“Kind” Incognito Impressed Bucs RookieAugust 29th, 2014
It’s great to know Richie Incognito has multiple personalities. That can come in handy on a job interview.
Last night, Bucs general manager Jason Licht told Bucs fans how Incognito “impressed” him this week during their meeting. And earlier, a Bucs rookie shared his tender offseason moments with Incognito.
Roy Cummings, of The Tampa Tribune, took notes when tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins gave a scouting report.
“He’s one of the funniest, outgoing, kind guys I’ve ever known,’’ Seferian-Jenkins said. “I don’t know what happened in Miami but the time I worked with him was great. So I’d have no issues (if the Bucs signed him).
“I mean, I had a great time with him. He’s the hardest worker I’ve ever seen. I enjoyed getting in there and working out with him every day and spending the whole day with him. The Richie I know, the Richie I worked out with, he’s a good guy.’’
It turns out Seferian-Jenkins and Incognito spent months in Arizona pumping iron at the same facility.
Now isn’t that sweet. Joe’s greatest concern (among several) with Incognito is his ability to perform coming off his couch and a 9 1/2-month layoff, all while under massive scrutiny from teammates and national media. That’s not a great combination of obstacles for a veteran player with a history of, um, inappropriate behavior.
