Richie Incognito drawing interest

According to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, Richie Incognito, who was voted by his peers as the NFL's dirtiest player last season, will visit the Miami Dolphins.

Fined nearly six figures for various on-field incidents so far in his brief NFL career, Incognito is a former third-round draft pick of the St. Louis Rams.

The Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis Colts could also be interested in the controversial offensive guard.

Incognito almost joined the Dolphins in December, but Miami lost out on their waiver claim to the Buffalo Bills, who were lower in the standings.

When will Sanders play?

The veteran safety Bob Sanders remains on the physically unable to perform list after undergoing surgery on his right knee, according to the page/IND">Colts can t say">Indianapolis Star.

Neither coach Jim Caldwell nor president Bill Polian was prepared Wednesday to assert Sanders will be back in time for the opener.

The team recently discussed Sanders' situation with its doctors and James Andrews, the noted orthopedic surgeon who performed Sanders' surgeries. Along with a procedure in the offseason, Sanders had surgery during the 2008 season that forced him to miss 10 games.

Polian said the immediate hurdle for Sanders is strengthening the quadriceps muscle in his right leg.  He stated, "He's in great physical condition. He's not in football condition."

Colts add to coaching staff

According to the Indianapolis Star, the Colts have added two interns to coach Jim Caldwell's staff.

Ron Johnson will work with the receivers while Frank Winters is working with the offensive line.

Johnson, 28, spent the 2002-03 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens and played in the Arena Football League the past two seasons. He will assist Clyde Christensen, the team's receivers coach/assistant head coach, who assumed coordinator responsibilities after Tom Moore's retirement.

Winters, 48, was an offensive lineman in the NFL for 16 seasons, the final 11 (1992-2002) with Green Bay. He will work under Pete Metzelaars, who has filled Howard Mudd's void.

Caldwell added it was premature to speculate that Moore and Mudd would return as consultants.

Moore and Mudd would not be eligible to return for a minimum of six months, according to the NFL Coaches Association's executive director, which would mean November at the earliest.
