Would you pick Jonathan Martin off waivers?

I've never focused on the guy, but assuming he's a capable lineman, I'd take him in a second. He could be a good addition and it would be a strong statement from an organization that prides itself on doing things the right way. I think this whole episode is fascinating. First you have the underlying behavior. Who knows how widespread it is in the NFL, but it's presumably not unique to Miami. I'm pretty confident that at anywhere near this level it would not be tolerated or go unnoticed by Coach Coughlin and the Giants organization. Then you have the emotional breakdown by the victim and the identification of the primary bully, hilariously named Incognito and with the stereotypical tattooed arms. Then you have the initial denials by Martin, Incognito and the team. Then you find out Martin wasn't the only victim and that the veterans have been pressuring younger players to treat them to five figure gifts. Then the team suspends Incognito without any type of hearing or proceeding, apparently under pressure from the NFL and just days after denying that he did anything wrong. I just went on the Miami SBNation site to see the fan reaction. I'd recommend it. Good cross-section of reasoned comments, people who just care about how it affects the team (I have no problem with that group)and lugheads. I love football, so I like to put it out of my mind that a lot of the guys who excel in the game are thugs and bullies, but sometimes you just get hit over the head with it.
