If Richie Incognito was hoping to clear his name, the Ted Wells report that was released on Friday morning will not help him out in any way. Along with allegedly Jonathan Martin and an assistant Miami Dolphins trainer, the report shows that Incognito was often making racial slurs and perceived as a racist.

One exchange, which appeared to be light-hearted and fun but completely inappropriate, showed Incognito and an unnamed teammate joking about buying a rifle that would be perfect for “shooting black people” or former general manager Jeff Ireland.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network passed along the tidbit of information:

The entire report is troubling and very damning for Incognito, who by all appearances does not know how to handle himself as an adult.

It is a shame that any player was subject to this type of emotional abuse, but hopefully the NFL will be able to use the findings in this report to set a new standard for what is acceptable and punishable in locker rooms.
