Report: Richie Incognito is ‘done’ on the Dolphins
Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito may have seen his last days with the team, according to a report from the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero.
Incognito is currently suspended indefinitely by the team for conduct detrimental to the team and is in the final year of his contract with Miami.
“He’s done,” a ranking club source said Monday. “There are procedures in place and everyone wants to be fair. The NFL is involved. But from a club perspective, he’ll never play another game here.”
Multiple outlets released excerpts of voice mail messages and text messages allegedly left by Incognito for Dolphins right tackle Jonathan Martin. The messages contained threats, racial epithets and profane language. The NFL is currently investigating the case.
Martin left the team last week and is seeking counseling in California.
More from the Miami Herald:
Incognito has yet to formally defend himself from these allegations and is expected to do just that in a robust manner. The Dolphins also have requested and are awaiting a vigorous review of the entire matter from the NFL.
So the Dolphins will wait for Incognito’s defense and the full NFL review to play out before formally cutting ties with the player. But the die is cast. The same organization that once strongly defended and embraced Incognito has internally decided to sever ties.
