Richie Incognito cleared by NFL to return to playing

By Leighton Schneider,

The NFL has cleared Richie Incognito to return to all activity and regular-season participation.

Incognito had been suspended by the Miami Dolphins after it was found that he and a couple of other players bullied offensive lineman Jonathan Martin.

Incognito will now be able to sign with any team and play immediately.

ESPN reports that there are between three and five teams that have talked with Incognito and he could sign by the end of the week.

This news follows a Monday meeting between Incognito and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith told reporters that the visit did not mean they would sign Incognito, notes The Associated Press.

That was the first time he went to an NFL facility since he was suspended by the Dolphins in November 2013.

Incognito had to be looked at by a medical professional and had to complete treatment before he could be cleared by the NFL for activities.

Incognito has started every game of his eight-year career. He has played for the Dolphins, Buffalo Bills and St. Louis Rams. He was a third round draft pick by the Rams.
