Miami Dolphins

DAVIE (CBSMiami) – With each passing hour Sunday, more and more details are coming to light about some of the alleged problems inside of the Dolphins locker room that may have played a role in offensive tackle Jonathan Martin leaving the team.

According to Adam Beasley from CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald, there is a “huge issue inside the Dolphins’ locker room” dealing with young player being forced to pay for high-priced items for veteran players.

“One young defensive player, whose privacy I’m protecting, has literally gone broke because he’s been pressured to pay for older players,” Beasley wrote on Twitter Sunday afternoon. “They’ve gotten sucked into the Miami lifestyle, and the veterans are using the younger player as an ATM, I’m told.”

Beasley continued saying a younger Dolphins player “was handed the tab for a $30,000 team dinner. The rookie minimum this year is around $400,000.”

Beasley said some Fins rookies, “are living paycheck to paycheck, I’ve heard, – and having to pay for their teammates’ spending habits has not helped.”

Compounding the issue for the Dolphins are the questions about how the coaching staff could be so out of the loop about what was happening inside the locker room. The Dolphins have been trying to move past the Martin issue, but with more and more details coming out about it; the team faces more questions.
