A Former Dolphins Player Joked About Shooting GM Jeff Ireland, According to the Ted Wells Report

richie incognitoFrom the Ted Wells report, here’s an exchange between Richie Incognito and an unnamed Miami Dolphins lineman. It took place on Dec. 13, 2012. The investigation characterized it this way: “We accept that these messages are nothing more than thoughtless banter, with no underlying malicious intent. But such jokes are nonetheless reprehensible and arguably reflect deep-seated racial hostility.”

Specifically, on December 13, 2012, Incognito and a former Dolphins offensive lineman,
who is white, communicated about purchasing guns, apparently for recreational purposes.
(We identify this former Dolphin as Player B.) The discussion veered into jokes about
shooting black people:

Player B: Especially if u plan living in Arizona in the future, that’s
exactly what you want

Incognito: Yea. For picking off zombies

Player B: Lol isn’t that why we own any weapons!?

Incognito: That and black people

Player B: Mmm def all black ppl

Four days later, Incognito and Player B discussed rifle scopes in text messages.

Player B: Yes. That’s a solid optic made specifically for a .308 battle rifle

Incognito: Perfect for shooting black people

Player B: Lol exactly

Player B: Or Jeff Ireland
