Richie Incognito's NFL career is finished

Former Miami Dolphins offensive guard Richie Incognito is determined to return to the AFC East team for the 2014 NFL season, and he's letting everyone know by broadcasting his wishes.

Incognito has said that he would love to return back to Miami, claiming that it has been his goal since he was suspended.

But let's be honest, this guy will never play for the Dolphins again and any suggestion others wise is simply ridiculous.

We can go further than that and really say that there surely can't be an NFL team that would like to have the baggage that comes with Incognito, unless a crazy team like the Oakland Raiders want to get involved.  

If he was a star then maybe he would have another chance in the league, but it's seems unlikely that a team will be willing to gamble on an average player. 

Let's just go back in time and remember what the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reported last November when he was discussing the Dolphins cutting ties with Incognito.

“He’s done,” a ranking club source said Monday. “There are procedures in place and everyone wants to be fair. The NFL is involved. But from a club perspective he’ll never play another game here.”

These comments came at the time of his indefinite suspension from the Dolphins, which eventually turned into his release once the Ted Wells report was published.

The report became the findings of the investigation into the bullying scandal that rocked Miami and the NFL, with Incognito painted as the aggressor and ex-Dolphin Jonathan Martin as the victim, amongst other players that were involved.

Even though information from Wells was damaging to the reputation of Incognito, it's seems the guard is so at odds with understanding what he's done.

In an interview this week, Incognito admitted that he only 'skimmed' the report and that he did read it properly.

If he's so intent on coming back and playing for the same team that he practically destroyed, you would think he would have something about him and properly read the report or at least not tell the world that he hasn't read it.

It smacks of a guy who still thinks he's entitled to do what he wants when he wants.

The evidence against Incognito is overwhelming damming, yet he's still unable to show remorse.

That's not the type of player that you want on your team.

Even in a statement of intent to come back into the NFL he still manages to come off as an ungrateful child blaming his situation on others.

"I want a clean slate," he said. "I'm at peace with everything that happened. I'm at peace with the attorneys and myself. Go to my Twitter page. I'm back online, and I'm not mad at anybody.

"Dolphins fans, Richie is well," he said. "Richie wants to come back and play. But the business has to handle the business end, and that's it."

If Incognito returns to the NFL it will be for a severely unlucky fan base, but it won't be the Dolphins that's for sure.
