Hickey replaced Jeff Ireland, whom the team parted with following an 8-8 season. Incognito will be a free agent this offseason, and Martin is not expected to return to the Dolphins.

“I understand opportunities in the NFL are fleeting,” Martin said. “I’m hopeful that I get another opportunity and I’m going to make the most of it because this is what I love to do. I don’t know what I would do if I wasn’t playing football.”

Dungy said he reviewed text messages and voice mails that Martin received.

“It was a tough, tough situation. … I couldn’t picture anything like this going on in the locker rooms that I was involved in,” Dungy said.

NBC Sports Network plans to air more of Dungy’s interview with Martin on Wednesday night.
