On Monday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald spoke with a “ranking club source” who claims the veteran offensive guard has played his last snap with the Dolphins, regardless of what the league uncovers.
“He’s done,” the source said. “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.”
The more we hear about Incognito’s alleged harassment of fellow offensive lineman Jonathan Martin, the more serious the matter sounds. The league has reportedly listened to a voicemail from Incognito that was left on Martin’s phone that proves Incognito used racial slurs toward Martin and even threatened to kill him. The voicemail was preceded by a report that claimed Martin is “genuinely scared” of what Incognito might do to him.
Salguero added that the Dolphins will go through the motions and wait for Incognito’s defense, but the team has grown tired of his antics. What was once perceived as an anger management issue and dirty play on the field has now grown into a much larger issue — one that could have legal implications in addition to disciplinary action from the NFL.
Incognito is 30 years old. Given his reputation and the shocking nature of the alleged voicemails and text messages he left for Martin, it would not be surprising if no NFL team chose to associate with him in the future. His career could be over.
