Incognito’s Attorney Releases Some Of Martin’s Text Messages

Richie Incognito

Richie Incognito’s attorney released some of the text messages Jonathan Martin sent him that showed two players, possibly friends, talking right through Martin leaving the team, Tim Kephart of CBS Miami reports.

Incognito’s attorney, Mark Schamel, gave CBS4 News 40 pages of text messages exchanged between his client and former offensive line mate Jonathan Martin. Throughout almost all of the exchanges, which date back to December 2012, both men use foul language, insult each other, talk about picking up women, and other things.

Incognito and Martin were exchanging messages on December 17, 2012 and were going to go out together. At one point in the exchange, Martin told Incognito, “Ima egg your house & light a bag of s*** on fire then ring your doorbell.”

Incognito responded, “I’m going to shoot you and claim self defense. I’m white ur black I’ll walk.”

Martin responded back, “I’m gonna give McDonald bath salts and lock him in your house with a tranquilizer gun & a box of sand paper condoms.” Incognito replied to Martin, “Hahaha.”

The very next day, both were text messaging each other again as if nothing happened.

A similar pattern emerged on the texts released by Incognito’s attorney to CBS4. For the next several months, Incognito and Martin continued to exchange often times graphic text messages that contained “threats,” talks about women, and a variety of other things.

In mid to late October, the two continued to exchange texts and talk about parties, women, and other things. On October 23rd, Incognito texted Martin, “F*** you!!!” to Martin and the former Stanford offensive tackle responded with a photo that read, “I will murder your whole f***ing family.”

After Martin left the team near the end of October, Incognito repeatedly texted martin asking him to call him and if he was okay. Martin finally responded to Incognito on November 1, “Wassup man? The world’s gone crazy lol I’m good tho congrats on the win.”

Incognito responded to Martin, “Thanks dude. It’s unbelievable all the attention this is getting. All that’s important is that you feel better and know we miss u dude.” Martin replied, “Yeah I’m good man. It’s insane bro but just know I don’t blame you guys at all its just the culture around football and the locker room got to me a little. Btw…never check yourself into a mental hospital.”

Incognito replied, “I hear ya It’s a lot to take in I’ve checked myself in before I had to threaten to beat everyone up for them to let me out. Not fun.” Martin wrote back, “Yeah bro it was the worst. I almost snapped and started breaking s***.”

The conversation on November 1 continued with Incognito writing back, “Hahahahah That’s exactly what I was feeling. The brain is a tricky thing My brain has been to far out places and back.” Martin replied, “yeah man. How you feeling? Heard you got hurt.”

A little later in the day, Incognito texted Martin a picture of an article from ESPN.com titled, “Sources: NFLPA Eyes Martin Case.” Incognito followed that up with, “What’s up with this?”

Martin replied, “I got nothing to do with it man I haven’t said anything to anyone.”

Incognito replied, “I heard it’s all coming Ur agent?” Martin didn’t reply back to Incognito.

On November 2, Incognito wrote to Martin saying, “I need you buddy I’m getting killed in the media.” The next day Incognito again pleaded with Martin, “Bro can we talk? The dolphins are talking about releasing me”

Martin didn’t respond in the transcripts given to CBS4 by Incognito’s attorney.
