The Miami Dolphins have plenty of on-field issues along their offensive line, which has made it very difficult for quarterback Ryan Tannehill to get comfortable in the pocket and take the next steps in his development of as a starting quarterback. Not too mention the bullying scandal that rattled the team and led offensive tackle  Jonathan Martin to leave while guard Richie Incognito was released.

Incognito checked into a rehab facility to work on his mental issues, and now that he has ended his time in the program, Incognito is hoping to make his NFL return. He even hopes he can do it with the Dolphins.

"Returning to the Dolphins was my No. 1 goal from the time I got suspended," Incognito said to WSVN-TV's Rosh Lowe.

After a break from Twitter, Incognito finally returned to express his desire to make a comeback with the team.

"Richie wants to come back and play," Incognito wrote on Twitter. "But the business has to handle the business end, and that's it." He also retweeted several fans asking the Dolphins to bring him back.

Unfortunately for Incognito, it is very unlikely that the Dolphins will have him back after his involvement in the bullying and harassment of Martin. What chances Incognito does have at an NFL return likely exist outside of Miami.
