Unless you slept in really, really late Sunday, you probably heard all about Richie Incognito's interview with Fox Sports' Jay Glazer and how the suspended Dolphins guard expressed regret for leaving racial slurs on a voice mail for Jonathan Martin, how his actions toward Martin were done out of love, and how he would hug Martin if given the chance.

Whether you believe any of that, it now sounds as if Martin has something to say, as well.

The second-year tackle, who's seeking counseling in California, will release a video statement, perhaps as soon as this week, according to Fox Sports.

"The source said Martin won't get into a point-counterpoint with Incognito; rather, any statement Martin makes will be designed to explain his mindset and why he handled the situation by leaving the Miami Dolphins' facility when Incognito and other players played a prank on him," writes Mike Garafolo.

Reportedly, the statement won't feature an interviewer, leaving us to believe Martin will be the only one doing the talking. Which would be a change since the public hasn't heard anything from Martin himself since this whole ordeal began.
