Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin spent over seven hours being interviewed by the NFL on Friday. After the interview was over, Martin didn't have much to say, but he did promise that he would eventually be 'resuming my career in the National Football League."

Martin met with attorney Ted Wells, the man appointed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Nov. 6 to lead an independent investigation into the Dolphins workplace conduct as it relates to guard Richie Incognito. 

After the meeting, Martin didn't offer any details about what he discussed with Wells, "I do not intend to discuss this matter publicly at this time," Martin said, via USA Today. "This is the right way to handle this matter.'

However, Martin did give a short statement. 

Today's meeting is consistent with my commitment to cooperate with the NFL's investigation into my experience as a player on the Miami Dolphins. Although I went into great detail with Mr. Ted Wells and his team, I do not intend to discuss this matter publicly at this time.

I do, however, look forward to speaking directly with (Dolphins owner) Stephen Ross, (CEO) Tom Garfinkel and the Dolphins organization at the appropriate time. This is the right way to handle the matter. Beyond that, I look forward to working through the process and resuming my career in the National Football League.

Martin hasn't been with the Dolphins since he abruptly left the team's facilities on Oct. 30. As for the NFL's investigation, Goodell has promised that it will be thorough, but there's currently no timetable for when it will be finished.
