TORONTO -- Bullying is often associated with children, but former Toronto Argonauts star Mike (Pinball) Clemons isnt surprised that a burly NFL player was antagonized to the point where he left his team midway through the season. Joe Namath Jets Jersey . Offensive tackle Jonathan Martin left the Miami Dolphins last week after reportedly receiving constant harassment from teammate Richie Incognito. Incognito, a starting guard, was suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team for his interaction with Martin, a 2012 second-round pick from Stanford. Dolphins coaches reportedly asked Incognito, a nine-year veteran who is white, to toughen up Martin, who is bi-racial, after he missed a voluntary workout last spring. Incognito is accused of using a racial slur to describe Martin and also sending him threatening text messages. "What it really shows is bullying is a microcosm of society, that its in our daily lives," Clemons, the former Argos star player and coach whos now the CFL teams vice-chair, said in a telephone interview. "Bullying is often associated with kids but its full grown, its everywhere. "Its in the office, its on the playground. Everywhere we work, live and play bullying is present and the more we see it and understand it, I think the more capable we are of dealing with it." Incognito has made headlines before. He was suspended during his college career with Nebraska after getting into an altercation with a teammate, and also had legal issues while with the Cornhuskers. Incognito has also earned a reputation of being one of the NFLs dirtiest players and in 09 was released by the St. Louis Rams for undisciplined play. But in Miami, Incognito was voted by teammates to serve on the clubs player council. Bullying is a subject near and dear to the hearts of Clemons and the Argos. The CFL club has been involved in the Huddle Up Bullying Prevention Program for over a decade. Argos players and officials annually visit area schools to educate students about bullying, encourage them to stop doing it to one another and how to help those they see being bullied. And Clemons said bullying can take place in even the most simplest forms. "We do little things on a daily basis that bully people," Clemons said. "We lay on the horn when somebody is in traffic. "They cant control traffic, they cant do anything but were mad at the car in front of us. Or were in a hurry because we didnt leave ourselves enough time and so were mad at the car thats going the speed limit. We do this in our everyday lives but the key is most times we keep ourselves from going too far." The reality in sports -- especially the pro ranks -- is all players are subject to some form of rookie hazing or initiation. Football is no different, with first-year players often having to carry teammates helmets and shoulder pads after practice and being responsible for covering the cost of the veterans dinners. But the prospect of a six-foot-five, 312-pound All-American offensive lineman being bullied to the point of leaving his team to seek counselling is difficult to comprehend. "Once you break training camp, the guy is no longer a rookie, hes a part of your team," Clemons said. "There are places where it lasts lightly for that rookie year, they have to do little things like bring doughnuts when you have an early flight . . . but after that (rookie year) it stops." Despite his diminutive size, the five-foot-six, 170-pound Clemons said he was never the victim of bullying but was forced to deal with racism growing up. Clemons believes Martin took the right approach in handling his situation. "He took the absolute right route because he did what he thought was proper," Clemons said. "You can deal with the guy personally, and whos to say he didnt try? We dont know that. "You can take it to the organization or do what he did, which was walk out and when they followed up on it said "This was why I did what I did. In a school situation we always say you need to let someone in authority know." Clemons said while bullying is a very serious issue, hes hopeful lessons can be learned from this. "Many times we think of the kid being bullied is a kid that looks like me, tiny and diminutive," Clemons said. "This guy is a big dude . . . its not always the small guy. "Hopefully better things will be ahead because of this. Its hard to think of this process as being a good process but I believe it could have many good outcomes."

The Bills become his fifth team in six seasons since the Georgia product was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the sixth round in 2009. "I guess the biggest thing has been opportunity," Wynn said during a telephone conference call, when asked about the challenges hes faced in a winding career. "Thats what I think has been a problem. But Ive been grateful and glad to do whatever the team gave me, and go out there and show my talent." Listed at 6-foot-3 and 285 pounds, Wynn split last season between San Diego and Dallas. The Cowboys were in need of healthy defensive linemen when they signed Wynn in October, shortly afterr he was released by the Chargers. Sam Darnold Jersey. Wynn spent his first three years in Green Bay, and the 2012 season with the Tennessee Titans. Overall, he has 8 1/2 sacks in 58 career games. Mostly used as a defensive end, Wynn has the bulk to play tackle. He is expected to provide depth on a defence thats making the switch to a 4-3 system under new co-ordinator Jim Schwartz. "I feel like I have shown improvement to guys that I can play in this league and rotate in the rotation," Wynn said. "But Im not trying to be a rotation guy this year. Im trying to come in and win the starting position." That will be a tough task. The Bills already have a solid front made up of ends Jerry Hughes and Mario Williams, and tackles Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus.
