Stephen Ross to meet with Martin 'soon'

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has made no secret of the fact he'd like to meet with Jonathan Martin.

That meeting will happen "soon," Ross said today on a conference call with reporters. Interestingly, lawyers are the ones setting up the meeting, Ross divulged.

And if you're asking why?

Why would Ross, who has already said Martin isn't returning to the Dolphins, want to meet with Martin after the offensive lineman responded to harassment by teammates by withholding information from coaches and quitting during the 2013 season?

"I haven't heard what his feelings are," Ross said. "I think I've read the report. I think he wants to talk to me as much as I'm prepared to listen. When you've dealt with something, it's nice to understand it a little bit more by hearing from the person directly."

And having said that, Ross says the meeting with Martin will not drive the Dolphins decision making on the player at all.

"That'll have no impact really on what we're doing going forward," he said.

Folks, Jon Martin has played his final game for the Dolphins. It was true before the season ended. It is true now. You'll read and hear numerous things on the subject. And, yes, perhaps the Dolphins will leak that they want to keep Martin. That is simply a smokescreen to create trade value that does not otherwise exist.

Martin is not coming back to the Dolphins. Period.

it's true that he played his last game because he stinks ... worst graded tackle in the game, two eyars runing. even if this didn't ahppen, they would be looking at replacing him.

Dusty, Albert may only give you two top years at LT, may give you one more - but he will be able to play at RT or OG after his days at LT are over. He is more than worth bringing in.

Martin's the new LT. He's younger, healthier and cheaper....don't ya know....LOL.

my god armando, please stop writing about this. nobody gives a shite, nobody did give a shite, and nobody will give a shite. write about something football related please.

Martin is not coming back to the Dolphins. Period.


from your fingertips to Gods ears.....

Borrrring. Who cares? The last time we had the same old Martin conversation was the third time too many in my book.

I'd rather have a nice chat about what to put in my garden this spring.

Good to hear.

Maybe Ross ought to read what the SS says.....

"When asked directly what Martin, a 23-game starting offensive tackle for the Dolphins, wants to happen moving forward, Martin declined to get into specifics in a telephone interview with the South Florida Sun Sentinel on Tuesday.

“I really can’t comment,” said Martin, speaking publicly for the first time since the Ted Wells report was released on Feb. 14. “I’m just going to let the process take care of itself,” said Martin.

"By the process he’s likely referring to the NFL giving the Dolphins some direction on how to handle the final two years on the four-year, $4.784,267 contract Martin signed in 2012, which featured a $1.9 million signing bonus".

In other words, he wants money from the Dolphins but wants to play for another team. Can you say double dipping?

Armando,

How much will Ross offer Martin to release the Dolphins from responsibility for harrassment?
About 15 mill is my guess.

Here comes the "hush" money

Neither does JMart wants to be here, Armando.

In other words, he wants money from the Dolphins but wants to play for another team.

He deserves compensation for the harrassment and abuse and racism he suffered. Its just a matter of how much?

they're paying him, maybe they want to bring him back to beat him up a little in training camp...a little full metal jacket.

or bring him back, make him look amazing by "flopping" in training camp, up his value, then trade him.

I'm so tired and embarrassed as a 40+ year fan to continue to hear about this wussy on my team.

Did Cogs and Pouncey ever get around to phuqqing his sister?

Hasn't this been established since day 1, J.MARTIN DOESN'T WANT TO PLAY OR LIVE IN MIAMI!!

REASON J.Martin deserves at least half the blame for the "Scandal". He quit the team so he can go back home to the Bay Area.

Why hasn't J.Martin given an explanation for why he left? 144-page report, zero about why Martin left from J.Martin's mouth. It has all been assumed. Martin said less than the trainer to investigators.

Why do you think Martin always pleas the fifth when asked about why he left?

CAUSE IT IS EMBARRASSING FOR J.MARTIN TO ADMIT THAT HE IS A HUGE MOMMA'S BOY!!

they say that J.Martin has the Social Maturity of a 6 year old. And what do most 6 year olds miss most the first time away from home? Their Momma.

Ross better have some good attorneys lol

Deserves compensation? Yeah, he'll get his 'compensation' from his new team mates. Nobody likes a rat. Especially a rat that's also a puzzy

Can anyone point me to a link for a picture of Martin's mom and sister?

I want to see why they are so phuq worthy to the rest of our Olinemen.

"Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has made no secret of the fact he'd like to meet with Jonathan Martin."

Can u say payoff??

Cocoajoe,

I believe what you are saying is true. Martin still wants his money. All of it.

But Double-Dipping isn't going to happen on the fins. Aponte has made sure of that. All draft picks have to sign a waiver. The Dolphins were the first team to do that. Now everyone is doing it. All the picks. Not just some.

I believe that is the reason for the "mental breakdown" J.Martin had. They tried to find a way to scheme around it so J.Martin can leave his team and collect. Mental Breakdown and break the unwritten rule in football.

