DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - A senior partner in a New York law firm with experience in sports cases has been appointed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to investigate possible misconduct in the Miami Dolphins' workplace and prepare a report.

Ted Wells has begun his work and does not have a timetable for completing it, Goodell said Wednesday.

Wells' report will be made public. He has conducted special investigations into the Syracuse basketball sexual harassment case, and the NBA players union leadership dispute. In the latter case, his report led to a change in the head of the union.

The Dolphins have pledged full support in the investigation, the NFL said. A troubled relationship between linemen Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito left both players sidelined.
