Richie Incognito Quietly Pursues a Team
Richie Incognito for once lives up to his name. The lineman at the center of the Miami Dolphins 2013 bullying scandal peruses the NFL want-ads concealed, camouflaged, hidden, obscured--incognito.
Less than a year after such loud antics as vowing to slap Jonathan Martin's mother and defecate in his mouth, smashing his own Ferrari with a baseball bat, and exploding periodically on Twitter, the unguarded guard guards his words.
A leaner, less loquacious Incognito tells USA Today's Josh Peter that "we've had some nibbles'' in free agency. The reviled lineman isn't saying much. Neither are potential suitors. Given Incognito's talent level, and the NFL's recent history of dispensing second chances to the likes of dog executioner Michael Vick and deadly drunk driver Donte Stallworth, the former Dolphin will likely find a home sometime late this preseason or early during the regular season. Losing is worse PR for an NFL team than even Richie Incognito, and some team surely believes that the former Pro Bowl lineman can help them win.
"I'm not talking until I get picked up,'' Incognito told Peter. "I'm standing pat on that.''
