DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - The players' union representative from the Miami Dolphins says the fallout from their bullying scandal is overblown because every NFL team has a similar locker-room culture.
Long snapper John Denney, a nine-year veteran, said Monday he hadn't read the investigative report on the Dolphins case. But any harassment among players is nothing new, he said.
In a report released Feb. 14, investigators found that guard Richie Incognito and two other offensive linemen engaged in persistent harassment directed at tackle Jonathan Martin, another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer.
Denney, at 35 the Dolphins' oldest player, said behavior among players was no different last year than when his NFL career began in 2005. Bullying of rookies was common then, he said.
