According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, the Broncos haven't had much stability on the offensive line this season, and members of the coaching staff are familiar with Incognito after coaching him in the Pro Bowl: 

The Dolphins suspended Incognito last November following accusations of bullying and using racial slurs against fellow offensive lineman Jonathan Martin. He was officially cleared to return to the NFL in August, though his suspension ended two days after the Super Bowl. 

Glazer reported in August that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers brought Incognito in for a workout, though the two sides never reached a deal.

An eight-year NFL veteran, Incognito has played for the Dolphins, St. Louis Rams and Buffalo Bills. He's unquestionably a talented player with a Pro Bowl appearance on his resume from the 2012 season, though there's a lot of baggage behind the scenes that comes with him. 

The Broncos could be a good fit for Incognito because of the infrastructure they have with leadership in the front office and Peyton Manning as the face of the franchise.
