On October 28, Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin left the team, and four days later he made allegations against former teammate Richie Incognito concerning misconduct and bullying.
Over the subsequent three and a bit months, rumblings of discontent have continued with argument and counter-argument from both camps making headlines.
But now it seems there may be some sort of definitive solution.
Criminal attorney Ted Wells, acting on behalf of the NFL, has been conducting an investigation into the allegations since December, interviewing the main characters along with various coaches, team officials and Dolphins executives, with the aim to publish a full report.
And now, as relayed by NFL.com's Michael Silver, this report is due to be released to the public on Thursday February 5.
Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has spoken recently about how the report will affect the team as they attempt to move forward:
"I have an idea about what will be in it," Ross told the media last Tuesday.
"When it comes out, we'll do what has to be done. In my mind, I know what direction we're going."
Neither Martin, or Incognito, who has been suspended since Nov. 2 and is set to enter the free market in March, are expected to play for the franchise again.
