Richie Incognito

Jonathan Martin Told Me He Was Suicidal

Richie Incognito
says Jonathan Martin contemplated suicide back in May because he wasn't playing well ... and Richie just told the world on Twitter.

After weeks of silence, Incognito just WENT OFF on Martin ... saying "the truth will bury you and your entire camp."

But then Richie dropped the bombshell ... "FACT: Jonathan Martin told me he thought about taking his own life in MAY 2013 b/c he wasn't playing well.  Told me he felt worthless."

The timing of Incognito's rant is interesting ... considering the man the Miami Dolphins appointed to investigate the alleged "bullying" situation is expected to release his report in the very near future.

We've reached out to Martin's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.

How the hell did someone as hyper sensitive as Martin ever get to the NFL in the first place?

Obvs Jonathan Martin got issues and decided to put the spotlight on Incognito to distract the media from his issues with not being happy in the NFL.

These two should be banned from the NFL, they are both obese knuckleheads.

Incognito is all but confessing all of Martin's claims were completely true and he knows it is all about to be revealed to the world, with this unprovoked, out of the blue, display of cyberbullying.

Richie Incognito will soon be incognito for the rest of his life, and Martin won't be startin' for any NFL team, ever. Cheers.

Funny the people who defend this lug head. He broke the EEOC. No one should touch him, cause he does sh*t all the time.

Which part of that rant did he think was going to help his case? Incognito is as dumb as he looks... and that's saying a lot.

Why is it, Incognito cant see the irony? He cant see that he claimed John Martin told him he was suicidal but, he kept picking on him, with insensitive jokes? Ok, so as a human, you dont go to the coaches and say,"this guys suicidal, he needs help" ? OK, so you did nothing wrong, I'll give you that if you want it, FINE!!! That said, at least lay off the guy and try to help him if he said he was thinking suicide! WOW, just let this go away soon, it gets worse and worse, this isnt a issue of race its an issue of bad leadership on the filed and in the front office. LGNM
