Suspended Miami Dolphins offensive guard Richie Incognito was meeting with NFL investigator Ted Wells at the team facility on Friday, according to ESPN.com.
NBC6 TV in Miami shot footage of Incognito arriving at the Dolphins’ facility. ESPN.com reported that Incognito met with Wells on Thursday night and was also meeting with him again Friday.
At the Dolphins’ request, the league is looking into the issues that led up to offensive tackle Jonathan Martin walking away from the team Oct. 28, citing bullying from Incognito and other teammates.
Incognito was suspended Nov. 3 after reportedly having text messages and voicemails he left for Martin turned over to the team and the NFL as part of the investigation. Incognito was suspended indefinitely, but the actual suspension can last a maximum of four games, per the collective bargaining agreement.
The total suspension costs cannot exceed four game checks, plus one additional game check, or roughly $1.2 million. Incognito filed a grievance against the Dolphins to recover lost wages and to be reinstated on the roster. The grievance hearing was postponed until after Wells finishes his investigation.
If the Dolphins win the arbitration hearing, the team still has just 10 days left to decide what to do with Incognito. Under the collective bargaining agreement, his suspension would end on Dec. 1 when the team plays the New York Jets.
