Jonathan Martin to the 49ers

For a while, it seemed Jonathan Martin might not play in another NFL game. Now his return is all but certain. The San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday sent a conditional draft pick to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for the offensive lineman, who left his team last season after what investigators deemed "a pattern of harassment" by fellow offensive linemen Richie Incognito, John Jerry and Mike Pouncey. The deal reunites Martin with his former coach at Stanford, Jim Harbaugh, who stood by his former player throughout the saga. Will this revive Martin's career? What will happen with Incognito, who is a free agent?

Can Joe Philbin change Miami?

Less than a week after NFL investigator Ted Wells released his report on the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal, we are starting to see some of the repercussions of Wells' findings. The Dolphins fired offensive line coach Jim Turner and long-time head athletic trainer Kevin O'Neill, both of whom, according to Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, exhibited "poor judgement" as noted in the report. Then, speaking at the NFL combine, Philbin said he controls the Dolphins' workplace and assured there will be changes within his team.

Report on Dolphins scandal

NFL investigator Ted Wells has released his report on the Dolphins' locker room bullying scandal, and it's not kind to Richie Incognito. Wells found that Incognito, along with linemen John Jerry and Mike Pouncey, engaged in a ''pattern of harrassment'' directed at Jonathan Martin, another Dolphins offensive lineman, and an assistant trainer. The players used racial slurs directed at the trainer and taunted Martin and the other player with homophobic name-calling and other remarks.
