Richie Incognito: I’m trying to weather the storm, this will pass


Richie Incognito, the Dolphins offensive lineman who’s suspended for harassing teammate Jonathan Martin, says he believes things will work out in the end.

Incognito made his first public comments when a reporter from Channel 7 in Miami caught up with him as he walked to his car. Incognito said that he didn’t want to talk about the case but does think he can move on.

“You know what, I’m just trying to weather the storm right now,” Incognito said. “This will pass.”

Asked about the reports that he left a voicemail with Martin calling him the N-word and threatening to kill him, Incognito refused to comment.

“You know, no comment right now,” Incognito said. “We’re just gonna kinda weather the storm, and that’s it.”

Incognito did not reply when asked about his status with the Dolphins, who reportedly plan to release him once his suspension is concluded. For a guy who claims he wants his name cleared, Incognito doesn’t seem eager to explain himself.
