TMZ.com published a photo of Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin at a strip club, smiling broadly while flanked by two naked women.
Part of the claims of bullying against fellow lineman Richie Incognito had been that Incognito had forced Martin and the other linemen to attend "meetings" at the nude clubs.
Neither Martin, who left the team, nor the suspended Incognito played for the Dolphins after October.
The website reports that "sources connected to the NFL investigation tell TMZ Sports ... Martin had sent several text messages to Richie before the fallout making it clear he was VERY comfortable hanging out in strip clubs.
"In fact, we're told the picture was taken at Tootsie's during a team outing in the summer of 2013. Sources connected to the strip club tell us Martin was hanging out with roughly 15 to 30 teammates that night and appeared to be enjoying himself."
