Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito, who was suspended by the team last season for the bullying of Jonathan Martin, has made it no secret that he wants back in the NFL eventually. And according to him, he and his agent have been shown some interest from teams around the league about acquiring his services.
In an interview with USA TODAY Sports, while not going into great detail, Incognito proclaimed that his agent has had “some nibbles” as training camps continue around the NFL and the preseason is underway.
Again, though, he refused to go into detail about anything until he does eventually sign a contract with a new team, should that opportunity even present itself.
“I’m not talking until I get picked up,” said Incognito, 31. “I’m standing pat on that.”
The fact of the matter is that any team that grabs Incognito is taking a huge PR risk in signing him.
It certainly doesn’t help Incognito that he hasn’t exactly been on his best behavior since his departure from the league, most notably smashing in his Ferrari with a baseball bat for really no explicable reason.
But, with how badly teams want to win today, it’s not out of the realm of possibility for a team with serious offensive line help to seriously consider the former Pro Bowler.
