Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said on Monday he had arranged a meeting for Wednesday with Jonathan Martin, the player who left the team saying he was emotionally distraught over being bullied by team mates.
Ross said he was "appalled" by some of the revelations in the case that has captured widespread public attention over the so-called clubhouse culture on the Dolphins and other National Football League teams.
Offensive linemate Richie Incognito, who was singled out by Martin, has already been suspended indefinitely by the National Football League team, and the NFL has announced an independent probe into the matter.
"I'd like to hear from him about what happened and what made him feel that way," Ross told a news conference in Tampa before Monday night's game between the Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"And what we could have done to prevent this from happening."
