Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said in a Monday news conference that he would meet with Jonathan Martin on Wednesday, two days before Martin was scheduled to speak with Ted Wells, the attorney appointed by the NFL to lead the investigation into the Dolphins' locker room culture. Martin left the team two weeks ago amid allegations that he was bullied by teammate Richie Incognito.

But now, according to the Dolphins, Ross' meeting has been postponed.

“Ted Wells and the National Football League have asked that we delay our meeting with Jonathan Martin until they have the opportunity to meet with him first. Out of deference to the process, we will cooperate with their request," Dolphins CEO Tom Garfinkel said in a statement. "We look forward to meeting with Jonathan directly as soon as possible.”
