Would you like to see the New York Giants pursue Richie Incognito in free agency. Carl Banks reached out to Big Blue View followers on Twitter with that question on Tuesday. So, I toss the question out to you.
Vote in the poll below, and feel free to offer your thoughts directly to @CarlBanksG111 on Twitter.
Here are some of the responses Banks has already gotten on Twitter:
@CarlBanksGIII @Giants @bigblueview @giantsbuzztap @BigBlueInteract tough one need a lineman but would he be toxic in the lockeroom?— Sean Hughes (@pshnazz) February 4, 2014
@CarlBanksGIII @Giants @bigblueview @giantsbuzztap @BigBlueInteract Absolutly not guy is a horrible locker room figure, not a team player— John DeGori (@Johnny_D17) February 4, 2014
@CarlBanksGIII @Giants @bigblueview @giantsbuzztap @BigBlueInteract no way no how.. Giants don't do distractions.. We'll find someone else— Jared Duncan (@JaredDuncan24) February 4, 2014
@CarlBanksGIII @Giants @bigblueview @giantsbuzztap @BigBlueInteract I'm late but HELL no. Can't risk signing him especially after a down yr— Felix Davila III (@FD_3rd) February 4, 2014
@CarlBanksGIII @Giants @bigblueview @giantsbuzztap @BigBlueInteract Story was overblown, but Incognito has always been trouble. I'd pass.— Michael Duda (@MikeDudaNY) February 4, 2014
Incognito, of course, is the Miami Dolphins' offensive guard who is at the center of bullying allegations from Dolphins' teammate Jonathan Martin.
Those allegations could be overblown when you read the more than 1,000 text messages between Incognito and Martin that were uncovered by The Big Lead. In reading the messages, Pro Football Talk goes so far as to say they "reflect a genuine friendship between Incognito and Martin."
Dolphins' owner Stephen Ross appears to have no interest in having Incognito return to the team.
So, yes or no Giants' fans. Would you be OK with the Giants, who need offensive linemen, pursuing Incognito? He does have a troubled history, which you can read about on his Wikipedia page if you aren't familiar with it. The 30-year-old is also, however, a good player. He made the Pro Bowl in 2012, and positive grades from Pro Football Focus every year since PFF came into existence in 2008.
