The Miami Dolphins may have not made an official decision on the future of Richie Incognito, but he’s already looking towards what is down the road for him. Assuming he’s allowed to play in 2014, something that will almost certainly happen, Incognito will be looking for a team to play on and the Oakland Raiders may be a fit.
Speaking to NFL Network’s Mike Silver, Incognito stated that he’s 100 percent on board with playing for the Oakland Raiders, which both makes sense but may also send the wrong message for his behavioral rehabilitation.
“I’m 100 percent into that,” Incognito said Tuesday night. “I think that would fit my personality the best. It makes so much sense. I know (offensive coordinator Greg) Olson and (offensive line coach Tony) Sparano, and I’m a loyal guy, and I’d love to play for them again. And, of course, the Raiders have that aura.”
It also makes sense because the Raiders have been notorious for having an image as the bad guys, and in case you forgot, Incognito is the ultimate NFL bad guy at the moment for all the wrong reasons. He may be trying to move past the bullying scandal he created for himself, but signing with the Raiders may send the wrong message, even if that’s not what Incognito intends.
