Embattled former Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito can picture himself in silver and black.
A free agent after being released following the bullying scandal involving former Stanford tackle Jonathan Martin, Incognito told the NFL Network’s Michael Silver, “I’m 100 percent into that. I think that would fit my personality best.’’
Incognito played with Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson with the St. Louis Rams and line coach Tony Sparano when Sparano was head coach of the Dolphins.
Whether general manager Reggie McKenzie and coach Dennis Allen would have a reciprocal interest remains to be seen. The Raiders have already added guard/center Kevin Boothe, as well as tackles Doanld Penn and Austin Howard.
Incumbent starters up front include left guard Khalif Barnes and right guard Mike Brisiel, as well as Lucas Nix, who also started last season.
McKenzie and Allen are careful about who they bring into the locker room in terms of team chemistry. While acknowledging the difficulty of putting together a team with a lot of new faces, McKenzie said Wednesday, “If you have the right type of guys, that transition won’t be as difficult as you would think.’’
Defensive lineman Antonio Smith, signed by the Raiders last week, has had two on-field issues with Incognito, swinging a helmet at him during a preaseason game and kicking him during a regular-season game.
