After suspended Dolphins guard Richie Incognito agreed to postpone his grievance hearing pending the completion of Ted Wells’ investigation, we reported that Incognito will be meeting with Wells on Thursday or Friday.

As it turns out, Wells and Incognito are meeting on Thursday and Friday.

Jeff Darlington of NFL Network reports that Wells interviewed Incognito from 3:00 p.m. ET until 7:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, and that they will resume the session on Friday.

Incognito’s willingness to break the meeting into two consecutive days suggests that a spirit of cooperation and indeed exists.  If the process were adversarial, attorney Mark Schamel wouldn’t have given Wells the opportunity to review his notes and regroup for a fresh second run at Incognito.  Instead, Schamel would have made it clear that it’s a one-day, one-shot deal.

We’ve heard that a sense of confidence exists in the Incognito camp.  Time will tell whether the confidence is warranted.

    Confidence in that acceptance of the status quo will set him free.

    Good….maybe the Dolphins still have time to save their season and Philbin’s job.

    Incognito=wants to earn his paycheck.

    Martin=wants a free handout via some bogus lawsuit.

    And there are seriously people still debating which of these two guys they’d rather have on their team? LOL

    I don’t think anybody really cares any more. It’s become pretty apparent Jonathan Martin is no saint and he just threw people under the bus, either because he got his panties in a wad or because he has an ulterior motive.

    If Ted Wells goes by what is corroborated information and not hearsay or written in the press. Then this is a forgone conclusion with the entire team having Incognito’s back. I just do not see Martin coming out of this as a victim of racism and bully tactics.

    Looks like Incognito was dealt a good hand. Surely The Goodell wasn’t gonna let this be too much of a tarnish to “the sheild”. I mean if Incognito is found guilty Of bullying that could potentially open up a can of worms for all the teams in the league.

    And really, how independent is an independent investigator when you get to choose and pay them. The NFL is gonna look out for the NFL. PERIOD

    The NFL will always go with CYA, big business will do nothing that will stop the flow of money and will let the bus run over anyone to do that.Bill

    All parties involved are probably better off just walking away from this all including the NFL. The media is finished with it and its not in the spotlight anymore so why bring it back in. Give the players their money, give the phins a fine, and put out a water downed investigation report to the public that doesn’t draw much attention if they can.
