*Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito has filed a non-injury grievance against the club, challenging his status as “indefinitely suspended” for conduct detrimental, according to ESPN sources.
Under Article 43 of the collective bargaining agreement, the maximum a player can be suspended by a team for conduct detrimental is four weeks plus an additional game check. In this case, that would amount to $1,276,470.59. The Dolphins have never defined the length of the suspension, which was announced in the late evening on Nov. 3.
Under the labor agreement, all non-injury grievances must be heard by a neutral arbitrator. Incognito has requested an expedited hearing.
Incognito was suspended indefinitely after former teammate Jonathan Martin left the team and claimed he was harassed and bullied by Incognito. The NFL also is conducting a full investigation.
