More light has been shed on the nature of Miami Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito's harassment of his teammate, Jonathan Martin, and it's just as ugly as you expected.


According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Incognito sent Martin a number of threatening text messages and voice mails, one of which referred to Martin as a "half-nigger." It doesn't end there:

There are several instances of threats as well, the sources said, and overall disturbing exchanges, including one in which Incognito refers to defecating in Martin's mouth.

Incognito also made reference to tracking down members of Martin's family and harming them in the texts as well, according to a source.


According to La Canfora, both the Dolphins and the NFL have seen these threatening text messages.


And here's some of what Incognito sent to Martin, as transcribed by Adam Schefter:
