Miami morning take: Richie Incognito edition

11/5/2013

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Tuesday from around the web:

  • Dave Hyde of the Sun Sentinel wonders if the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin saga will cost Dolphins coaches and front office executives their jobs.

Morning take: It all depends on how the team handles and responds to this situation. There is already enough culpability that this harassment was allowed to fester in the locker room. Head coach Joe Philbin must fix this problem as soon as possible.

  • Armando Salguero and Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald say that the "dysfunctional Dolphins" are the talk of the league.

Morning take: I estimate that about 75 media members showed up at the Dolphins Monday to cover this national story, which included CNN and ABC News. The Dolphins are certainly getting a lot of attention, but it’s not the kind of exposure they want.

  • ESPN.com St. Louis Rams reporter Nick Wagoner takes a look back at Incognito’s troubled days with the St. Louis Rams.

Morning take: Incognito was described as out of control in St. Louis and kicked off the team after four seasons. He essentially wore out his welcome at every stop.

  • Brian Briggane of the Palm Beach Post writes about Incognito’s slim chances of playing in the NFL next season.

Morning take: Incognito, 30, is a free agent after this season and still has some football left in him. He made the Pro Bowl just a year ago. However, he has a long rap sheet and the Martin situation was potentially his last straw.
