Miami Dolphins are looking to move on from the Richie Incognito Bullying Scandal as soon as possible, with owner Stephen Ross said to be close to meeting up with victim Jonathan Martin in the near future.

The 'Ted Wells report' looked into alleged bullying by Incognito and other Dolphins players towards Martin, something which led Martin to leaving the Dolphins last season. 

Incognito was placed on suspension, and when the report was released it talked about some horrific experiences that Martin had to endure. 

This included verbal abuse, racially offensive text messages, homophobic taunts and physical assault where Incognito held Martin down and punched him.

However, the Dolphins are looking to recover from the scandal that has engulfed their entire organisation. 

Ross was scheduled to meet Martin in November 2013, but the high profile nature of the scandal meet that lawyers for Martin and the NFL put back that plan whilst an investigation on the situation was concluded.

"I was precluded from talking to him while the investigation was going on," Ross explained on a conference call with the Miami media. "Now that we got the report, the lawyers are trying to arrange the meeting, which should take place relatively soon I believe."
