Suspended Dolphins guard Richie Incognito, who was slammed in a scathing report on Friday for his bullying of teammate Jonathan Martin, has apologized to Martin on Twitter. Incognito also apologized to Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and even Ted Wells, the attorney who compiled the report.

"I would like to send Jonathan my apologies as well," Incognito wrote on Twitter. "Until someone tells me different you are still my brother. No hard feelings :)"

Incognito was heavily criticized in Wells' report for a pattern of abusive behavior aimed at Martin, who left the Dolphins in late October and was hospitalized after experiencing suicidal thoughts. Two other Dolphins offensive linemen, center Mike Pouncey and guard John Jerry, and offensive line coach Jim Turner also were identified by Wells as being involved.

Incognito said he was sorry to Ross and Wells.

"I would like to also apologize to Mr. Ross and Mr. Wells. [expletive] got cray cray #MYBAD." He also addressed the league, writing, "I would also like to take the time and thank my boss @nfl BEST JOB IN THE WORLD."

Incognito is hoping to return to the NFL, although the Dolphins have indicated he will not be back with the team.

Incognito wrote on Twitter late Sunday that he was firing his agents, Athletes First, but later removed the tweet. Yesterday morning, he wrote, "Shout out to @AthletesFirst I love you I will never ever FIRE you Tu es mi familia."
