Incognito returns to Twitter and offers apology
After Richie Incognito deleted his Twitter account Friday in the wake of an independent investigator's report on the Miami Dolphins locker room situation, he returned to the social media website Monday and apologised to team-mate Jonathan Martin early Tuesday morning.
I would like to send Jonathan my apologies as well. Until someone tells me different you are still my brother. No hard feelings :)— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) February 18, 2014
Incognito earlier greeted his Twitter following and apologised for his behavior in relation to the social media site.
What's up TWITTER Happy Monday— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) February 17, 2014
I apologize for acting like a big baby the last few days. This has all been so much on me and my family. I just want to play football— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) February 17, 2014
I want everyone to know I'm in good spirits and looking forward to playing again one day— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) February 17, 2014
The report released Friday by attorney Ted Wells found that Incognito was one of three Dolphins starters who subjected team-mate Martin to persistent harassing language and workplace bullying.
The NFLPA has said it will review the findings, and the NFL has had no comment on whether there will be further punishment.
Incognito was suspended in November for the remainder of the season and will be a free agent in March.
Incognito took to Twitter on Friday night, saying:
You could not define me in 144 years let alone 144 pages Mr Wells. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) February 15, 2014
He added one final tweet saying: "Goodbye Twitter. Be well and see you on the other side."
His account was deleted shortly thereafter, but as it turns out, "the other side" proved to be just three days away.
