Plenty of Dolphins players would welcome guard Richie Incognito back to the team. Team management obviously feels otherwise, as evidenced by its ongoing suspension of Incognito.

Lost in the speculation about a coming legal fight between the Dolphins and tackle Jonathan Martin is the reality that the ball sits on the tee for formal proceedings between Incognito and the Dolphins.

We’ve repeatedly heard that Incognito will challenge his suspension via a grievance. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Incognito currently is considering all options, with multiple angles under consideration to support his position that the suspension was not justified.

The attack could come by challenging the substance of Martin’s complaints, by arguing that Incognito’s conduct toward Martin was no different than the conduct of other teammates, and/or by claiming he was merely “toughening up” Martin at the behest of the coaching staff.
