NFL clears accused locker room bully to sign, play

The NFL cleared former Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito for a return to full activity and participate in regular season games, multiple media outlets reported Monday.

The Dolphins had placed Incognito on paid suspension as a result of his part in the bullying scandal involving Jonathan Martin. NFL officials needed to review the investigation before deciding whether to allow Incognito to sign with a team.

Incognito is now free to sign with a team and can play immediately.

Incognito was scheduled to visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, and several other teams appear to be interested.
