He’s still in recovery from hip surgery that could cost him the start of the regular season, and his birthday party made news for the second year in a row.
But Dolphins center Mike Pouncey is apparently clear from league punishment over the team’s bullying scandal.
So he’s got that going for him.
According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, the NFL indicated that Pouncey wouldn’t face any kind of suspension from the investigation, with a league spokesman saying: “I don’t anticipate having to address the issue again.”
Pouncey, Richie Incognito and John Jerry were all named in the Ted Wells report for a pattern of abusive behavior toward young linemen including Jonathan Martin.
Pouncey’s the only one left, and once he gets his hip well (and then goes through a “medical evaluation” the league requires), he should be back on the field.
That’s a relief, since he can’t stay out of the news otherwise. He was accused of punching a man at a club this weekend, though no charges have been filed. At least he had the good sense to not wear his “Free Hernandez” hat this year.
