LOS ANGELES (CBSMiami) — Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito touched down in Los Angeles late Friday, not saying a word about the bullying controversy swirling around him.
“I appreciate what you guys are doing a job,” Incognito said to the cameras in tow, “but I have no comment at this time and I will not be making a comment.”
After his string of “no comments” in front of cameras, he finally decided it was time to talk.
“This isn’t an issue about bullying, this is an issue of my and John’s relationship. You can ask anybody in the Miami Dolphins locker room who had John Martin’s back the absolute most. They will undoubtedly tell you me,” Incognito said in an interview on Fox News Sports.
Fox’s Jay Glazer tweeted out a picture of he and Incognito while he conducted the interview. It’s his first time speaking since this whole controversy broke. That will air on Sunday.
According to CBS Sports, Incognito flew to Southern California so he could meet with his agent, David Dunn.
At Incognito’s agent’s office, there were lights on in the building, but no one coming to the door. At his agent’s house in upscale Laguna Hills, no one came to the door either. A source said he could possibly be staying here.
Meanwhile, it’s been a quiet day and evening at Jonathan Martin’s place in Los Angeles. No one coming in or out all day.
“It’s strange,” said Martin’s longtime neighbor Paul Ramirez. “Absolutely strange, you know? I think we all feel that way,” said neighbor Paul Ramirez.
For neighbors, this whole bullying controversy has them asking a lot of questions of their own. Ramirez has lived across the Martins for years. He watched him grow up.
“It’s just a great family. I don’t get it,” said Ramirez, “I don’t get any of this stuff it’s a shock to the whole neighborhood.”
