DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says the NFL Players Association will conduct its own investigation into the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal.

The person confirmed the investigation to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the union hadn't announced its plans.

Richard Smith, outside counsel for the union in the New Orleans Saints bounty case, will investigate tackle Jonathan Martin's allegations that he was harassed by teammates, including guard Richie Incognito, who has been suspended. Smith will examine the roles of coach Joe Philbin, his staff and Miami management.

NFL special investigator Ted Wells has been questioning players, coaches and staff at the Dolphins' complex this week.
