Richie Incognito is ready to move on from last year’s media debacle and bullying scandal that saw he and Miami Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin thrust into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

Last season, vile messages and voicemails were released to the public with Incognito spitting vitriol and hate towards his fellow offensive lineman. Ultimately, the bullying led Martin to leave the team and caused mass hysteria in the Dolphins locker room and NFL media.

The Dolphins cut ties with both men, and have reconstructed a new offensive line through free agency and the NFL draft.

Almost a year later and Incognito remains without a team, but there is now hope that he will soon be suiting up for NFL Sundays after all.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers see past Incognito’s transgressions simply due to the fact that they have a deplorable offensive line, and there is a former Pro Bowler available as a free agent.

Incognito reportedly met with Bucs head coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht yesterday for five hours, and things went smoothly according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times:

With roster cuts being made, the Bucs will have to decide soon whether or not they are willing to give Incognito a shot at making the team.
