Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito took to Twitter Wednesday to criticize teammate Jonathan Martin for his role in the bullying uproar that led to his suspension.

Just days after his suspension was lifted last week, Incognito, who had been supportive of Martin throughout the bullying affair, bashed his Dolphins teammate in a series of tweets. In the posts, Incognito states his desire to “move on” from the situation, but also claims that he feels “betrayed.”

“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, [sic]” Incognito wrote.

Next, Incognito addressed Martin directly, implying that he had been misled as to the true nature of their relationship in the Dolphins locker room. “Dear Jon Martin….. The truth is going to bury you and your entire “camp”. You could have told the truth the entire time,” Incognito tweeted.

“Jon Martin---you started all of this when Kenny Zuckerman released the [voicemail] to ESPN,” he added. “The same VM we joked about with [Dolphins teammate] Brian Hartline.”

Throughout the last few months, Incognito insisted that he had not bullied Martin, who abruptly left the team in October after a dispute at the team facility. The “voicemail” refers to a now-infamous message in which Incognito directed racially insensitive language at Martin. At the time, Incognito claimed that both men frequently used such language in their friendship.

Earlier this month, The Big Lead obtained more than 1,000 text messages between Martin and Incognito, which seemed to corroborate the latter’s account of their relationship. In the texts, the two men frequently target each with harsh language, explicitly discuss their sexual encounters with women and convivially discuss team-related activities.
