We are all aware about the suspension that the Miami Dolphins handed down to offensive guard Richie Incognito after his role in the alleged harassment and bullying of teammate Jonathan Martin, but the Dolphins will soon need to decide the next step with Incognito.

After Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, the Dolphins will need to determine whether to reinstate Incognito or release him.

Miami suspended Incognito for conduct detrimental to the team. Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, a player can be suspended for a maximum of four games before the team must make a decision. This Sunday is the Dolphins fourth game without Incognito.

There are plenty of players on the Dolphins roster that have voiced their support of Incognito and have said that they would like to have him back. It also helps his chances to return that cutting Incognito would allow a team competing with Miami for one of the AFC Wild Card spots to bolster their line.

Whatever direction Miami chooses to go, they will be met with some negative reaction, so they just need to focus on what can help their team win and make the postseason.

Should the Dolphins welcome Incognito back? Sound off in the comments section below.

    Of course Miami should reinstate incognito. Martin is a weak minded individual who should have kept issues he had within the organization. Miami still has a chance @ the playoffs and Richie would definitely help.

    Welcome him back already
