Incognito finally zips it, posts his lawyer’s phone number on Twitter

Apparently, someone finally has told Richie Incognito to shut up.  Even more apparently, Richie doesn’t like being told to shut up.

After a Wednesday afternoon Twitter tirade against Jonathan Martin and agent Kenny Zuckerman that culminated in Incognito claiming that Martin told Incognito in May 2013 that Martin was contemplating suicide because of his poor play, Incognito pulled the plug, saying, “I have no further comment at this time. Please contact my attorney Mark Schamel.”

Incognito then provided Schamel’s phone number.

The decision to publicly post Schamel’s number, which likely will be flooded with calls (we didn’t post it here for that very reason), suggests that Schamel told Richie to knock it off, Richie wasn’t happy with it, and so Richie opted to comply in aggressive passive-aggressive fashion.

As one league source told PFT on Wednesday afternoon, “[Richie] just wants to have his way.  This is his way of stomping and holding his breath.”

Basically, Incognito is upset that the Ted Wells report exonerating Incognito for his treatment of Martin hasn’t been issued, so Incognito is lashing out.  And he lashed out until his attorney told him to lash out no more.  Incognito then lashed out in backhanded fashion at his lawyer by posting the guy’s phone number on Twitter.

Chances are Incognito will remain quiet until the report comes out.  At which point he’ll lash out again if it’s anything other than a complete and total win for Incognito.

    You do realize that your take that Richie is “lashing out in backhanded fashion at his lawyer by posting his lawyer’s phone number on Twitter” is speculative.

    So is “Even more apparently, Richie doesn’t like to be told to shut up.”

    First off, who does? Secondly, that was one of the earlier seeds to sway some more of your “factually-based reporting.”

    How about just give the man his report so the story can die …

    Naw thats too easy, y’all gotta sell stories ..

    I don’t think anybody wins in this situation anymore. Let the report come out so we can put an end to this. ANs start wishing for an end to the Micheal Sam drama. NO player wants distractions in the lockeroom!

    He just won’t stop. He seems incapable of applying any self control. He is going to ruin any goodwill he may have gotten from a favorable report.

    Incognito kind of looks like a swollen Phillip Rivers.

  6. enkay85 says: Feb 12, 2014 4:08 PM

    You know what they say when you assume…

    Fact is no one has any idea why he posted the number and it’s immature to assume it was because he was lashing out.

    Roid rage. What a meat head.

  8. bertyboz says: Feb 12, 2014 4:09 PM

    Richie isn’t being very incognito today.

  9. brownnorange00 says: Feb 12, 2014 4:09 PM

    Free Richie.
    Come play guard for the Browns.

  10. gochargersgo says: Feb 12, 2014 4:12 PM

    What a bully!

  11. JackedUpSports says: Feb 12, 2014 4:12 PM

    well that escalated quickly

  12. jda129 says: Feb 12, 2014 4:13 PM

    That guy looks like he’ll destroy a toilet.

  13. charliemeatwagon says: Feb 12, 2014 4:16 PM

    He acts a lot like Phil Rivers, too.

  14. doctorrustbelt says: Feb 12, 2014 4:16 PM

    Sinking ship.

  15. ravenspa says: Feb 12, 2014 4:17 PM

    so after being accused of being a bully, being almost vindicated by the voicemail and texts, and then taken off suspension, he decides to act like a bully….these guys sometimes

  16. accipiterq says: Feb 12, 2014 4:19 PM

    I mean we all dump on Incognito because of past stuff, but put yourself in his position. Your best friend sucked at his job so he stopped coming to work and then blamed you. He then got the media to launch a smear campaign against you before ANY facts were out. Your employer then suspends you. Everyone assumes you’re a worthless bigot. Over the ensuing months the truth comes out, and your friend is actually a man-child who can’t handle adversity, and was looking for a quick lawsuit. But because of how reactionary people are, everyone’s already judged you, forgotten about all of this, and won’t even remember in a year or so that you didn’t do anything wrong. They’ll just remember the start of the story. I’d be incensed.

    He’d be a great skip for a curling team with such a passionate voice. Does he know how to work a broom?

  18. blizzard01 says: Feb 12, 2014 4:20 PM

    I appreciate the good work of both of them.
    Gotta keep your head on a swivel when things get out of hand. And it really did.

