Morning take: Incognito-Martin edition

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the Web:

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald has more on the infamous Richie Incognito voicemail, which Salguero reports Jonathan Martin played in the locker room.

Morning take: This puts a new twist on the situation. Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline hinted Wednesday that it was treated as a joke by Martin at the time.

  • Pro Football Talk reports Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland suggested Martin “punch” Incognito in order to prevent harassment.

Morning take: This is not a good look for Ireland, who has had some public relations issues with players in the past. If this turns out to be true, this will put Ireland in hot water.

  • Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post reports lawyer Ted Wells was hired by the NFL to investigate the Dolphins.

Morning take: You cannot overlook the importance of Wells. He is the point person for a full investigation that will look into every detail of this ugly and complex saga.

  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel writes about quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s position on this story.

Morning take: Tannehill is part of Miami’s leadership council and said he was unaware of the situation. According to Tannehill, Incognito and Martin were best friends.
