Incognito wants to return to the Dolphins

Richie Incognito recently resurfaced on Twitter, after exiting the facility he entered to address severe mental stress he was experiencing in the aftermath of the release of the Ted Wells report.

And despite all the things that went wrong in Miami for Incognito, Incognito wants to return to Miami.

Returning to the Dolphins was my number one goal from the time I got suspended,” Incognito told WSVN-TV on Wednesday.

Richie’s biggest problem is that his contract has expired, and that the Dolphins have shown no inclination to bring him back.  Still, he wants to come back.

“I want to return to the community in Miami and resume my playing career as soon as possible,” Incognito said.

He confirmed that he entered a private mental-health facility to deal with the stress he was experiencing.

“I was stressed,” Incognito said. “I believe in post traumatic stress syndrome, and I believe in private mental health care.”

Asked if he had a message for Miami fans, Richie slid into the third person.

“Dolphins fans, Richie is well,” Richie said. “Richie wants to come back and play.  But the business has to handle the business end, and that’s it.”

He makes it sound far simpler than it is.  Anyone can want to play for any NFL team.  Unless and until the NFL wants it, it’s not happening.

    I, like Richie Incognito, would like to play for the Dolphins.

    I, like Richie Incognito, will never play for the Dolphins.

    Where is Tony Dungy and the other NFL mentors who have sought out troubled players and helped them get back into the league?

    If Michael Vick gets welcomed back, why does Incognito get left swinging in the wind?

    Give him a chance Miami! If Ray Lewis or Michael Vick deserves a chance, Richie definitely deserves a shot. He was our best lineman and team mates liked him. Sign him to a team friendly prove you have changed contract and let the healing begin!

    Going waaaaayyyy out on a limb here, but I dare say Incognito will not be wearing a 49ers jersey this fall. Just a hunch.

    “If Michael Vick gets welcomed back, why does Incognito get left swinging in the wind?”

    POTENTIAL LAWSUIT thats why he gets left hanging in the wind plus the dude cant manage to shut the hell up on Twitter.

    Go to the Raiders! Richie

  7. joedirte says: Mar 20, 2014 7:34 AM

    If Incognito would have never gone on Twitter he would be on a team right now.

    They gave him happy pills. He said he’s all better now

  9. miriam45 says: Mar 20, 2014 7:36 AM

    I feel sorry for him

  10. toddm1016 says: Mar 20, 2014 7:37 AM

    Sounds like he checked out of the facility a little too early if he thinks he’s playing for the Dolphins again.

  11. joetoronto says: Mar 20, 2014 7:37 AM

    “He makes it sound far simpler than it is. Anyone can want to play for any NFL team. Unless and until the NFL wants it, it’s not happening.”

    If the lowest form of life, Martin, can get back in the NFL, than Incognoito can and should get back in too.

    I would like Richie back with the Dolphins. He didn’t do anything any worse than plenty of other players out there. How about the ones who have had DUI’s and killed people?? They got back into the game. Jonathon Martin was as much to blame, he was a wimp.

  13. finsfaninsc says: Mar 20, 2014 7:40 AM

    I think Incognito will do well for another team. Just not the dolphins. The Dolphins want to put this behind them and move on. They would get blasted if they brought him back. Its all about perception.

  14. jimmyt says: Mar 20, 2014 7:42 AM

    Richie is just too tough for the new NFL, where sensitivity and diversity training are the order of the day, where Adam and Steve can openly play and everyone gets a trophy at the end of the season because they are all very special.

  15. nygmann says: Mar 20, 2014 7:49 AM

    It is not going to happen. Hope that college degree he graduated with was a good one. He’ll need it!

  16. countmahdrof says: Mar 20, 2014 7:55 AM

    Vick killed dogs and is welcomed back. Martin bullies a 320 lb weirdo and is forever more a pariah. Welcome to today’s NFL and it’s new moral relativism. Europe, here we come!

  17. doctorrustbelt says: Mar 20, 2014 7:56 AM

    richie incognito is a sad, weak, lil’ creature.

  18. countmahdrof says: Mar 20, 2014 7:56 AM

    Make that Incognito bullies…..

  19. donschmidt72 says: Mar 20, 2014 7:59 AM

    Dolphin f

  20. rodge1 says: Mar 20, 2014 7:59 AM

    Bring him back Hickey, especially now that Cream Puff Martin is gone.

