Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey said he has spent time with suspended guard Richie Incognito and says the nine-year veteran wants to return to the team.

Pouncey said two watched the Dolphins’ 20-16 victory over the San Diego Chargers together on Sunday. Pouncey did not play in the game due to illness.

Incognito was indefinitely suspended by the team earlier this month for conduct detrimental to the team for allegedly bullying and threatening tackle Jonathan Martin.

“Me and him watched the game together at my house,” Pouncey said, via ESPN.com’s James Walker. “He’s doing really good. He’s in good spirits. He wants to get back on this football team and wants to get back and play football. Richie Incognito, the football player, so that’s the only thing he knows. He’s missing it to death. He’ll be alright.”

The Dolphins and Incognito are scheduled to meet Thursday for a grievance hearing about Incognito’s suspension and lost money.

Pouncey has some interesting friends.  One (Hernandez) is in jail, awaiting trial for murder and suspected of possibly 2 more.  The other (Incognito) is accused of harassment and bullying.  Incognito doesn't care about his Dolphin teammates, he cares about all the money he is losing while suspended.  These are the people he considers his friends, maybe it's time for Pouncey to go as well.

Of course he wants to return to the team. Football is all he knows and he is out of work.

What's the latest status on Pouncey's subpoena for grand jury testimony related to Aaron Hernandez’s “potential involvement in interstate gun trafficking, which is being investigated by several agencies in multiple states — at least Massachusetts, New York and Florida?"

Definitely a quotable upstanding guy, with some "interesting" friends.   Luv the "Free Hernandez" hat too!

All Incognito is missing is his paycheck ... he would move heaven and earth to get that back ... except to clean up his act.

Sometimes people have to hit rock bottom before they realize that their behavior is unacceptable. Which is worse? Incognito bullying another 6'7" 300 pound man or these other NFL dopes getting pulled over for DUI's and pot possession? Are we really going to accept that he will lose his job and livelihood because he "picked" on another huge man? A US Congressman just plead guilty to possession of cocaine. Is he losing his job? Was he suspended indefinitely from Congress? No.

Doubtless Pouncey and Richie I. had a very nice bro-bonding session, comparing body art and injecting each other with "vitamin shots" (a la Canseco-McGuire).

Just after it was reported that a second player teamed up with Incognito to bully a staff member.. without naming names.. we find out that Pouncey has a sudden illness and just happens to hang out with Incognito to watch the game. hmmmm, I wonder who that second player was?

Pouncey and Incognito: a couple of real brain surgeons.

If Incognito isn't smart enough to stay away from Pouncey he isn't getting back on an NFL playing field.

Yeah right.  Incognito is done with the Dolphins, and maybe the NFL, after more and more "stuff" comes out about his bullying.

Same Pouncey that wore the "Free Hernandez" t-shirt.  So doubt his opinion is that highly regarded.

"Me and him... he's doing really good".    Glad to see that, except for football, your four years of college were a waste of time.   Maybe you and Richie can become bouncers together, push people around...

"Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey said he hung out with Richie Incognito this weekend."

A meeting of the minds, I'm sure.

@kj4027 Politics is definitely another beast. All Radel wants is to keep his pension and benefits even if he cannot win re-election. Radel is all about the bucks ... as is incognito but the situations are not comparable. Radel is not likely to be "fired" by his fellow congressmen but he can be "fired" when he seeks re-election.. Incognito is another story altogether ... it is not up to his "teammates" or "buddies" to keep his job ... it is all about the NFL and the Dolphins owner ...

@muser Well said.  What a couple of PR nightmares they are, huh?

@GoPSULions reply ... and perhaps Incognito is just another of Hernandez' dupes and a murderer or co-consipirator as well just like Pouncey.

@nycsteelersfan LMAO police interview him to see if he eve saw anything suspicious about Hernandez or if he had any idea about him selling guns and all of a sudden he is an accessory to murder?? I bet you are one of the people that bashes Kobe while you are wearing a Roethlisberger jersey. Get a life TROLL

@Voiceover310 You sound ignorant with those comments. Pouncey is under suspicion and is being investigated.
