In the wake of the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin scandal, you would think Miami Dolphins players would know to be more careful about how they interact publicly with rookies.
Evidently, Mike Pouncey did not receive the numerous memos the Dolphins certainly have sent out about the matter. Because he’s already hazing rookie offensive lineman Ja’Wuan James.
Pouncey sent out this tweet shortly after James was taken by Miami with the 19th overall pick.
I’m sure that joke was hilarious to other Dolphins players and it might even be hilarious to Ja’Wuan James.
But it’s not going to come across very hilarious to people who think the Miami Dolphins and NFL teams in general wittingly or unwittingly create cultures that encourage people to psychologically abuse each other.
So in future, maybe Pouncey should keep the “hilarious” hazing jokes in-house?
I’m sure the Dolphins will have a few things to say to Mr. Pouncey about the matter. Assuming they still have a functioning PR department down there.
