Is Richie Incognito getting a second chance?

Published Add your comment

Disgraced lineman Richie Incognito may get another chance at an NFL career after Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis said he would not rule out signing him.

Incognito became a free agent this summer after Ted Wells' report into bullying at the Miami Dolphins implicated him in the publicly played out scandal of the treatment of fellow lineman Jonanthan Martin. The scandal essentially ended both players' careers at the Dolphins and Incognito is looking for a new team, while Martin has been traded to the San Francisco 49ers.

According to ESPN, Incognito is keen to restart his NFL career and named the Dolphins and Raiders as possible destinations for a contract, as the temperament problems he has had to deal with throughout his career and the Martin bullying scandal have turned off suitors. ESPN claim the Dolphins have made it plain that they are not interested in re-signing him, but Davis seemed a little more open to the deal.

"I'd have to think about that," was his response when asked what he would do if the Raiders' general manager Reggie McKenzie brought forward the possibility of signing Incognito.

Were Oakland to go ahead and sign Incognito they would need to get the all clear from NFL-NFLPA medical advisors after a full evaluation to get clearance to draw up a contract. This is just another obstacle in the way of Incognito getting back into the NFL and many believe any hopes are in vain.
