Richie Incognito Says Racist Voicemail Was Joke, Wants to Hug Jonathan Martin in Interview (Video)

After more than a week of rumors and speculation about the Dolphins’ bullying scandal, Richie Incognito finally spoke out about the situation.

Incognito, who was indefinitely suspended by the Dolphins for allegedly bullying teammate Jonathan Martin, sat down with FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer over the weekend to discuss the controversy and offer his side of the story.

The 30-year-old admitted that he went over the line with some threatening and racially charged text and voice messages, but he noted that it was a joke and that it’s just the nature of his relationship with Martin. Incognito also talked about what he considered to be a close relationship with Martin and even turned more than 1,100 text messages between he and Martin over to Glazer after the interview.

Check out the full interview between Glazer and Incognito in the video below. Click here for a full transcript of the interview.
