Prosecutors say former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin has pleaded not guilty to threatening former teammates who had harassed him in the NFL.
Los Angeles County prosecutors say Martin appeared in court Tuesday and pleaded not guilty to charges of making criminal threats and carrying a loaded firearm. The name of his attorney wasn’t immediately known.
A menacing post from Martin’s Instagram page last month showed a shotgun and referred by name to the prep school he attended in Los Angeles. It also mentioned the Instagram names of two former Dolphins teammates who harassed him, Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey.
The post said suicide and revenge were the only options for a victim of bullying.
Martin left the Miami Dolphins midseason in 2013 after accusing teammates of bullying.
