09:58 AM ET 02.16 | A former Miami Dolphins lineman identified as one of the targets of harassment in the racially charged bullying scandal said Saturday that he has no problem with the team in a statement released by his agent. Andrew McDonald, Player A in an NFL-ordered report released Friday by lawyer Ted Wells, said in the statement that he is "disappointed his name has become associated" with the revelations about the reported harassment. The report of Jonathan Martin?'s allegations that he was harassed by teammate Richie Incognito, states that Dolphins offensive line coach Jim Turner didn't attempt to stop the behavior and even took part in some of the taunting of Player A. McDonald's agent, Brett Tessler, said in the statement to The Associated Press that McDonald has "been a member of another organization since last season and is trying to focus on his future. When Ted Wells approached Andrew at the end of the investigation, Mr. Wells already had all the information contained in the report that he had gotten elsewhere. While Andrew can't speak for other players involved in the report, he personally has had no problem with the Miami Dolphins organization and has the highest opinion of Coach Turner both personally and professionally and feels terrible about the way their relationship has been portrayed in the report." McDonald, 25, is currently with the Carolina Panthers.

Every team plays jokes on each other in the locker room, but the Fish went to far and some players and maybe some coaches will pay the ultimate price for their acts.

Exactly. The NFL is a business and a locker room is part of the work place. It is not exempt from reasonable behavior. That is total nonsense. Every work place has its " joking around," but no workplace is free reign to do or say anything. Not even the military.

No way would this stuff have happened with a BB coached Patriots organization or a Coughlin coached organization or many other teams. The Dolphins are a rudderless ship from top to bottom and this all was a result of that.

And Coughlin had a guy who fired a gun inside a night club.

Big difference between what happens in the locker room and outside the locker room.
