When last we heard from free-agent guard Richie Incognito, he had checked into a facility following an altercation involving his Ferrari and a baseball bat.
He has now apparently emerged, and he’s back on Twitter.
“I missed you guys,” Incognito said. “Thanks goes out to my family and friends for the tremendous amount of support.”
In a later message, he said: “Looking forward to getting back to work ASAP.”
Incognito hit the market last week, able to sign with any team. Now that he has completed his treatment program (the specifics aren’t known regarding the treatment received or the condition treated), the next step will be finding a team willing to take a chance on a guy who can still play at a high level.
It’s good that he sought help for his situation, and we wish him the best as he tries to resume his career. Guys who have done far worse have gotten second and third chances. Incognito deserves the opportunity to show that he has found a way to overcome his issues and be a productive member of an NFL team.
