BEIJING (AP) — San Francisco 49ers great Joe Montana says the controversy involving Miami Dolphins players Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito will work itself out.

The Hall of Fame quarterback was at the Great Wall of China on Monday on a tour to promote football in a country where few are familiar with the sport.

Montana said bullying was common in the NFL, although more information is needed to determine what exactly happened between Martin and Incognito.

He said the locker room is a “fun, crazy place,” but added, “it’s a tough place, too, sometimes.”

An NFL special investigator will question players this week about what happened between Martin and Incognito.

Montana says “it’ll figure itself out.”