What is the Unwritten Rule in Football. You don't snitch on your own teammate. Telling your coach or telling the position coach or even telling your player's rep, is not snitching. Now telling everyone outside the team and running to the league with these allegations. That is snitching.

And like I said from Day 1. J.Martin would've spoke with his union rep(Denney), the guy would've found a way to fix it in house. That is why he is there, to represent you!

MR. Ross justs wants Martin to know how terribly sorry he is and that he fired the mean Mr. Turner and the mean trainer. He also canned the mean Mr. Sherman who probably harassed Him as well. So please come back mr. Martin all the bad guys are all gone. You are beloved by the management and fans, please come back.

Stephen Ross; Another exercise in closing the door after the horse has long escaped the barn.

Sigh.

trade him to SF for conditinal 7 th ( makes team) and be done with it.

Albert or Monroe have to be targets on first day FA.

Have any football related info??

This Steven Ross, bullygate crap does not belong in the sports section.

Please some info on combine, free agents, scouting reports, etc...

Stop it with the soap opera.

Yeah but that ain't going to stop Martin from trying. I really question Martin's desire to play. Could be he's trying to get paid then get out. Or he might even sign for another team, get paid then quit just to get more money

You misspelled my name but yes, I remember that like it was yesterday...LOL

2013: Ryan Tannehill Saves His Worst For AFC East

AFC East: 2-4

Rest of NFL: 6-4

Was Martin's the worst hazing in NFL history? Imagine him being on a team with Dick Butkus, Conrad Dobler or Jack Lambert. He wouldn't have made it out of training camp! I understand the Phins are trying to say all the right things now -- maybe get something in a trade if anybody wants Martin -- but I say it's not worth the aggravation. Cut him loose and move the hell on!


Signing Incognito was a costly mistake. Thanks again, Ireland.

This entire situation is with each passing day becoming much more interesting to the media than it is to Dolphins fans . . .

Is McKinnie that much worse than Albert where you might get another good year or two out of him at a reasonable price while trying to secure a new one? I don't know how they compared last year.

Regarding Ross meeting with Martin:

Political correctness has no end.......

McKinnie is done. He has said he may even retire before next season.

Some people say I Am the brains of this operation.

You guys know my motto...

Don't be a follower, Be a Sw.......

*Be a Sweater.

Now the world and especialy the NFL see the barbies as the biggest puzzy's EVAH NOW eH?jajajajajajajajaaj. eH?

Here's TPUKE eH, HELP HELP,The ANTI BULLYING rule. THE DEFENCE IS POUNDING ME INTO THE TURF AGAIN BECAUSE I SUCK ROYAL ENGLISH KNOB,Throw a FLAG.Help NFL, Help Ross. JAJAJAJAAJAJAJAJAJA.Eh?

It's the coaching you damn dirty ape.

so zero optimism that Lazor can help/improve TH?

Darkoak, ETF LOAD SWALLOWER IS STARVED.

Please feed him.

Idiotheads, yes, this means you.

Tanne doesn't need help personally, he improved under the most dire conditions, he just needs players.

You goat brains saw the great Marino couldn't do it on his own, but you still haven't learned that.

Give Tanne a line and a real RB and watch the magic.

I should have never disrespected those APES, NOW LOOK AT WHAT THEY DID TO THE DOLPHINS.DAMN YOU TO HELL ROSS,DAMN YOU TO HELL PARCELLS,DAMN YOU TO HELL IRELAND,DAMN YOU TO HELL HYZINGA.DAMN YOU TO HELL MARINO.DAMN YOU TO HELL JIMMY JOHNSON....!

wow….charlton heston is still alive?

I'm a TH fan (or at least want to give him more time, better coach/line, etc) but I'd still draft a decent QB prospect in the 3rd or 4th rd…..I'd draft one every year actually

Houdini,WELCOME TO Fantasy Island,Tattoo is running out on the golf cart to get a load of METH for you and your delusional guests,you can sit at Dr.Lectors table for dinner.9 pm sharp.

A.Hernandez just beat up another inmate. This guy will never learn. Hopefully the trial will be quick and this guy can disappear from the public eye.

GET HARBAUGH!!

Last year it was "get Tanny a WR". How'd that work out? LOL Plenty of excuses for Tannebust.

Dashi, we don't need your bronze butt to inform us of old news widely reported earlier. We are not as dumb and uninformed as you'd like to think.


Put a cork in it...and please think about growing up one day.

You could surround TannePuke with an all star team and he'd still stink. He's a terrible excuse for a pro QB. No accuracy or leadership.

I just hope Ross doesn't say or do something to cause another media circus...enough already...


You saw the great Marino couldn't do it on his own,

Posted by: Houdini | February 25, 2014 at 08:13 PM

Marino was the biggest choke artist ever.

CadillacDeVille = ETF FIRE ROSS LOAD SWALLOWER


Darko, please feed him.
