The Miami Dolphins lifted the suspension imposed on offensive lineman Richie Incognito Tuesday.
As reported by the Sun Sentinal, the players half season suspension was ended in the week that the league is expected to publish the Well's report in which Incognito is a pivotal figure.
Incognito was originally suspended by the franchise in the aftermath of bullying accusations from former teammate Jonathan Martin in December 2013.
Since then both parties have made headlines with stories concerning inappropriate text messages the most recent exposé.
It is reported that the Dolphins had agreed from the outset to lift the suspension at the seasons end so as to allow the player to become an unrestricted free agent in the next few weeks.
And as such todays move can not be seen as an acknowledgment of the players innocence by the team.
Incognito has played in the NFL for the past nine seasons and was named in the 2012 Pro Bowl, but Miami owner Steve Ross has already stated he will not be re-signed for next season.
And with the findings of the investigation into the Dolphins' locker room culture yet to be revealed, it remains to be seen whether any franchise will be willing to take a risk on him.
