Incognito makes his return to Twitter, apologizes for “acting like a big baby”

Getty Images

Over the weekend, Dolphins guard Richie Incognito exited Twitter.  On Monday, he returned.

“I apologize for acting like a big baby the last few days,” Incognito said.  “This has all been so much on me and my family.  I just want to play football.”

He’ll find out whether he’ll be playing football on or after March 11, when he becomes a free agent.  His return could be interrupted by discipline imposed by the NFL, but as we explained earlier today the league may not be able to impose additional discipline beyond the discipline imposed by the Dolphins.

“I want everyone to know I’m in good spirits and looking forward to playing again one day,” Incognito said.

It’ll be interesting to see who gives him another chance.  Incognito can play, and at best he’d be on the same “one-strike” arrangement the Dolphins applied in 2010.  That arrangement needs to last for the remainder of his career; otherwise, “The Tornado” could return.

    What did sportswriters do for material before Twitter? Oh that’s right–sports.

  7. stampnhawk says: Feb 17, 2014 8:56 PM

    With the Michael Sam issue now reduced to the media desperately looking for someone to say something out of turn in a witchhunt; a breath of fresh air for the media vultures, with the news that RI is back on Twitter.

  8. doctorrustbelt says: Feb 17, 2014 8:56 PM

    richie incognito took some time off twitter to attack women at golf courses and shoot at Black Americans.

  9. bengalskuta82 says: Feb 17, 2014 8:59 PM

    Immature. Get lost.

    What did Richie say about the truth burying J-Mart?

  11. sammadison says: Feb 17, 2014 9:02 PM

    From the NFL

  12. dougy1970 says: Feb 17, 2014 9:02 PM

    He has a lot more to apologize for than one day’s Twitter rant. I don’t know how long it would take to apologize for a lifetime of humiliaitng others for fun.

    He can start by apologizing to the Japanese-American assistant trainer and the entire Asian-American community for saying, “Get me some water, Chink”.

  13. readjereme says: Feb 17, 2014 9:03 PM

    Aren’t you tired of apologizing? Damn!

  14. buckybadger says: Feb 17, 2014 9:04 PM

    Yes Richie we were all so concerned for your well being.

  17. doctorrustbelt says: Feb 17, 2014 9:05 PM

    Watch lil’ richie will run off and hide AGAIN like a little sissy before the end of this week.

  18. stoutfiles says: Feb 17, 2014 9:07 PM

    Captain Insano.

  19. The Steelers cast such an immense shadow over the league. There's no wonder why we are so widely envied. We are superior. We have six Lombardis. What do you have ☹? says: Feb 17, 2014 9:09 PM

    Is it September yet?

  20. mackcarrington says: Feb 17, 2014 9:10 PM

    No, Richie, it’s not a big baby, It’s a big bully.
    This guy has mental issues on the level of J-Mart. It’s no wonder they had a strange bi-polar relationship. It’s starting to make sense now.

  21. baldmancometh says: Feb 17, 2014 9:11 PM

    He was a dbag at nebraska and will always be one. He will never be able to change his stripes.

  22. casualcommenter says: Feb 17, 2014 9:15 PM

    “He can start by apologizing to the Japanese-American assistant trainer and the entire Asian-American community for saying, “Get me some water, Chink”.”

    Regardless of how you feel about political correctness, saying stuff like that is a no go in 2014. You can’t. The racial discrimination lawsuit writes itself. So yeah, he better apologize for that and vow to other teams he’d shy away from “racial humor” ever again.

  23. eduardo1017 says: Feb 17, 2014 9:15 PM

    Hes gona get signed by the cowboys i bet.

  24. favrewillplay4ever says: Feb 17, 2014 9:23 PM

    I’d still rather have him as a starter on my team than that noodle armed wanna be Kristin Ponder!

  25. blacknole08 says: Feb 17, 2014 9:24 PM

    He should have stayed off.

  26. pftisfulloftrolls says: Feb 17, 2014 9:26 PM

    You’re still acting like a big baby Incognito.

  27. phinfan says: Feb 17, 2014 9:29 PM

    He really does have Steelers written all over him.

  29. war27 says: Feb 17, 2014 9:32 PM

    I’ll take 5 RI’s for Oaklands OL please.

  30. aceakking says: Feb 17, 2014 9:36 PM

    The Steelers Cast ….

    The Steelers didn’t win SB40. The refs did. And one of them apologized for it. So the Steelers really have 5, not 6 SB wins.

