Jonathan Martin is leaving the Miami Dolphins and his bullying accusations against Richie Incognito behind, traded on the first day of NFL free agency Tuesday to the San Francisco 49ers. The move reunites the offensive lineman with 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, who was his college coach at Stanford. San Francisco is sending an undisclosed draft choice to Miami in return. An investigation determined last month that Dolphins guard Incognito and two other lineman carried out persistent harassment of the 24-year-old Martin, another player and an assistant trainer. Martin left the Dolphins in late October and underwent counseling for emotional issues, while Incognito was suspended for the final eight games of the season Incognito became a free agent Tuesday and isn’t expected to play for the Dolphins again.
