Jonathan Martin's Lawyer Speaks

Miami Dolphins player Jonathan Martin's attorney David Cornwell makes horrible accusations of verbal and physical bullying, Bleacher Report's Andy Scholes reports.

"Jonathan endured harassment that went far beyond the traditional locker room hazing," Cornwell said in a statement, released late Thursday night.

"For the entire season-and-a-half that he was with the Dolphins, he attempted to befriend the same teammates who subjected him to the abuse with the hope that doing so would end the harassment. This is a textbook reaction of victims of bullying. Despite these efforts, the taunting continued. Beyond the well-publicized voice mail with its racial epithet, Jonathan endured a malicious physical attack on him by a teammate, and daily vulgar comments such as the quote at the bottom. These facts are not in dispute."