  31. kremis says: Feb 17, 2014 9:46 PM

    We are still waiting for Steeler fans to apologize for acting like big babies every year

  32. patssox says: Feb 17, 2014 9:49 PM

    If you don’t go away FOREVER, how can we miss you?

  33. fedupincleveland says: Feb 17, 2014 9:50 PM

    Belichick will take him in, and keep him in line. Plus New England needs to bolster middle of OL.

    Perfect match.

  34. abninf says: Feb 17, 2014 9:52 PM

    Come to Dallas. We need you have have no sissyboys who will threaten suicide and run to the media when talked to meanly.

  35. qdog112 says: Feb 17, 2014 9:52 PM

    Told you he’d be back on twitter. He’ll never play in the NFL ever again.

    He should go hunting with Bobby Knight and Dick ChainHe (as in he should be chained).

  36. hurricanegrabowski says: Feb 17, 2014 9:52 PM

    Richie needs to change his image, really from top to bottom. New hairdo, way of presenting himself. Maybe even change his name to Ron Mexico.

  37. ariani1985 says: Feb 17, 2014 9:53 PM

    If you come to green bay the others will wet themselves, way too tough!

  38. 1rockyracoon says: Feb 17, 2014 9:56 PM

    His lawyer and common sense tells him to stay off twitter, but he can’t resist. Doesn’t seem like he’ll be changing any time soon.

  39. meatcarroll says: Feb 17, 2014 9:57 PM

    Incognito is going to win a Super Bowl with the reigning world champion Seattle Seahawks.

    “Acting like a baby” for the last few days???

    Check the record Richie, it’s well publicized that you’ve been acting that way since you were a freshman in college.

  42. doe22us says: Feb 17, 2014 9:59 PM

    Twitter the mouthpiece of the stunted growth individuals.. God knows i have tried to get it, but its a whole different language mindset out there.

  43. doggeatdogg says: Feb 17, 2014 10:04 PM

    And here I thought he left Twitter on advisement from his attorney, to stay away until his work status is decided. But nooooo, he comes back. How was he acting like a baby, in reference to what? What he did to Martin then, what he said last week. Enough. He has no insight into the situation. There is no contrition, nothing.

  44. doctorrustbelt says: Feb 17, 2014 10:12 PM

    Yeah… nothing says “tough” like picking on people with psychological problems.

    Now that richie is out of the NFL… he will probably move on to attacking troubled, homeless veterans who live underneath freeway overpasses.

  45. fordmandalay says: Feb 17, 2014 10:12 PM

    Yeah he shows no signs of mental illness and arrested development AT ALL

    Richie is a red-blooded American. THIS IS FOOTBALL!!

  48. raiderapologist says: Feb 17, 2014 10:25 PM

    Oakland had Lucas Nix starting games last year. Lucas “Dead Last” Nix. That’s why I’m afraid of Richie Incognito. As messed up as Richie is, he’s still in the top 30 talent-wise. Nix isn’t in the top 64. Richie can still get a job.

  49. braincake63 says: Feb 17, 2014 10:32 PM

    Come to Cleveland. Joe Thomas will show you how it’s done…Incognito would never get away with being a punk with Joe T running the show.

    Jonathan Martin is queer this country is turning so Gay if this happened in the 70’s 80’s they would have gave Martin a good beat down

  51. thestrategyexpert says: Feb 17, 2014 10:35 PM

    He could make 10x the money in TV or movies.

  52. tictoccpthook says: Feb 17, 2014 10:41 PM

    Richie, put your money in an interest bearing account. You blew it.

  55. defscottyb says: Feb 17, 2014 11:00 PM

    It seems to me like this is the behavior of someone who is either drinking or doing something else. Posting things, then apologizing, then doing it again over and over. I used to do the same stuff when I was drinking. Writing people emails, texts or posting stuff when drunk, then feeling bad about it the next day while fighting a hangover… Needless to say, I am glad I quit drinking.

  56. lostsok says: Feb 17, 2014 11:01 PM

    C’mon Richie…we’ll forgive you if you’ll JUST GO AWAY.

    Or change your name to NotsoIncognito.

  57. Coach John Harbaugh says: Feb 17, 2014 11:13 PM

    i would welcome incognito to the World Champion Baltimore Ravens

  58. tjgdolphin says: Feb 17, 2014 11:19 PM

    Did he ask him if he knew karate first?

    Barrett Robins at least was on a Super Bowl team – albeit, not there AT the game. Incognito will never be on a Super Bowl team. Ever.

