MIAMI -- Guard Richie Incognito's suspension, imposed three months ago by the Miami Dolphins, ended on Tuesday.

Incognito took to Twitter Tuesday to thank his friends and family, as well as express his support for Jonathan Martin.

The NFL transaction was an administrative move agreed on by all parties to lift Incognito's suspension after the Super Bowl. Incognito's suspension was unpaid for two games.

This doesn't mean much in terms of Incognito's future with the Dolphins. Incognito was suspended on Nov. 4, 2013, following bullying and harassment allegations from Martin.

Both players and the Dolphins are awaiting the Ted Wells investigation to determine if further action is necessary.

Incognito will become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said last week that he doesn't think Incognito or Martin will return to the team in 2014. Martin is under contract and could be traded or released.
