Former Pro Bowl linebacker and 4 time Superbowl winner Bill Romanowski joined The Drive on Thursday to talk about the soap opera that is the Miami Dolphins right now with the allegations on bullying and harassment:

The 4-time Pro Bowl linebacker was asked what his first reaction was when he heard about the story involving Jonathan Martin, Richie Incognito, and the Miami Dolphins: “My first reaction was, I wanted to know the coach’s take. When I finally heard him speak, I was like this is very scripted, he is being very careful.”

In 1988, Romanowski was drafted in the 3rd round out of Boston College by the San Francisco 49ers and he shared some of his experiences during that ’88 rookie season: “My rookie year, I was picked on by a guy that had been there for two years. I’m going to say his name, Charles Haley. And Charles Haley was calling me the “P-word”, that ends in a “y”. And I would say to him, ‘well, let’s go outside, and we’ll see who the p-word is’. And then he would laugh at me and begin to jab at me again, and again.”

The 15-year NFL veteran has been a part of 4 different NFL teams and 4 different NFL locker rooms and he talked about his reaction to some of the text messages and voicemails Richie Incognito left for Jonathan Martin: “When I heard that, I was like ‘I’ve heard some really nasty stuff and said some really nasty stuff in the locker room, where guys are always jabbing at each other, in a fun way, but it’s always who can deliver the lowest blows and the quickest, and sounds like to me this wasn’t one of those situations’….This was a man on a mission to really hurt this guy.”
