Free agent guard Richie Incognito will visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, and the team could sign him if all goes well, reports Jay Glazer of NFL Insider. The visit will be Incognito's first to an NFL facility since being suspended by the Miami Dolphins last season.
The visit will be Incognito's first to an NFL facility since being suspended by the Miami Dolphins last season.
He was suspended while the league investigated his role in bullying allegations made by former Miami teammate Jonathan Martin and was subsequently released.
In February, the NFL-sanctioned Ted Wells report found that Incognito -- as well as other Dolphins offensive lineman -- had repeatedly bullied Martin. If the Bucs sign Incognito, there is a chance the NFL would levy further punishment on the lineman.
Incognito has been hoping to make a comeback, and his agent said earlier in August that there had been "some nibbles" of interest in the 31-year-old.
The Buccaneers have been holding an open competition for their starting guard spots.
Bucs are thin at guard & team has been looking for experience at the position.— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) August 25, 2014
Incognito started all 16 games for the Dolphins at left guard in 2012, his last full NFL season.
