Richie Incognito apparently doesn't know when to quit. And while his heart may (or may not?) be in the right place, it looks like he's not ready to quit on publicly apologizing to everyone he seemingly angered or offended or hurt. On Twitter.
The past few weeks have seen Incognito apologizing to Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, NFL independent investigator Ted Wells, and the NFL, all in a very transparent hope to get another job in the league again.
Incognito had apologized to Martin on Twitter as well.
But during the wee hours of Monday morning, Incognito tweeted directly at Jonathan Martin, asking for forgiveness and looking for reconciliation with the man Wells concluded he bullied.
The tweets appeared at 2:27 Monday morning. In one of them, Incognito asks Martin to call him. In the other, he tells him that they need to move on before offering a smiley-face emoticon.
@j_martin71 No hard feelings. Let's just move on :)

Just before tweeting, Incognito started following Martin again:

It's tough the gauge the sincerity of Incognito's tweets to Martin, what with him also sending out an apology tweet to Ferrari. Just last month Incognito made news when he smashed his own black Ferrari with a baseball bat for no apparent reason.

For his part, Martin never responded to Incognito's tweet. Instead, he tweeted about getting back to work (Martin was traded to the San Francisco 49ers last week).
Back to work... #Rise&Grind

It's possible Martin may have blocked Incognito on Twitter, but we're not entirely sure. It would be the first time either one of them blocked anything successfully in a long time.
