A television reporter from the ABC affiliate in Miami was waiting for him when he stepped off the plane. The reporter asked Incognito about the racial slurs he allegedly used, accusations that he assaulted a woman and whether he was in L.A. to apologize to teammate Jonathan Martin, who grew up in Southern California and lives here in the off-season.
Incognito politely declined to answer any questions, saying now is not “the time or the place.”
While it’s possible he could be meeting with Martin, Incognito is also represented by an agent from the area, David Dunn of Athletes First, which is located in Laguna Hills.
Also Friday, the National Football Post reported that, as a leader of the Dolphins’ offensive line, Incognito would hold meetings at a South Florida strip club and would fine players if they did not attend.
“Richie wanted to set up Richie’s world as a way for everybody to act,” the website quoted an unnamed source as saying. “Richie thinks everybody should act that way. He doesn’t get that some guys aren’t into that behavior. Some guys don’t want to constantly explain to their wife or girlfriend why they have to go to a strip club.”
