Ted Wells: Initial round of interviews are over

NFL investigator Ted Wells, looking into the Jonathan Martin-Richie Incognito saga, released this statement on Saturday night:

"We have concluded our initial round of interviews with the Miami Dolphins and spent time with every player and coach, as well as key staff members and management. Our work will continue over the next few weeks. I want to thank Stephen Ross, the Dolphins organization and its players, coaches and staff for their complete cooperation throughout this process."

Every player and coach?


It has been so far known that Wells talked at length with Incognito, center Mike Pouncey and offensive line coach Jim Turner.

It is surprising he says he's spoken to every Dolphins player and coach.

Also, this statement suggests there might be another round of interviews and the investigation might last  a "few weeks" more.

The NFL placed no timetable on the Wells investigation.

I've been told Ted Wells's interiew with offensive line coach Jim Turner took approximately two hours. His interview with with most players lasted approximately 15 minutes but the interviews with Richie Incognito took more than five hours over two days and the interview with center Mike Pouncey took more than an hour, although a source declined to give the exact amount of time.

I reported last week Pouncey and Turner were of particular interest in this investigation.

Jonathan Martin's attorney alleged his cliented endured a malicious physical attack on him by a teammate, and that attack was the topic of repeated questions of Pouncey and others. The Herald's Barry Jackson reported the alleged attack happened at Pouncey's home in 2012.

As I reported Saturday afternoon, Pouncey will not play against Carolina on Sunday.

Ape Tamer did it.

Well Ted...maybe too many apelike thinking processes for ape tamer eh? or not enough education and football knowledge eh?


By the third series

TruthHurTs = Ape Tamer.

What is Ireland saying about the scandal? Anything?

just win, baby.


Step on the gas eh?
but the stupid Dopephins will forget to lower the jack eh?

As I stated earlier Dion Jordan needs to be used in a 'spy' role against Cam.

Jordan has the size and speed to give Cam problems, he also needs to use this opportunity to show what he has and justify his value to the Dolphins.

Cam is such a force right now, but he can be rattled and his confidence broken early if Jordan puts some big hits on him.

Ireland brought in Incognito and Martin. So he's tucked in the fetal position, hiding.

I would take that as an insult about being Ape Tamer but there's no way to prove it other than say...has anyone here ever heard me say a bad thing about T-hill. I'd probably burst into flames...I have that much faith in the kid. The truth is this I am an anti-troll and unapologetic fan.


I hope your faith is well placed today my friend. I don't share your optimism as I gone at length to point out.

Im hoping he has the best game of the year. Today I think he goes 34-22 240, 1TD 2 ints.

What do you think his stats will be today ?

I'm not happy with Tannehill so far but I'll give him the remainder of the season to try and show something.

Dumb homer eh?

Dr Alan,

Im not happy with him either mate, but I hope he proves me wrong and plays better than he has all year.

He needs to actually go win us a game and really steep up and lead by example. I want him to and dream that one day he will. So far he has had maybe two games I'd point to that he played great and thats it.

The Thill fans will tell you he is going to be great etc and compare him to Manning, Brees, Marino and tell you how Brady has a weaker deep ball that Thill, on and on delusion my friend.
