As reported earlier, Ted Wells' investigation into the bullying scandal at the Miami Dolphins was released today.

The report included a list created by Jonathan Martin in May of last year, detailing reasons why he wanted to leave the NFL.

Amongst the reasons were Martin's belief that he hated his teammates and was suffering from self image problems.

Martin also revealed that the NFL has inherent safety problems.

"I won't die from CTE" wrote the lineman as one of the benefits of leaving the league

The NFL has recently been involved in a high profile lawsuit where they paid $765 million to former players who have complained of concussion issues. Some of those players involved have also stated that suffer from CTE.

CTE stand for chronic traumatic encephalopathy and is a progressive degenerative condition which affects the brain. The condition can cause dementia, memory loss, aggressive behavior and can result in death.

However, Martin's agent Kenny Zuckerman has revealed that Martin intends to return to the NFL for the 2014 season.

“Jon called me on Wednesday, said he ‘can’t wait to play again. I’ll play anywhere for anyone.” Zuckerman revealed to reporter, Ian Rapoport.

It seems that regardless of concussion issues, Martin will be playing in the NFL next season.
