With so much discussion in and around the league this week about the Miami Dolphins’ situation, with Incognito having been suspended by the team after reportedly sending profane and racially insensitive voice and text messages to teammate Jonathan Martin, Haslett was asked Wednesday about Incognito.
“I coached Richie in St. Louis,” Haslett said. “Richie is a competitor. He’s tough. He plays with a nasty streak. I think he’s a good guy, for the most part. But he loves football and he plays hard and practices hard. That’s really the only thing I was concerned with.”
Haslett served as the Rams’ interim head coach in 2008, when Incognito played for the team. Incognito also was with the Rams in 2006 and 2007 when Haslett was the team’s defensive coordinator.
Haslett said he could not speak knowledgeably about what happened in the Dolphins’ locker room.
“I really don’t know the whole story,” Haslett said. “I don’t know all the details. So I don’t really want to comment on something that I really don’t understand the whole thing yet. It’s an unfortunate thing. That’s all I can say. I really don’t know all the details.”
