Former Miami Dolphins tackle Andrew McDonald has released a statement confirming that he is the unnamed 'Player A' in Ted Wells' report on harassment in the Dolphins' locker room, and that he holds the Miami organization in high regard.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio reports McDonald released the statement because he felt it was already being leaked that he was the unnamed player who had been subjected to homophobic taunts not only from his fellow offensive lineman, but also from offensive line coach Jim Turner in 2012.

The statement, which came through McDonald's agent, stresses that he spoke with Wells at the end of his investigation, after all information had been gathered, and harbors no ill will against his former coach.

"While Andrew can’t speak for any other players involved in the report, he personally has no problem with the Miami Dolphins organization and has the highest opinion of Coach [Jim] Turner both personally and professionally and feels terrible about the way their relationship has been portrayed in the report."
McDonald joined Miami as an undrafted free agent out of Indiana University in 2012 and spent the season on the team's practice squad. He was a member of the Carolina Panthers' practice team last season before signing a free-agent contract with them in January.
