By now, most of the country is at least somewhat aware of whom Richie Incognito is, which ironically contradicts his very surname.
Trouble seems to have a way of finding this guy, or perhaps the other way around. In any case, one thing that keeps getting overlooked or forgotten amidst all of the drama surrounding the bully incident is that Incognito is a pretty darn good football player. And, whether you like it or not, good football players at an incredibly cheap price are beyond difficult to find.
According to Bleacher Report’s Lead Writer Mike Freeman, most NFL execs believe Incognito will almost certainly be on a roster for the 2014 season. Freeman also learned this about Richie’s pending return:
I've been told that teams have been combing through Incognito's background for any incidents not generally known, so as to eliminate any potential surprises should they sign him.
"He's not a good guy," said one general manager, "but we're not a league of good guys. There are some bad guys in football, but it's football, not the Salvation Army. He can play, if the commissioner allows it, he'll get another job."
It’s worth noting that nearly the entire Dolphins locker room defended Incognito as the story developed back in October.
Incognito is a former Pro Bowler and team captain who is known for his ferocity and aggression on the football field. But after numerous issues surrounding his character over the years, this guy is sure to come at an incredible bargain. Most teams will probably steer clear of him altogether, but there will always be those desperate few looking to fill a glaring hole in their roster.
