MIAMI - The agent for Andrew McDonald, a former Miami Dolphins lineman who is identified as Player A in the investigation of the racially charged bullying scandal, says his client is "disappointed his name has become associated with this story."
Brett Tessler said in statement to The Associated Press Saturday McDonald "has no problem with the Miami Dolphins organization."
McDonald is now with the Carolina Panthers.
An NFL-ordered report released Friday said Dolphins offensive line coach Jim Turner took part in some of the taunting of Player A. Several people interviewed told investigators that Turner gave Player A, a male sex doll as a gag gift around Christmas 2012.
Tessler says McDonald "has the highest opinion" of Turner and "feels terrible about the way their relationship has been portrayed."
