BOSTON (CBS) – Disgraced and suspended Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito sat down with Jay Glazer of FOX Sports to vindicate his name after the alleged bullying of teammate Jonathan Martin.
Martin left the team facility on October 28 after a reported incident in the cafeteria and hasn’t been heard from since.
Gresh & Zo: Where’s The Line Drawn For Hazing In Sports?
Both Andy Gresh and Scott Zolak weighed in on the interview during Monday’s show and feel that Incognito, voted year after year as one of the NFL’s dirtiest players, came out looking surprisingly credible, and feel there’s way more to the story than what’s being lead on.
“I’m going to give Richie Incognito a lot of credit,” said Gresh. “I think what you find is someone who comes across [in the interview] as very believable and honest about the situation.
They played the audio from the interview, where Incognito talked bluntly about the allegations and his reputation as a dirty player.
“I’ve never shied away to talk about my past,” said Incognito during the interview. “I’ve been a cancer in locker rooms in my past. I have been selfish and I haven’t been a good teammate. And from where I started to where I am now it’s a world of difference.”
Incognito went on to say that he’s learned from the mistakes of his past, and maybe after all this he needs to consider changing his ways yet again.
