Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin had issues with multiple players on the team, not just suspended guard Richie Incognito, his agent told Mark Schwarz of ESPN on Thursday.

Agent Rick Smith said Martin is doing very well but wouldn’t say when his client would return to the team.

Representatives for Martin have turned over evidence of harassment to the Dolphins, the NFL and the NFL Players Association.

Commissioner Roger Goodell appointed attorney Ted Wells to direct an independent investigation into the Dolphins’ workplace conduct. That report will be made public.

Martin’s family has hired attorney David Cornwell to represent Martin’s legal interests in the issues with the Dolphins, a source has confirmed to ESPN.

The hiring was earlier reported by Fox Sports.

NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith released a statement Thursday saying he’s been in contact with Miami players.

“I continue to be in touch with players in Miami, their representatives and player leadership, and I look forward to information that defines the full scope of the NFL’s investigation,” he said. “Every NFL player should expect safe and professional working conditions. The NFLPA has taken steps to ensure that every one of our affected members is represented. It is our duty as a union to learn the full facts, protect the interests of players involved and hold management accountable to the highest standards of fairness and transparency.”
