The Buccaneers aren’t interested in Richie Incognito.
Unless they are.
Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that the Bucs are bringing Incognito in for a visit. If all goes well, he’ll be offered a job.
Coach Lovie Smith recently hinted that, if the team had any interest in Incognito, he already would have been in for a visit. But crappy performances from the team’s current crop of interior offensive lineman apparently has caused Smith and G.M. Jason Licht to revisit the situation.
For Incognito, it’s the first serious look he’s gotten since receiving a suspension from the Dolphins that lasted for the balance of the 2013 season.
The 31-year-old Incognito made it to the Pro Bowl in 2012. The league office may attempt to impose further discipline on Incognito. The NFLPA likely would resist, based on the argument that separate punishments for the same offense can’t be imposed by the team and the league.
