“Nothing Is Imminent”August 26th, 2014
It seems the sitdown between sleazy Richie Incognito and Bucs coach Lovie Smith went down yesterday, and while both sides are putting on a happy face, nothing is about to go down.
Those are the words coming from former Dolphins beat writer and current NFL.com insider and Seminole High grad Jeff Darlington. The NFL Network star used his contacts, both old and new, to get the latest on Incognito and the Bucs.
In short, Bucs fans, if you really, really, really want this guy, chill. It may not happen right away, Darlington twitters.
Meeting between Incognito and Bucs has concluded. Both sides say it went great. And it could still be a match, but nothing is imminent.

Incognito and Bucs have reasons independent of one another to wait a few days before doing a deal. So no news doesn’t mean it won’t happen. — Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) August 26, 2014
Darlington also Twittered that the Bucs are not the only team sniffing Incognito’s tail. Apparently, three other teams are interested but all three were spooked about talking to Incognito because, until yesterday, Incognito had not been cleared to play by NFL
warden commissioner Roger Goodell.
While Darlington notes the Bucs are the first to interview Incognito, it is not a lock he signs with the Bucs.
