Quarterback Andrew Luck led the Pac-10 in passing efficiency for the second year in a row.As a junior, Martin again started all games and earned All-America honors by and the Walter Camp Foundation.

These are arrests, charges and citations of NFL players for crimes more serious than common traffic violations.

Almost all of the players belonged to an NFL roster at the time of the incident.

However, within hours of hearing the tape, Incognito had been suspended.

On November 5, the Sun-Sentinel reported that the message that ultimately led to Incognito's suspension was made after Martin missed two days of the team's voluntary workout program.

It was later reported that during this period Martin had briefly checked into a hospital for emotional distress before flying to his parents' home in California, where he is "preparing a detailed document for his cooperation with a league investigation into a string of alleged multiple incidents he says led to his emotional distress and exit from the team".

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the most egregious of these exchanges was a highly graphic voicemail Incognito left in April 2013, in which Incognito called Martin a "half-nigger piece of shit," threatened to slap Martin's mother across the face and even uttered a death threat against Martin.

He was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft and has also played for the San Francisco 49ers. Martin has a total of nine relatives who graduated from Harvard including his grandfather, a professor in international development, and his maternal great grandfather, one of a dozen African-American students there in the 1920s.

Martin attended John Thomas Dye School in the Los Angeles area and for high school, he attended nationally ranked Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles, California.

Martin had started the first 12 games of the season at right tackle, ranking 63rd out of the 69 NFL tackles who had played at least 300 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus’ grading system.

The Miami Herald reported that the Dolphins were concerned about moving Martin due to the impact on him.

Until obtaining the tape from Martin's legal team, the Dolphins had publicly maintained the charges against Incognito were pure speculation.
