According to the Associated Press, at one point Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin thought about quitting the game of football.
Before Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin left the team saying he was bullied, he told multiple people that he was considering quitting football, two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
Martin now plans on continuing his NFL career.
One of the people said Martin considered giving up the sport because he was mistreated by other offensive linemen. That person said Martin, who sought counseling for emotional issues, now plans to continue playing. Both people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the organization has said little about Martin’s departure.
With all of the support that Richie Incognito has received from his teammates, I’m not sure Martin is going to want to play for the Dolphins any longer.
