Miami Dolphins offensive lineman, Richie Incognito has tweeted that former teammate Jonathan Martin was considering suicide last year.
From his 68Incognito account he said: "FACT: Jonathan Martin told me he thought about taking his own life in MAY 2013 b/c he wasn't playing well. Told me he felt worthless."
Incognito was suspended by the Dolphins in October after teammate Jonathan Martin walked out of the team. Incognito has been accused of bullying Martin and a series of vulgar text messages have been released.
The investigation into the case is ongoing.
Incognito has claimed that he and Martin were friends throughout the whole saga but it now appears that he feels some resentment toward his former teammate for the way he has been portrayed.
Earlier he had tweeted: "I'm ready to move on with my life and career. I've been dragged through the mud for months by my "best friend". #betrayed #railroaded"
In a series of tweets, Incognito also said that the 'truth will bury' Martin who has only conducted one public interview since he walked out of the team.
Martin was drafted in the second round of the 2012 draft by the Dolphins but walked out of the team in October 2013, citing emotional reasons.
He has stated that he does not wish to return to the team.
