Brandon Marshall: What's going on with Dolphins goes on everywhere

Brandon Marshall says what's going on in Miami 'goes on in every locker room.' (USATSI)
On Sunday, the Dolphins suspended left guard Richie Incognito for his role in bullying left tackle Jonathan Martin, who has since left the team and is in counseling. Virtually everyone -- from all walks of life -- has weighed in, and Wednesday, Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who has been outspoken about his borderline personality disorder, offered his thoughts.

"[What's] going on in Miami goes on in every locker room," he said, according to "But it's time for us to start talking. Maybe have some group sessions where guys sit down and maybe talk about what's going on off the field or what's going on in the building and not mask everything. Because the [longer] it goes untreated, the worse it gets."

Lions running back Reggie Bush, who will face the Bears on Sunday and played with Incognito and Martin in Miami last season, says the culture of NFL locker rooms needs to change.

"Obviously the situation that's going on is unfortunate, and anytime a guy gets pushed to that level of not wanting to play football then something has to be done," he said. "I think it's something that we can all learn from."

Players from around the league are divided on this issue; some support Incognito while others applaud Martin for standing up for himself.

For now, the Dolphins' front office and coaching staff have remained quiet on the matter while the league investigates. The Dolphins' players, however, are a different story.
