Richie Incognito has a lot to get off his chest. And he has a platform to do it: A Twitter account with more 60,000 followers.

He has used that forum liberally in the past few days, making some news about the still-pending report on the team’s workplace conduct scandal – of which Incognito is a central figure.

Incognito on Thursday implored Ted Wells’ law firm to release its findings, writing: “Paul, Weiss, Rifkind – Really taking your time on this one. Not like my career and life have been in the balance for 3 months.”

Earlier in the day, he weighed in on Jonathan Martin, who has accused his teammates of mental and physical abuse, before quickly deleting the remarks. However, they were captured by some of his followers before falling down the rabbit hole.

Incognito first wrote: “[Martin’s] attorney is david cornwell #amateur”

Then Incognito added: “Just to be clear. Jon martin’s agent is Kenny Zuckerman at priority sports. Let’s just saw that he isn’t very ‘trustworthy.’ He screwed Jmart.”

He did not provide any further details.

Incognito has previously raised questions about why the report has taken so long to be completed. Wells began work on the inquiry in early November, interviewing dozens of players, coaches and front office members.

The New York-based attorney announced Wednesday that his findings will be made public either late next week or early the week after.

Incognito said Wednesday that he met with Dolphins coach Joe Philbin and executive vice president Dawn Aponte at team headquarters the day after general manager Jeff Ireland was let go to discuss the timing of Wells' report.

    Greg Cote: Michael Sam is a distraction to embrace, not avoid

    It’s no surprise that Tony Dungy’s comments this week about Michael Sam — comments that on the surface seemed more benign than inflammatory — have created such a national tempest. Sports are a Petri dish for argument and debate under any circumstances, and when you add the politics of religion and gay issues to the mix, the chances of a quietly civil discussion have pretty much left the building.