  21. 1harrypairatesties says: Mar 20, 2014 8:00 AM

    This guy is nothing but a bully. He’s not a football player. He’s not even a real man. I don’t care to here anymore about this guy. If some kid was constantly picking on your kid everyday when he goes to school you tell me how your kid would feel. I can tell you he wouldn’t want to go to school anymore. As a parent, how would YOU feel once your kid finally says something about it to you? This Incognito character needs some serious counciling. Learn how to be a better teammate. Learn how to be a better person.

  22. crazemastercraze says: Mar 20, 2014 8:02 AM

    Who does he think he is, Ricky Henderson?

    Have fun playing in the arena league douche bag!

  23. donschmidt72 says: Mar 20, 2014 8:03 AM

    Dolphin fans do not blame that meathead incognito we blame Martin!! Bring Richie back!!!!!!

  24. thenewguy12 says: Mar 20, 2014 8:08 AM

    Incognito gets left “swinging in the wind” because he has been booted from or told not to come back from EVERY team he has ever played on. Kicked off Nebtaska, kept fighting with teammates, lasted less than a week at Oregon, kicked out of St Louis, Bills had zero interest in bringing him back, kicked out of Miami….the best thing Richie can do is fix Richie and continue his program of therapy, judging by his recent behavior, he belongs nowhere near a football field.

  25. coltzfan166 says: Mar 20, 2014 8:11 AM

    Lol good one Richie.

  26. shakespeare22 says: Mar 20, 2014 8:15 AM

    A star QB rapes two women, another QB is involved in dog fighting, two players commit vehicular homicide and another knocks a female out ON TAPE and they are all welcomed back. This guy acted like a 5th grader and he’s blackballed. Go figure. Go ahead and remove my comments because the truth will set you free.

  27. ez4u2sa says: Mar 20, 2014 8:37 AM

    Hit the road, sport. You had your chance.

  28. unclebluck says: Mar 20, 2014 8:55 AM

    Ritchi is at best an average OL. With the baggage he brings I cant imagine any team picking up the guy. Miami you had enough trouble protecting your QB with guys like Ritchie….get some guys that can block…why do you think my Bills let him go after 1/2 a season….we know all about sub par OL’s that cant block….

  29. sdelmonte says: Mar 20, 2014 9:12 AM

    Still waiting for the league to announce some sort of discipline for the players involved. Might be a long wait.

  30. getitrightflorio says: Mar 20, 2014 9:34 AM

    Get it done Hickey. Richie know we are on the verge of taking the AFCE.

  31. wewantmoretebowandfavrearticles says: Mar 20, 2014 9:37 AM

    49ers seem like the ideal destination for him.

  32. miasports92 says: Mar 20, 2014 10:05 AM

    welcome back richie

  33. faulkn22 says: Mar 20, 2014 10:48 AM

    Lions could use another interior lineman.

  34. brettfavresmidget says: Mar 20, 2014 12:10 PM

    I see him ending up with the 49ers.

  35. laxcoach37 says: Mar 20, 2014 1:59 PM

    Incognito did not play well enough to deserve a “new” contract. The M. Vick comparison is not a good one because when Vick left the league he was under Contract. Incognito got his pay for the last suspension period and is now a FA. The Fins would never sign him because of the controversy AND he did not perform well enough to be resigned. This coming from a Team that has arguably the biggest Offensive line problem. That speaks volumes!

  36. finsguy says: Mar 20, 2014 2:10 PM

    Welcome home Ritchie. God I hope we take him back. The line was bad last year, with the notable exception of Ritchie who played pretty well.

  37. bearshaterseverywhere says: Mar 20, 2014 3:26 PM

    Ticking Time Bomb. I wouldn’t want that guy on my worst enemies team. Lunatic.

  38. kevo95 says: Mar 20, 2014 3:48 PM

    He a little cry baby bully

  39. wde325 says: Mar 20, 2014 4:18 PM

    No, just no! Miami is trying to move on from the bullying “scandal” and the HUGE embarrassment of having one of the worst offensive lines in NFL history (58 sacks given up), Incognito should move on as well. People keep forgetting that, and are defending either Martin or Incognito. Miami`s offensive line SUCKED last season; Shula would`ve never tolerated surrendering 58 sacks!
