Well, the Colts and Bengals are showing interest, too.

Richie Incognito agrees to 1-year deal with Dolphins
Richie Incognito is a Miami Dolphin.

The Dolphins and the player's representatives at this hour are finalizing a deal that was submitted last night. Jeff Darlington of The Miami Herald reports the deal is worth slightly over $1 million. When the final language is written, the deal likely will include $300,000 in incentives to cover the possibility Incognito starts for Miami.

That is bargain money. Good starting guards in the NFL average anywhere from $3-$5 million depending on experience and whether they have hit free agency or not.

Incognito has played three positions along the offensive line in his career -- RG, LG and C. But the Dolphins want him join the competition at both guard spots. Notice I said both guard spots. Yes, Justin Smiley has been something of a lock at left guard since joining the team in 2008, but he'll have to win his job during training camp -- regardless of whether he's the odds on favorite to do so or not.

I think this is a nice deal for Miami. Incognito is just 26 years old and he certainly fits the criteria of what the trifecta likes in regards to size and power. He adds depth to the OG position and could very well end up starting at RG if Thomas does not pick his game up.

He get's a chance to prove that he can be an effective player, and play under control. If he blows it, he gone after the 2010 season.

Okay no "Diva Receivas" but we'll take a guy who will get more notoriety for calling back big plays than anything positive he does in the trenches. Voted the dirtiest player in the NFL. He has a reputation of being tough to coach as well. Other than being a budget player, this signing is more about depth IMO, than anything else. Two years in a row now Miami has suffered serious injuries to the inside unit along the OL. So I guess that makes it a good signing.

A short contract is good for both Miami and Incognito. He should be on his best behavior as he looks for a big contract next year, and we'll have a good starting RG at a very affordable $1.3 million contract. Not only that, but he provides depth at LG and C as well.

Are you complaining? Because any "diva receivers" want more than a one year, 1.3 million dollar deal and they want a starting job and the ball every freakin' play....can't compare the two.

The Miami Dolphins have signed guard Richie Incognito. Incognito is a veteran of six NFL seasons, having spent time with the St. Louis Rams and Buffalo Bills.

The 6-3, 324-pound Incognito has started all 47 games that he has appeared in his career, including nine with the Rams and three with the Bills in 2009. Incognito was awarded to the Buffalo off waivers from St. Louis on December 16, 2009 after spending his first five seasons with the Rams. He originally was selected by St. Louis in the third round (81st overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft. In 2006, Incognito blocked for a Rams offense that had a 4,000-yard passer, 1,500-yard rusher and two 1,000-yard receivers, one of only four offenses in NFL history to accomplish that feat.

Incognito played collegiately at the University of Nebraska where he was a first-team All-Big 12 selection by the Associated Press. The guard was also named to the conference’s second-team by the league’s coaches as a sophomore. Incognito also earned a spot on the Outland Trophy and Lombardi Award Watch Lists and was the first Husker freshman offensive lineman to start in the season opener and was just the third rookie lineman to earn any start in his first year of competition. Born July 5, 1983, Incognito was born in Englewood, NJ and attended Mountain Ridge High in Glendale, AZ, where he earned All-America honors as a senior. He was also named to Prep Star’s 120-man Dream Team.

I think this a good move. Even though I thought Smiley, Thomas, Grove, Berger, and Garner all had decent years; competition keeps everyone sharp and pushes everyone to achieve more.

Yes, receiver needs to be addressed and hopefully in a trade. However, that doesn't mean that you don't keep building the rest of your team.

Its a good deal for the Phins. He will add some depth to the o-line and push Thomas and Smiley for their jobs and comes at a bargain price. And at 26 he still has a few years left in him.
