DAVIE, Fla. — Suspended Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito returned to the team facility Friday where he was expected to meet with NFL investigator Ted Wells regarding teammate Jonathan Martin‘s claim’s of bullying and harassment.
NBC6 in Miami got video of Incognito, and ESPN.com was able to separately confirm Incognito arrived with his legal team around the same time the Dolphins were practicing.
Wells also met with Incognito on Thursday night, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Wells spent the entire week — Monday through Friday — with the Dolphins talking to players and team executives. Getting Incognito’s side is one of the last pieces to the puzzle before the NFL gathers all its findings and puts together a full report.
Incognito also has a separate grievance with the Dolphins, which has been postponed until the conclusion of the NFL investigation. The Dolphins requested earlier this week that Incognito’s hearing be delayed while the franchise cooperated with Wells’ investigation.
Incognito is seeking reinstatement to the active roster and recovery of lost wages that could reach $1,176,470.59 under terms of the maximum team penalty.
Incognito’s four-game suspension concludes on Dec. 2. That is when the Dolphins must determine whether to put Incognito back on the 53-man roster or release him.
The Dolphins (5-5), who remain in the wild-card hunt in the AFC, will host the Carolina Panthers (7-3) on Sunday.
