Why is Richie Incognito in trouble again?

Richie Incognito cannot stay out of the headlines. The Miami Dolphins offensive lineman has been under fire during the ongoing investigation relating to Jonathan Martin leaving the Dolphins due to 'bullying' last year and now could find himself in hot water for joking about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Matt Barkley.

Incognito tweeted earlier today: "good morning twitter" which seems harmless enough, however one user with a parody Eagles quarterback Nick Foles account replied:.

"@68INCOGNITO morning! Want to help me haze @mattbarkley today while he's still a rookie? Maybe give him the old poop mouth? Text me..."

Incognito then jokingly replied: "@RiseOfFoles @MattBarkley I'm doooooown. Jkjk"

At this point a suitably surprised Barkley joined in, tweeting alongside a picture of the conversation: "What the…..??"

It seems that Incognito likes a joke, it would appear that it was taking a joke too far which forced Jonathan Martin to leave the Dolphins last year.

Hopefully Barkley will take this latest episode in good spirt and that it will not implicate Incognito further in any investigation.

Barkley had playing time in just three games for the Eagles this year as the real Nick Foles became the teams starter and led them to the playoffs.

Incognito played in the first eight games of the season before being left out of the team indefinitely. It remains unclear whether he will rejoin the team next season.
