Ex-Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito still hoping for NFL comeback

Friday August 8th, 2014

With NFL training camps underway, former Pro Bowl lineman Richie Incognito is still a free agent. Incognito, 31, has not found a new team since being let go by the Dolphins in the wake of the bullying allegations against him.

But Incognito is still hoping a team will reach out. His agent told USA Today Thursday that "we've had some nibbles."

Incognito himself declined to speak until he signs with a team, though. "I'm not talking until I get picked up,'' Incognito said via USA Today. "I'm standing pat on that.''

Incognito was suspended indefinitely by the Dolphins in November 2013 while the NFL investigated his role in the bullying allegations made by former Miami teammate Jonathan Martin. Incognito remained suspended for the rest of the 2013 season. 

In February, independent investigator Ted Wells issued a report outlining the details of the bullying case.

Mike Pouncey and John Jerry were also implicated in the report. Jerry has since signed with the Giants, and Pouncey reportedly won't be disciplined for his role.
