In his interview with Jay Glazer on "FOX NFL Sunday," Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito responded to claims that he had bullied teammate Jonathan Martin by offering up a new claim of his own that Martin himself had sent threatening messages during their communications over the past few months.

The eighth-year vet then highlighted one text message in particular, stating that a week before "all this went down" he received a text from the rookie Martin that said, "I will murder your whole effing family."

Incognito suggested that this added some background to the type of relationship the two had, seemingly implying that his texts — which included racial epithets and threats against Martin and his family — were just par for the course.
