapolis Colts Coach Tony Dungy, Ross said an investigation by the National Football League into the details of Martin's departure from the team and Incognito's eight-game suspension will be released after the Super Bowl.

Martin, the Dolphins' starting offensive tackle, claimed the team created a hostile work environment. Several days later the team suspended Incognito, its starting left guard since 2009, as reports surfaced he sent vulgar and racial text messages to Martin.

The interview with Ross is scheduled to be broadcast Wednesday evening, but in a portion aired Tuesday, Ross, when asked if Martin or Incognito will ever again play for the Dolphins, answered, "I don't think so."

He quickly modified his statement because Martin's contract has two more years to run, the South Florida Sun sentinel said Wednesday.

"One (Incognito) is a free agent, and the other one (Martin) is on our roster," Ross said.
