The Los Angeles Times also reports that in 2015, Martin detailed his struggles growing up in a series of Facebook and Twitter posts.

"The post featured a picture of a gun with the hashtags "#MiamiDolphins" and "#HarvardWestlake" on it, as well as having former teammates Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey tagged. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins have not announced any details of Martin's illness. "The investigation is continuing, but rest assured we believe there is no threat to any school in the LA area". An NFL investigation found that Incognito, Pouncey and teammate John Jerry engaged in persistent harassment directed at Martin.