  61. lostsok says: Feb 17, 2014 11:25 PM

    Incognito was a degenerate bully; Martin was weak-willed sycophant, Turner was an ignorant blowhard.

    It was the perfect storm of stupidity and weakness.

    As a Dolphin fan, it simply sucks that the Speilman/Wannstadt era is starting to feel like The Good Ol’ Days.

  62. dukeblue12 says: Feb 17, 2014 11:29 PM

    Just when I thought Richie had learned to walk away….he comes back lol

    Twitter is obviously not helping this guy’s cause

  63. slobberknocker says: Feb 17, 2014 11:31 PM

    Twitter…the digital bathroom wall.

  64. ivanpavlov0000 says: Feb 17, 2014 11:32 PM

    Doesn’t his Twitter feed make it seem kinda obvious that Richie Incognito has mental health issues that are both biological and psychological?

    I’m not saying that to be mean or snarky. I’m saying that his bipolar disorder (or whatever you want to call it) is something that can be fixed – if he is willing to do the work to fix it.

    If there was a way for a team sign Richie Incognito to a contract that included requirements for mandatory intensive mental health care (medical/psychiatric care as well as psychotherapy), it would probably save his life.

    For as much as the media kills this guy they sure won’t let this “story” die.

  69. wallst89 says: Feb 18, 2014 12:29 AM

    Richie, forget the NFL. You ate a natural for pro wrestling.

  70. tre747 says: Feb 18, 2014 12:30 AM

    Keep ur head up, Richie. I still feel you got railroaded by a guy, by his own admission, hadn’t stood up for himself since middle school. Also by a guy who was excused for the same actions under the cloak of “trying to fit in”. It takes a special MAN to leave shelter and live the “Hardknock Life” and JMart isn’t the first to fail. But JMart does have have his lawsuit vehicle gassed up at the expense of the O-line.

    All of this could have been avoided if JMart had taken a man’s advice from his father or even the cautious advice of his mother but no, he’d rather be a kamikaze of the Dolphins & the NFL.
    Jonathan Martin please go away!!!

  73. brh24 says: Feb 18, 2014 3:53 AM

    Amazing! Even if you read his last name, backwards ***OTINGOCNI” It means something and it has Wikipedia page! I need to edit that page right now and erase everything that is there!!!

  74. nyneal says: Feb 18, 2014 6:01 AM

    The only people who are worse than this guy are the people defending him.
    This guy is a creep and he really needs to be put in a rubber room some place and fogotten about.

    Message for Jerry Jones:

    Don’t! Just don’t!

    …you know what I’m talking about.

  76. bonniebengal says: Feb 18, 2014 6:45 AM

    Now he needs to start therapy immediately. He’s got some problems. He needs to take steps towards fixing them, and maybe then an NFL team might take chance on him mid season or so.

  77. dcapettini says: Feb 18, 2014 8:08 AM

    If this turd were any good, Miami would have missed him when he was suspended. As it was, they did just fine without him. It is difficult to understand why so many fans are anxious to take on this jerk. He isn’t all that and he is a total pain in the butt. Add that to being stupid and he isn’t worth it, believe me.

  78. fordwuzanazi says: Feb 18, 2014 8:12 AM

    Another dirty secret the NFL would like to stay quiet: Steroids causes serious mental issues like bipolar disorder and other hormone imbalances in the brain that lead to depression and lots of the emotional and brain issues being blamed on concussions.

  79. metitometin says: Feb 18, 2014 8:16 AM

    Can he make up his mind? One day he’s tearing Martin apart, the next day he’s apologizing. This is the very definition of a mentally disturbed person who has bipolar disorder.

  80. officialgame says: Feb 18, 2014 9:19 AM

    “Free us from Richie”.

  81. thestatsishere says: Feb 18, 2014 10:38 AM

    If this guy had any sense, he’d crawl under a sofa and just hide there for 3 months.

  82. uglydingo says: Feb 18, 2014 10:40 AM

    Richie deserves to be on the Mt Rushmore of tweeters. A legend in his own lunchtime.

  83. marima07 says: Feb 18, 2014 8:04 PM

    Incognito obviously has mental issues, but unlike Martin’s, his issues don’t present in a sympathetic way.

    It’s like environmentalists fighting to save the Polar Bears, but have no trouble with millions of birds (including the endangered Bald Eagles) getting killed by the Wind Farms they promote.

    Just because he’s not as likeable, it doesn’t mean he is beyond redemption. He needs help with his behavior, just like Martin.
