Richie Incognito is ready to return to the NFL. More specifically, the free agent offensive lineman wants to rejoin the Miami Dolphins, the team he was with when he became the center of a bullying scandal that led to his suspension for the final eight games of last season. "Returning to the Dolphins was my No. 1 goal from the time I got suspended," Incognito told WSVN Channel 7 in Miami/Fort Lauderdale in a phone interview on Wednesday. He added: "I want to return to the community in Miami and resume my playing career as soon as possible.

The bullying allegations against Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito potentially raise a troubling inconsistency for the franchise. Incognito came to the team with a checkered past -- including getting kicked off the Nebraska and Oregon football teams -- so did the Dolphins devote sufficient resources to watching him? That he was a member of the team's leadership council, and last season was given the Good Guy award by the beat writers who cover the team, underscore the conflicting feelings within the building about Incognito, who is accused of threatening and harassing fellow offensive lineman Jonathan Martin.

It appears the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal has continued to take a toll on Richie Incognito. The offensive lineman, who, along with two other teammates, was accused of persistent harassment of ex-teammate Jonathan Martin in an investigation conducted by the NFL, told Scottsdale, Ariz., police Thursday that he was responsible for damaging his Ferrari with a baseball bat. Incognito told a reporter from KSAZ-TV in Phoenix that he took a...

The NFL Players Assn. weighed in Tuesday on the alleged bullying case involving Miami Dolphins offensive linemen Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito, saying it will "insist on a fair investigation" by the NFL. Incognito is accused of harassing Martin, including a threatening chain of racially charged voice-mails and text messages. "We expect that the NFL and its clubs create a safe and professional workplace for all players, and that owners, executives, coaches and players should set the best standards and examples," the players union said in a written statement.

Suspended Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito was spotted Friday at Los Angeles International Airport after arriving on an early morning flight from Miami. A television reporter from the ABC affiliate in Miami was waiting for him when he stepped off the plane. The reporter asked Incognito about the racial slurs he allegedly used, accusations that he assaulted a woman and whether he was in L.A. to apologize to teammate Jonathan Martin, who grew up in Southern California and lives here in the off-season.

Suspended Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito sent messages to teammate Jonathan Martin that were threatening and racially charged, according to Fox Sports. The website, citing "multiple sources," said Monday the Dolphins will share the text and voicemail messages with the NFL, which is investigating the situation. Incognito was suspended by the Dolphins late Sunday for conduct detrimental to the team. Martin, who was the starting right tackle, walked away from the team last month after allegedly being taunted by teammates in the cafeteria.

When video surfaced this summer of Riley Cooper using racial slurs at a concert, the Philadelphia Eagles receiver apologized profusely. He met with the media and looked to be on the verge of tears. He briefly left the team to seek sensitivity training. He came back on bended knee. That hasn't been the case so far with Miami guard Richie Incognito, who has been suspended indefinitely by the Dolphins for conduct detrimental to the team. Teammate Jonathan Martin provided at least one voice message and text messages, allegedly from Incognito, that are harassing and include racial slurs.

Imagine yourself taking a job where, for the first year or two, you have to put up with verbal taunts and physical intimidation from your more senior co-workers; where you are expected to serve their every whim, submit to involuntary head shaving and pick up the tab for thousands of dollars worth of meals that those more senior workers consume. You probably would say, “Take this job and shove it.” That is pretty much what second-year tackle Jonathan Martin told the Miami Dolphins this week when he left the team and returned home to Los Angeles.

If you have any interest in the complex and nuanced dynamics of workplace bullying and harassment, you must sit down with the newly released report about what, exactly, happened in and out of the Miami Dolphins locker room that led Jonathan Martin to walk away from the team halfway through the season last year. The 144-page report is a masterpiece of evenhandedness, produced by a team of attorneys led by Ted Wells, whose New York litigation firm was retained by the NFL to investigate the circumstances around Martin's departure and his subsequent accusations against his teammates.

Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin contemplated suicide twice in 2013, according to the report released Friday by independent investigator Ted Wells. The Wells report, in the works since November, identifies Dolphins offensive linemen Richie Incognito, John Jerry and Mike Pouncey as the perpetrators of systematic harassment and bullying of Martin and others. The report said Martin developed “an odd but seemingly close” friendship with Incognito, and participated in off-color jokes to fit in. According to a psychologist retained by Wells, such behavior “is consistent with the behavior of a victim of abusive treatment.” Martin walked away from the Dolphins midway through the season, and Incognito was subsequently suspended for three months.

The investigator looking into the abrupt departure of Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin released his months-long report Friday, concluding that three starters on the offensive line "engaged in a pattern of harassment" directed not only at Martin but other players and an assistant trainer. The 144-page report, prepared by independent investigator Ted Wells, identifies linemen Richie Incognito, John Jerry and Mike Pouncey as the instigators in the locker room. Incognito, a Pro Bowl guard who recently finished a three-month suspension, is a free agent and isn't expected to return to the Dolphins.

The news that Jim Fregosi died today brought sadness. He was one of the franchise's first stars, a catalyst in the 1970 chase for the American League West championship. He got the franchise that banner nearly a decade later, when he managed the Angels to their first division title. Death is personal, and this one was hard for me. We weren't close. I enjoyed the handful of times I interviewed him, but I couldn't say we had any sort of relationship, at least from his perspective.

Days after the NFL said it was ready to make history by welcoming its first openly gay player, a report indicates that one team in the league promoted an intolerant locker room culture that harassed a player to the brink of suicide. Three Miami Dolphins players used "racial slurs and other racially derogatory language" as well as "homophobic name-calling and improper physical touching" to bully teammate Jonathan Martin as well as another player and an assistant trainer, both unnamed, according to independent investigator Ted Wells, who filed his report to the league on Friday.

A lot of TV talk this weekend will be devoted to the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos, but that doesn't mean the rest of the NFL has been packed up and put into deep freeze until next fall. And nowhere is that more obvious than NBC, which aired the first interview with former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin since he left the team last October. Martin created headlines last fall when he abruptly left the Dolphins and reportedly checked himself into a Florida hospital to be treated for emotional distress.

Miami's Richie Incognito remains suspended until an NFL investigation into his situation is completed, the Dolphins announced Monday. In November, the Dolphins suspended Incognito indefinitely after text and voice messages surfaced in which he used racially charged language to threaten fellow Miami offensive lineman Jonathan Martin, who had walked away from the team a week earlier. Incognito was suspended without pay for two weeks, then received pay for the next four weeks of his ban. The suspension ran its course in accordance to the collective bargaining agreement, and the Dolphins were facing a decision this week about whether to release him, reinstate him or work out a deal with him to remain suspended with pay. By not cutting Incognito loose, the playoff-minded Dolphins are ensured that the Pro Bowl guard won't be joining a contender for the postseason.
