Miami Dolphins guard Jonathan Martin recently conducted a one-on-one interview with Tony Dungy for the "Today Show," where he said he believed Richie Incognito's 'attacks' on him were racially motivated. 

As you will probably know, Martin left the Dolphins team during the 2013 season in a media storm after reporting Incognito for bullying, following messages sent to his phone by Incognito saying he would kill him and other things about Martin's family.

However, Incognitio has always maintained both men were friends, and said they joked around with each other. Incognitio hired high-profile public relations firm Sitrick & Co. to publicly fight allegations he "bullied" Martin, and the first phase began on Thursday.

Mark Schamel of the law firm of Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge & Rice, told Fox News, "The coarse and unacceptable comments and text messages that were sent to Jonathan Martin were of the same poor taste as those sent by him.

All of these communications were provided to Ted Wells and the NFL investigation. What they show is banter between friends, not bullying."

The quotes are too vulgar and graphic to post on here, but you can view them on Fox if you so desire.

However, Martin’s spokeswoman, Ann Marchant, told Fox News that NFL investigators have, “the entire series of texts and it's more accurate to look at all of them.” Marchant said Martin’s responses to Incognito was “to be a friend to Richie and to fit in” with the team.

She added that Incognito sent emails yet to be made public where Incognito "talks about (unable to post) (Martin's) mother and sister. They are very vile."

Incognito has been seen as the main aggressor and his public image has plummeted for what has transgressed between he and his teammate. But it will be interesting to see what happens next and how the whole situation will transpire.
