|Jonathan Martin acquired by 49ers |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/11/14) The 49ers have acquired offensive lineman Jonathan Martin for a conditional draft pick from the Dolphins Tuesday, according to ESPN.com. According to the report, the Dolphins will receive a 7th-round pick from the 49ers in 2015 if Martin makes the opening 53-man roster.
Martin was at the center of a firestorm when he left the Dolphins in the middle of last season citing bullying issues within the team. This move reunites him with his college head coach Jim Harbaugh.
|Differing reports on Jonathan Martin's future with Miami |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(2/13/14) While NFL Network reports that it's "not impossible" for embattled offensive lineman Jonathan Martin to return to the Dolphins, the Miami Herald believes there's no chance of a return. Martin left the team last season citing locker room issues that mainly included bullying by teammate Richie Incognito.
The Herald surmises that several Dolphins players were unhappy with how Martin left the team and that they might not welcome him back. The paper also noted that if the team welcomed Martin back then the message it would send to the roster could be devastating as anyone could just pick up and leave the team without serious repercussions.

July 29, 2013, Incognito to Martin: "Pop a couple Molly (ecstacy) I'm sweeeeatin."
August 31, 2013, Martin as Incognito is trying to coax him into a double-date: "My friend Mary Jane (marijuana) has me glued to the couch. Incognito: "F***** stoner. Take a shower and get ur a** down here. These bit**** are ready."
Drug-related texts continued between the two in September.

(1/30/14) Jonathan Martin never cooperated with an National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) investigation into the Dolphins bullying scandal that plagued him and the franchise in 2013, per USA Today.
Martin refused to speak with NFLPA attorney Richard Smith, who interviewed witnesses and examined the role of Miami management in the alleged abuse of the former Dolphins offensive lineman.
"We weren't able to talk to Jonathan Martin, which was unfortunate," said NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith. "But we're going to conduct our workplace evaluation and our report is concluding."
|Jonathan Martin says he's ready to return |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(1/30/14) Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin is ready to start up his career again, according to the Sun Sentinel.
Martin told Tony Dungy he's ready to come back to football after missing most of the year as part of the Richie Incognito scandal. Martin discussed his time in Miami, saying he talked to coaches about his concerns, but was afraid to approach head coach Joe Philbin. Martin said he tried to be friends with Incognito. He added that he didn't want to be the type of player that snitches on his teammates. When Dungy asked Martin to prove he was ready to play, Martin responded, "I'm looking you in the eye and telling you I'm ready to play."
