    Time to tell Richie Incognito ‘thanks but no thanks’

    Speaking of risk and reward, those issues are front and center with Incognito. The St. Louis Rams knew all about Incognito’s checkered past when they drafted him in the third round in 2005. He’d been such a bad boy off the field at Nebraska the coaching staff suspended him for the 2004 season, prompting his transfer to Oregon, where NCAA rules prohibited him from playing. His problems continued with the Rams to the point where, despite having started him in 44 games over four seasons, they let him go last December. Buffalo picked him up but, despite the lack of any depth on its offensive line, also decided against keeping him.

    Sparano and offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo reportedly had dinner with Ignognito Monday night and he was scheduled to work out Tuesday. Sparano and DeGuglielmo are no-nonsense guys who have spent their adult lives around offensive linemen, and one can imagine Incognito telling them everything they wanted to hear about cleaning up his act. Still, how can anyone - including Incognito himself - predict how he’ll react when, say, he gets clocked in the jaw by an opponent and no flag is thrown? And if officials see an altercation in which Incognito is involved, with his reputation, how would you expect them to react?

    Everyone can point to situations where a bad boy got straightened out. It’s certainly worked out that way of late with Randy Moss, although there were signs of him unraveling last year in New England as well. But it seems in 90 percent of these cases, the behavior doesn’t change and sooner rather than later the time comes to move on once again.
    Porter is gone. With Miami’s other draft needs and Bill Parcells’ reluctance to take receivers high in the draft, Bryant is likely not coming. As for Incognito, as much as the Dolphins need O-line depth, this should be a case of ‘good luck wherever you wind up.’

    note: What is the risk, what is the reward? If he works out you have a potential starter at G and a big, strong, explosive back up C. I say sign him. If he causes problems you release him- no big deal.

    having to fight for a starting job should make him hungry to please. Plus with our no-nonsense guys, MIA is the best place for him, IMO. He seems like he is a small risk but bigger reward to me.

    He was not in a good situation in St. Louis , Its understandable why he did what he did..

    Players get frustrated...

    If we get him I think he will mature here and def earn his money..

    I think we really need this guy...I think he can come in and start, if not he can contribute, He is young and nasty..

    He is our type of guy..Him being a phin at this point makes perfect sense.

    He is a tricky player to add to your roster. Miami should be very careful with him. Sparano should be careful. His contract should be written very carefully. They should load it with stipulations. "If you do this, you get this" and "If you do that, you get nothing".

    Also, the South Florida heat straightens a lot of guys up itself. LOL. It humbles you after awhile.
    Show me the playoffs. No excuses!

    I agree this guy could possibly be a starter on our O-line, if we can have him keep his nasty attitude on the field under control it would be a great move.
