Incognito’s paid suspension ends tomorrow, technically

After Sunday’s game against the Patriots, the paid suspension of Dolphins guard Richie Incognito will end.

The options for the Dolphins are simple.  Reinstate Incognito, cut Incognito, or get him to agree to continue the paid suspension through the end of the season.

Per a league source, it’s likely that the Dolphins will indeed pay Incognito for the final two weeks of the season.  It’s unclear whether he’ll be playing or not playing for his final two game checks (at $235,000 each) in Miami.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald recently reported that Incognito won’t play again for the Dolphins, and Salguero predicted that an agreement would be struck (if it hasn’t already been reached) to pay Incognito not to play.

Through Sunday, Incognito will have missed six games after being summarily suspended by the team for detrimental conduct, based on allegations made by Jonathan Martin.  Incognito missed two games without pay, and four with pay.  He has reserved the right to pursue payment for the two games for which he wasn’t paid.

    Great!… Bring Incognito back on the field to bully the refs so they call a fair game.

    At least he will play again. Martin won’t.

    They already agreed to pay him through the season. That’s why he pulled or postponed his grievance. The only future issue would be playoff compensation if they make it.

    It’s like when I was suspended and couldn’t come to school.
    I went to ball games, went ice skating,stayed up late and slept late in the morning. That was rough.

    He has been punished. Lets move on. If he helps the team win, it would be dumb to cut him. You re trying to win right? Is he better than the 2nd string guard on your o line? Is he a cancer on the team? Hope they beat the Pats today. Signed miami fan this week in Cinti

    Since they will pay him until the end of the year, how does it work if they cut him and is picked up by another team. The hated Jets most likely. He needs to go. More ugly stuff will be coming out on him and Martin. It’s not over.
