If you are looking forward to Richie Incognito donning a Denver Broncos uniform as its guard, hold your horses.

The Broncos are not yet planning on striking a deal with the player after having him in for a workout on Monday, although that does not mean they will not do it later on, ESPN said.

The Bleacher Report echoed the report, citing a tweet by Jeff Darlington of the NFL Network: "Broncos aren't going to sign Incognito this week — but also not closing door on future, team source says. Team doesn't have immediate need."

The update came just hours after he announced on Twitter last Tuesday that Incognito's meetings with the team have been "going great so far."

The former Stanford lineman, who brings along quite the reputation as a dirty player, had gone on a workout and visit with the Broncos this week just so he can be evaluated, even as the coaching staff is familiar with him, said Yard Barker, per Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

The Bleacher Report said Incognito would be a good addition to the Broncos mix, with the leadership style stirring it nowadays and the main role to be played by the franchise's face, Peyton Manning.

Meanwhile, Pro Football Talk said it is a desperate move — tapping a player that no other team would normally take in, delayed only because the next matches are against the St. Louis Rams and the Miami Dolphins, his past teams. He would just inspire the others, it explained.

Incognito's dilemma

The guard has not played in the NFL since November 2013, when the Dolphins suspended him and two other teammates over harassing Jonathan Martin, prompting the latter to leave in October, ESPN said. According to Darlington, he missed 18 NFL weeks.

The accusation was based on voice mail and text messages riddled with profanity and racial slurs like "Hey, wassup, you half n----- piece of s---. I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. [I want to] s--- in your f---ing mouth. [I'm going to] slap your f---ing mouth. [I'm going to] slap your real mother across the face [laughter]. F--- you, you're still a rookie. I'll kill you," ESPN report said.

While out of the action, Darlington noted in another tweet that Incognito has been working out in Arizona to stay in tip-top shape, while shying away from the media attention. 

Before the career halt, ESPN said the 31-year-old has played 102 games — all in the starting lineup — in eight seasons. He has been with the Buffalo Bills, and Rams as a third-round draftee in 2005.

Meanwhile, Yard Barker reported that the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are also considering him on their rosters.