  19. omegalh says: Feb 12, 2014 4:20 PM

    Rehab announcement within the month.

  20. weepingjebus says: Feb 12, 2014 4:20 PM

    Post your bank information and SSN too. Really teach the Internet a lesson!

  21. 92nick182govikings says: Feb 12, 2014 4:21 PM

    Incognito needs a personal consultant with at all times to tell him what he should and shouldnt do. He is seriously making a fool of himself in front of millions of people.

  22. r8drn8tn says: Feb 12, 2014 4:23 PM

    Judging him solely on his own observable behavior it is not a stretch to imagine him and Martin joking around and Incognito taking it too far. Just stop already.

  23. sc711 says: Feb 12, 2014 4:24 PM

    Look Richie, there is no way that you acted like a teammate.

    We are a very forgiving society but until you man up, nobody is listening.

    Know those things that lead to your well-being, and those things that lead to your destruction.

    Man up.

  24. charliemeatwagon says: Feb 12, 2014 4:24 PM

    Anybody else dying to see Hard Knocks when Incognito and Sam end up on the same team? Like the Chargers?

  25. stealthjunk says: Feb 12, 2014 4:26 PM

    Hah, what a Richard!

  26. 92nick182govikings says: Feb 12, 2014 4:27 PM

    If your lawyer tells you to shut up, you shut up.

  27. bingowyo says: Feb 12, 2014 4:30 PM

    I’ve never seen or heard a guy with a full tribal sleeve act this way before. This is unheard of.

  28. shuttaman1990 says: Feb 12, 2014 4:35 PM

    Don’t get what people are saying this is roid rage.
    Martin caused all this.
    Plus he’s not even tweeting in all caps.

  29. thegreatgabbert says: Feb 12, 2014 4:41 PM

    Richie and Johnny wouldn’t stop bickering, so they’re both sitting out in the hall. At opposite ends, of course.

  30. chargerdillon says: Feb 12, 2014 4:43 PM

    Incognito only stated news of the obvious. This story already burried Martin.

    No team will want him, and very few companies will hire a known whistle blower.

    Good thing he’s a rich kid.

  31. ez4u2sa says: Feb 12, 2014 4:47 PM

    This guy is a world class moron. I really hope he is all done in the NFL.

  32. wrdtoyrmama says: Feb 12, 2014 4:48 PM

    Are we really sure this is really Incognito’s Twitter account?

    I don’t believe a word until I see Ritchie shirtless at a sports bar running around a pool table screaming while someone is filming it.

  33. contra74 says: Feb 12, 2014 4:50 PM

    I dont know what more annoying. Incognito stories, Mike Sam stories, or the Green Bay packer fanbase.

  34. wrdtoyrmama says: Feb 12, 2014 4:51 PM

    How many people here would feel good about Mr. Incognito moving in next door when he retires from pro football? There ya go…..

  35. jayquintana says: Feb 12, 2014 4:57 PM

    If this isn’t a textbook example of sabotaging oneself, I don’t know what is.

    Let’s say the report clears him. What team’s going to want to sign him now? He’s not John Hannah. In other words, he’s not good enough to be worth the distractions. And what organization is going to fight for him?

    The best thing for him to do now is PRETEND to have learned lessons, say you’ve changed, and keep a sock in the yapper from now on.

  36. schuch10 says: Feb 12, 2014 6:17 PM

    Are those billable hours?

  37. DrSteveBrule says: Feb 12, 2014 7:29 PM

    Enjoy retirement sir. Hopefully you still have enough money to never work again.

  38. thelastpieceofcheese says: Feb 12, 2014 7:29 PM

    Ted Wells has delayed the report hoping people will forget the issue. Incognito suffered an injustice and has every right to bring it up.

    At the end of the day he was an all-pro during his last full season and won’t have trouble playing again.

  39. rcj22001 says: Feb 12, 2014 9:50 PM

    I’ve got a fork right here, do you want me to put it in Richie’s career?

  40. xli2006 says: Feb 13, 2014 12:35 PM

    His lawyer gave him good advice.

    Defamation of character in a public setting is never a good idea. If Martin deems that his marketability as a player to other teams was impacted then you have a textbook case of slander.
