Incognito To Fox' Glazer: Vulgarities Simply "How We Communicate"
Suspended Dolphins G Richie Incognito today sat for a one-on-one recorded interview with Jay Glazer on "Fox NFL Sunday," with Glazer clarifying before the segment that he has "been friendly with Richie Incognito for about five years." Incognito admitted to leaving teammate Jonathan Martin a voicemail consisting of vulgar and racist terms, but said, "The way Jonathan and the rest of the offensive line and how our teammates, how we communicate, it's vulgar. It's not right. When the words are put in the context I understand why a lot of eyebrows get raised but people don't know how Jon and I communicate to one another."
Incognito later said he exchanged text messages with Martin after Martin left the team, and agreed to disclose those messages to Glazer. The interview closed with Glazer asking what Incognito would say to Martin if he were sitting next to him. Incognito responded in part, "I think I'd give him a big hug right now because we've been through so much and I’d be like, dude what’s going on? Why didn't you come to me?" ("Fox NFL Sunday," Fox, 11/10).
