Former Dolphins guard Richie Incognito returned to the Twitterverse on Wednesday after spending a number of weeks in rehab receiving treatment for his stress. As is his wont, he got right to work on Twitter, writing out inspiring messages and retweeting his fans who were happy to hear from him again. And, well, this.
Feels good to finally be #FREEEEEE— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) March 19, 2014
Collectively, all of us say ...
Richie Incognito says he wants to return to the Dolphins. Uh, good luck with that...— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) March 20, 2014
But Incognito is serious. While Martin has taken a job with the 49ers, leading to hopeful speculation that perhaps the Seahawks would sign Incognito (can you imagine?), Incognito is on the free agent market, checking in at No. 154 on the CBSSports.com list. He's hopeful that an offer from Miami is forthcoming.
"Returning to the Dolphins was my number one goal from the time I got suspended," Incognito told the station. "I want to return to the community in Miami and resume my playing career as soon as possible."
Asked about his reaction to Martin's signing with San Francisco, Incognito said he was excited for his former teammate and that it was "awesome." As for him, he thinks a return to his old job is the most appropriate way forward.
"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."
