Last time we checked in with Richie Incognito, he was on his way to a psychiatric care facility in Arizona to seek relief from the fallout of the Jonathan Martin bullying investigation.
Now, it appears things are looking up for the former Miami Dolphins lineman. Joe Kinsey of Busted Coverage spotted several recently uploaded Instagram photos of the big man chilling poolside somewhere tropical (likely California).
Entourage producer Doug Ellin posted a picture of Incognito with a young woman in a bikini. He captioned the picture, "Richie Incognito stole my girl. Ah well."
Incognito also latched on to a man’s arm with his teeth because it’s not a party until someone gets bitten:
Kinsey points out that Incognito had a drink in his hand in one of the pictures.
"And here you thought that Richie Incognito was in a rehab facility for alcohol and anger…I’m not 100 % sure that’s an alcoholic beverage in his hand so I’ll let you make up your own mind," Kinsey writes.
There’s no way to be sure what’s in that drink. It could be coconut water, or it could be a margarita. With that said, a return to hard partying would be problematic for Incognito, who’s trying to get back in the league’s good graces.
According to ESPN’s Jeff Legwold, the free-agent lineman recently expressed interest in playing for the Oakland Raiders, though Raiders owner Mark Davis said he would “think about [it]” before making such a move.
Where will Incognito end up? That much is unclear, although judging by these images, it appears he isn’t too concerned. He’s got people to chew and pool parties to attend.
