Incognito’s four-game suspension, which was to conclude Dec. 2, has been extended with pay, as first reported by the NFL Network, until the NFL completes its investigation into the Dolphins’ workplace.
The team suspended Incognito on Nov. 3 for conduct detrimental, including threatening and using a racial slur against teammate Jonathan Martin.
The agreement was made on Nov. 21, the day Incognito’s grievance hearing was scheduled with the league and is the reason that he postponed the hearing, league sources told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
The agreement places a six-week cap on the length of Incognito’s suspension and reduces his unpaid suspension to two games which totals $470,588, according to sources.
With the six-week cap on Incognito’s suspension, independent arbitrator Ted Wells now has two more weeks to complete his investigation.
