Miami Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito, who recently completed a team-imposed suspension for allegedly bullying and harassing teammate Jonathan Martin, accused Martin of "betrayal" in a Twitter rant Wednesday.

Responding to a tweet from a local Dolphins beat writer, Incognito said, "I'm ready to move on with my life and career. I've been dragged through the mud for months by my 'best friend'. #betrayed #railroaded." Then he kept on going.

To @68INCOGNITO not sure if that's sending report to NFL and teams, or making it public. But it is time for this to be over.

It was a sharp reversal from Incognito's supportive tweets about Martin little more than a week ago when the team announced the conclusion of Incognito's suspension.

The suspension was ended days after the Super Bowl as part of an administrative move agreed upon by all involved parties. He missed the Dolphins' final eight games of the 2013 season.

The Dolphins, Incognito and Martin are still waiting on results from an investigation by attorney Ted Wells, who was appointed by the NFL to look into the matter.
