Richie Incognito, the Dolphins player who was suspended for allegedly bullying a teammate, tweeted support for Michael Sam after the former Missouri defensive end came out as gay on Sunday.

KING: Is the NFL ready for an openly gay player? We’ll soon find out.

Incognito tweeted that the announcement took guts, wishing Sam “nothing but the best.”

Incognito’s suspension was lifted last week. It remains to be seen whether he will be back with the Dolphins next season.

Nice gesture by R.I.  Now if we could just get that loser Jonathan Martin out of the league.
