The Buccaneers were the first team to meet with guard Richie Incognito this offseason, but his chances of landing a job in Tampa likely dimmed on Tuesday when the team traded for Logan Mankins.
That might not be his only possible landing spot, though. Colts coach Chuck Pagano said that the team would be looking at several players this week as teams make their way toward their initial 53-man rosters and that no one in Indianapolis was dismissing the idea of adding Incognito because of his history.
“Anybody that comes available, we’ll discuss. We will not, based on anything, say yea or nay based on history, this, that or the other,” Pagano said, via Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star. “If it makes sense, if it’s going to help us win and it’s the best thing for this team and this organization moving forward, it doesn’t matter whether it’s Richie or anybody else. We’ll do what’s right for this organization and what’s best for this team and what gives us the best chance to win.”
The Colts lost guard Donald Thomas for the season with a quad injury and they’ve seen their interior depth stretched even further by injuries to center Khaled Holmes and rookie guard Jack Mewhort.
