The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are holding an open competition for their starting guard spots, but the team isn't interested in ex-Dolphins guard Richie Incognito, according to the Tampa Tribune.
Bucs head coach Lovie Smith was asked Monday about Incognito as a guard candidate.
"All players that are available, we look to see if they would fit in our program,’’ Smith said. “All players. And I will just kind of leave it at that. If we are really interested in someone, we will bring them in."
Incognito is hoping to return to the NFL after being released by Miami following his suspension from the team in November 2013. He was suspended while the NFL investigated his role in the bullying allegations made by former Miami teammate Jonathan Martin.

Incognito's agent said that the player has had "some nibbles" from teams.
The Buccaneers recently took Jamon Meredith, who had been No. 1 on the depth chart, out of the running for the starting right guard spot.
