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.
