Richie Incognito‘s career in Miami is reportedly over.
The offensive lineman is currently suspended indefinitely for his role in the alleged bullying of teammate Jonathan Martin, who voluntarily left the team last week. The NFL’s review process prevents the Dolphins from cutting Incognito immediately, but The Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero quotes a team source saying that the veteran is no longer welcome within the organization.
“He’s done,” the source told Salguero. “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.”
Salguero’s source also confirmed earlier reports by ESPN’s Adam Schefter of Incognito leaving a vulgar and racially charged voice mail for Martin back in April, as well as the fact that team officials have heard the message.
“Whatever the procedure and even if Incognito is not cut,” Salguero writes, “the source tells me the plan is to not allow Incognito to return to the locker room and definitely not to wear the Miami uniform again.”
Incognito’s contract is set to expire at the end of this season.
