Mike Pouncey Cleared In Bullying Scandal


The Miami Dolphins received at least a little bit of good news last night, Mike Pouncey will not face any league discipline for his involvement or lack thereof in the bullying scandal that cost John Jerry, Richie Incognito, and Jonathan Martin positions with the team. There had been ongoing speculation that the Dolphins Pro-Bowl center might face some sort of league discipline including a possible suspension.

Pouncey is still going to miss the first three to four weeks of the season after hip surgery to repair a torn labrum but he will not face additional penalties, this according to the Miami Herald.

The Herald reported that they held an e-mail exchange with Greg Aiello of the NFL’s spokesperson. Aiello neither confirmed or denied any issues only stating that there was no change to Pouncey’s status and that he “did not anticipate having to address this issue again”.

The Dolphins could use a little good news especially with the questions that remained surrounding last years bully-gate episode. The last lingering issue was Pouncey and that appears to be cleared up at this time. If it does indeed turn out to be the final nail in this subject it will finally end a rather dark and bleak chapter in Miami Dolphins history.
