The Dolphins need to make a decision on Richie Incognito, and they have less than three weeks to decide his future.
According to Pro Football Talk, a few playoff contenders will also be monitoring the status of Incognito’s future with the Dolphins as well.
Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, Incognito’s suspension for conduct detrimental to the Dolphins is indefinite. Under the labor deal between the NFL and the players’ union, however, the suspension can last a maximum of four games.
This means that, unless the Dolphins suspend Incognito for fewer than four games, the Dolphins will have to decide what to do with him by Monday, December 2 — the day after the fourth game of any suspension.
During his appearance on NBC’s Sunday Night Football, Peter King reported that “at least one playoff contender would be interested in adding him to the roster.”
