Report: Dolphins OT Jonathan Martin to be traded to highest bidder
When the Dolphins' 2014 regular season gets underway next September, neither Richie Incognito nor Jonathan Martin will be on the roster, according to a report.
Incognito, currently suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, is in the final year of his contract with the Dolphins. The suspension stems, in part, from Incognito's alleged role in bullying Martin, who left the club in late October.
In addition to Incognito's "days in Miami (being) over," Salguero reports that Martin will "be traded to the highest bidder at some point in the offseason."
Although Martin has been painted as a victim in the alleged bullying scandal, teammates didn't hesitate to come to Incognito's defense once the news became public.
Back in November, when there was speculation that the Dolphins might release Incognito, MMQB.com's Peter King reported that at least one playoff-contending team that could be interested in Incognito's services for the stretch run.
Knowing that, along with the support of his Dolphins' teammates, it's reasonable think Incognito would have little trouble finding work in the offseason.
Martin's situation could be trickier, especially if teams view him as soft based on his decision to leave the Dolphins. That said, he's a former second-round pick who has yet to scratch the surface on his ability. In the right situation, he could flourish. And as the old saying goes when it comes to overpaying free agents, it only takes one team.
