Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said that the NFL report on the Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin workplace harassment scandal will most likely come out after the Super Bowl and also said he believes he knows what's in the report although he admits he hasn't seen it.

Incognito was suspended by the team with pay after leaving racial and graphic voicemails to Martin and will be a free agent this offense. Martin left the team in October to reportedly seek counseling to deal with issues that occurred in the Dolphins locker room.

“I have an idea what will be in it. I’ve been in communication with the NFL. I’ve spoken with Ted Wells who is handling the investigation,” Ross said to the Miami Herald. “I haven’t seen the report. I don’t know exactly it’s conclusions. I believe based on my conversations that … well, let’s put it this way, I don’t want to really speculate. When it comes out, we’ll do what has to be done but we’ve already … in my mind I know what direction we’re going. Stay tuned.”

Ross said he didn't think it was likely that either player would return to the team next season, then immediately backtracked off of that statement.

"Well, I can't say that. I retract that statement so therefore I can't say that. I never said that," he said. "It's been tweeted?" he asked. "One is a free agent by the way and the other is on our roster, we claim right to him."
