Details of the voice-mail messages and texts that Richie Incognito allegedly sent his Miami Dolphins teammate, Jonathan Martin, have emerged as the NFL and the team investigate whether there was an abusive situation in the team’s locker room.

CBS Sports’ Jason LaCanfora and ESPN’s Adam Schefter each reported the messages, which contain profanity and racial epithets, have been seen by the Dolphins and the league. The situation with the Dolphins came to light last week when Martin, like Incognito an offensive lineman, left the team amid reports of bullying allegations. The Dolphins suspended Incognito on Sunday night.

Here’s a rundown of the messages, with a warning for content:

The league began meetings on the matter this morning, LaCanfora reports. Incognito denied the report about texts and voice mails in a series of tweets that have been deleted.

After spending most of her career in traditional print sports journalism, Cindy began blogging and tweeting, first as NFL/Redskins editor, and, since August 2010, at The Early Lead. She also is the social media editor for Sports.
