Richie Incognito

I'm Worried About Jonathan Martin

Tells FOX in First Interview

11/9/2013 4:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

richie-incognito-jay-glazerRichie Incognito calls Jonathan Martin his best friend on the Miami Dolphins -- and says he's worried about him ... even though Martin's allegations of hazing got Richie suspended ... TMZ has learned.

Incognito talked today for the first time about the scandal ... with FOX NFL insider Jay Glazer. Sources on the FOX set tell us Incognito wasn't exactly apologetic for his actions -- but instead expressed deep concern about Martin's health since he left the team.

We're told Incognito was willing to answer any and all questions about the controversy -- including alleged threats against Martin's family, and the infamous voicemail he left ... where he allegedly called Martin a "half n***a."

Pretty surprising for Incognito to refer to Martin as his "best friend" ... considering his accusations could ultimately ruin Incognito's NFL career.

The interview will air during tomorrow's FOX NFL Sunday pregame show.

It's unclear if Incognito addressed the video TMZ posted of him raging in a sports bar, yelling the n-word -- but we'd bet it came up.

Incognito flew to LA on Friday, and was extremely tight-lipped with reporters and the paparazzi. Now we know why.

His attitude has been encouraged since he was young, he never learned anything from all of his suspensions and now he doesn't know how to act any other way.

Douche.

Why is he concerned, he's a lunatic who's a racist,and why would he dare say he's worried about Martin. Coming to Los Angeles is not the answer Iggy you behave like that here your visit could become your problem.

And the media spin begins... what else is he going to say to turn this around and make it look like Martin is unbalanced? Typical bully.

Glazer, another substance abuser, will not ask Incognito anything worthwhile. A puff piece from a puff 'journalist'.

Team Martin who has class, brains & braun. Incognito is a self serving, classless bully lacking brain cells. The apple doesn't fall from the tree and Richie's father is pure evidence of this. Incognito should be banned from playing football, take anger management classes & enrol in therapy to deal with his issues. Incognito Senior should stop speaking to the media.
