The Miami Dolphins are denying an ESPN report that Dennis Hickey’s contract is for only two years. That doesn’t mean he will necessarily be around for more than two years but knowing the Dolphins current MO he will be. Hopefully he will prove he deserves to be.
Moving on to Richie Incognito, the Miami Dolphins have lifted his suspension. The Dolphins say that Incognito’s suspension lift is something that the team and Richie had agreed upon prior and that it is not an indication of recent events surrounding the text messages that were released publicly last night. Incognito is slated to be a free agent in March.
From one lineman to another, impending free agent Bryant McKinnie is saying that he would like to remain with the Dolphins.
“Hopefully I return back with the Dolphins,” McKinnie said, via the team’s website. “You know you have four out of the five [offensive lineman] whose contracts are up. I’ve been in the healing process and everything and I’m feeling better, working out and stuff like that. We have a new general manager so that’s good, and we’ll just see how things go. I plan on playing for a couple more years and it would be great to just finish my career there where I already have a home.”
There has been no indication from the Dolphins if that feeling is mutual. New GM Dennis Hickey is likely in sprint mode reviewing tape from the season. He will also rely heavily on the opinion of HC Joe Philbin.
