NEW YORK (AP) — An NFL ordered-investigation found Jonathan Martin was subjected to “a pattern of harassment” that included racist slurs and vicious sexual taunts about his mother and sister by three Miami Dolphin teammates.

The report said Richie Incognito, who the Dolphins suspended in November, offensive linemen John Jerry and Mike Pouncey harassed Martin, as well as another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer.

Lawyer Ted Wells released his report Friday.

Wells says his inquiry found Martin was routinely taunted and ridiculed. The other player, whose name was not released, was “subjected to homophobic name-calling and improper physical touching,” while the assistant trainer was subjected to racial slurs.

The report rejected claims that Martin made up the claims of abuse.

Martin left the team in October, saying he was harassed daily by teammates.
