I wonder how Pro Football Focus ranked RI in terms of run blocking and pass protection? Wasn't Tannehill sacked frequently?
That said, I always thought that RI was a superior player with a 5 cent brain. I'm not comfortable with all the texting stuff that has come out...it's a little beyond extreme. If the current O-line would welcome him, I'd say he's probably worth whatever his scratch-and-dent price will be.SKOL VIKINGS!

Not a chance I would sign this guy. With the already ongoing investigation of Priefer because of Kluwe's accusations, we've already been scrutinized by some. Adding Incognito would only draw more attention that we don;t need.

Would not mind having Incognito at all. Ithink with some true leadersip he can get his head on right and be the dominant football player that he is but he will have the respect of others around the league as well as around the world.. Incognito between Kalil and Sullivan would be a phenomenal left side on the line.. the question now becomes what would it cost to sign him..?

No thanks the guy's as much a fruit loop as Martin. Sorry if anyone is offended by that. The difference being he seems to be more aggressively so which can cause more troubles.

This report also glosses and excuses the fact that Martin was just as guilty of doing the same thing to other players; apparently, he just wanted to "fit in". Can they all use that excuse then? Maybe if they just talked honestly with each other, they would have realized they are all hurting inside. Or maybe Marin's emotional problems, which are NOT in dispute, had a HUGE role in this.
To me, this will be the excuse the NFL has been looking for to police the players even more; I expect to see microphones on ALL players in the years to come, with fines being levied for anyone saying anything "potty-mouthed" on the field.
I just don't get this; men are pigs to each other, and most of us would not want it any other way. If I fell down and bloodied my knee, my best friend's first response would be, "Are you ok?" then when he saw I was, he would follow that with, "Get up and stop being a pussy. You aren't going to cry, right?" Will he now be fined if he and I happen to be NFL players on the practice field?Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.

The offensive line, more than any other unit, needs to work together as a unit. How does Incognito mesh with the rest of the O-line ? I can't see it happening.
Frankly, he's not that good of a football player anyway.

Actually, to get back to the meat of this thread, I really don't think we NEED Incognito. I rend to allow myself to be derailed a LOT, so I'll just leave it at that... =)Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.
