Richie Incognito, who sent out a series of tweets last week criticizing the NFL’s investigation of the Miami Dolphins’ bullying scandal, added some more strong tweets Wednesday.

Among them, he declared that the truth would “bury” Jonathan Martin and his camp. Incognito continued: “Jon Martin — you started all of this when Kenny Zuckerman released the [original, racially charged voicemail] to ESPN. The same VM we joked about with @brianhartline.”

Zuckerman is Martin’s agent. Incognito also scolded Zuckerman, asking him what he has to say about his actions and what was his goal in releasing the message.

“I’m ready to move on with my life and career,” Incognito added. “I’ve been dragged through the mud for months by my ‘best friend’ #betrayed #railroaded. I’m guilty of being a loyal friend and good teammate. I apologize for my poor language and rude remarks. I’ve never denied it. ”

Incognito seemed to be in a good mood when he greeted Twitter followers, saying “What's up twitter!!! Happy Hump Day!!!”

Incognito also apologized to women for the misogynistic language he used in private text messages with Martin, which later were made public.

The NFL’s investigation into the bullying scandal, led by Ted Wells, is expected to be released later this week or early next week.

    IN MY OPINION

    Greg Cote: Michael Sam is a distraction to embrace, not avoid

    It’s no surprise that Tony Dungy’s comments this week about Michael Sam — comments that on the surface seemed more benign than inflammatory — have created such a national tempest. Sports are a Petri dish for argument and debate under any circumstances, and when you add the politics of religion and gay issues to the mix, the chances of a quietly civil discussion have pretty much left the building.
