NEW YORK (AP) — Miami Dolphins lineman Jonathan Martin has met with the NFL counsel investigating the team’s bullying scandal.
On Friday, Martin and a companion arrived at lawyer Ted Wells’ Manhattan office building and later, he addressed a throng of reporters outside.
“I do not intend this discuss this matter publicly,” Martin said. “This is the right way to handle the situation.”
He then turned around and went back into the office.
The league is trying to gather information about the harassment Martin says he was subjected to by teammate Richie Incognito.
Some six hours after the arrival, the gathering of media had grown to more than 30, and the meeting was still ongoing. And since the office is in a tourist part of town, there were several passers-by and day-trippers who stopped to wait for a glimpse, as well. Even hop-hop artist Rick Ross walked across the street and stood with reporters, waiting for Martin.
