As more and more haunting and gruesome stories and tidbits come out about Richie Incognito and his harassment of teammate Jonathan Martin he has been struggling to find supporters. Incognito’s former Dolphins teammate Karlos Dansby, now with the Arizona Cardinals, is shocked by everything he is hearing and even defended Incognito to a bit.

Richie was a down-to-earth guy,” Dansby told Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. “I hate all this came out about him. It’s really attacking his character. I hope Martin doesn’t have any backlash from this from the rest of his teammates.”

He might be the only Cardinals player who feels that way. Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett, who played against Incognito a lot when he was with the St. Louis Rams in the same division, said it reflected his character or the Incognito that he knew.

“He’s been getting away with a lot of stuff,” Dockett said. “His whole makeup is playing dirty and trying to hurt guys. Like I say, just Google it up. There are so many incidents where he’s trying to hurt guys and physically bully guys. I’m glad certain guys are standing up for themselves. I hope the guy from the Dolphins is able to get some help, rebound and continue his career.”
