Richie Incognito returns to Twitter, apologizes to Jonathan Martin

Richie Incognito took a short break from Twitter over the weekend.

During that time the Dolphins offensive lineman seems to have found a new attitude toward the bullying controversy that has engulfed him since fall and culminated in an NFL-ordered report released last week that pointed to a "pattern of harassment" by Incognito and two teammates.

On Monday Incognito tweeted out a general apology for his behavior following the release of the report. Then early Tuesday morning he sent another one specifically for Jonathan Martin, the Dolphins lineman who is considered to have been a primary bullying target by Incognito and cohorts John Jerry and Mike Pouncey.

He later also tweeted apologies to independent investigator Ted Wells and Dolphins owner Stephen Ross.

Last Wednesday, two days before the Wells report came out, Incognito went on the offensive with several tweets, some addressing Martin by name.

On Friday, the day the report was released, Incognito apparently decided to show that he, in fact, had become a victim of bullying.

He then retweeted a flurry of hateful messages sent his way, followed by a few more that addressed the report.

He wrapped all up by seemingly announcing his departure from the social media site.

Incognito, an eight-year veteran and one-time Pro Bowler, was suspended by the Dolphins for most of the season. He will become an unrestricted free agent next month.
