(SportsNetwork.com) - Suspended Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie
Incognito gave an interview to FOX Sports for its NFL Sunday pregame show and
said he regretted using racist language in the voicemail that was released
concerning the alleged bullying of teammate Jonathan Martin.
FOX released a portion of the interview set to air Sunday.
"This is an issue of my and Jon's relationship," Incognito told Jay Glazer of
Fox Sports. "You can ask anybody in the Miami Dolphins locker room, 'who had
Jon Martin's back the absolute most?' and they will undoubtedly tell you me."
Martin left the team prior to its Week 9 win over Cincinnati and Incognito was
suspended by the Dolphins this past Monday.
"All of this stuff coming out, just, it speaks to the culture of our locker
room, it speaks to the culture of our closeness, it speaks to the culture of
our brotherhood," Incognito added. "And the racism, the bad words, you know,
that's what I regret most, but that's a product of the environment, that's
something that we use all the time."
