Richie Incognito, the Dolphins lineman who was accused of bullying teammate Jonathan Martin during the 2013 season and was suspended from the team, burned a hole in Twitter Wednesday with a string of postings just days before the league is expected to make its findings in the case public.

Incognito seemed at various times during his social media blitz to be angry, apologetic, vengeful and betrayed. He said that the NFL's report would "bury'' Martin.

Among the postings that appeared under Incognito's handle on Twitter during a span of about an hour Wednesday were these:

"I'm ready to move on with my life and career. I've been dragged through the mud for months by my 'best friend.' #betrayed #railroaded"

"Dear Jon Martin . . . The truth is going to bury you and your entire 'camp'. You could have told the truth the entire time.''

"Jon Martin -- you started all of this when Kenny Zuckerman released the VM to ESPN. The same VM we joked about with @brianhartline''

"Kenny Zuckerman from Priority Sports . . . What do you have to say for your actions? Why did you release the VM? What was your goal?''

Incognito apologized for his "poor language'' and "rude remarks'' in those voice mails and said he apologized to women he may have offended with "text messages to my close personal friend."

Incognito closed his string of postings by saying he had "no further comment" and gave the Twitter handle and phone number of his attorney, Mark Schamel, who did not respond to Newsday's request for comment.

Martin's attorney, David Cornwell, also did not return a request for comment.

NFL-appointed investigator Ted Wells' report on the incidents and bullying allegations made by Martin is expected to be filed with the league either this week or next.
