NFL-Dolphins delay Martin meeting as per NFL’s request

* Team owner had planned a Wednesday meeting with Martin * Dolphins coach says time for team to focus on football (Adds background and coach’s comments) Nov 12 (Reuters) – Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has postponed his talk with Jonathan Martin until after the NFL’s independent investigator meets with the distressed tackle in its probe into alleged bullying, the team said on Tuesday. Ross had said in a news conference on Monday before Miami’s game against Tampa Bay that he set up a Wednesday meeting with Martin, who left the team at the end of last month and later claimed he was the victim of harassment. The National Football League last week appointed Ted Wells, a noted New York attorney with experience in sports cases, to investigate possible misconduct in the workplace in the wake of the unfolding harassment scandal.
