Incognito, Dolphins reach agreement to continue his suspension, with pay

In the latest twist in the saga of Miami Dolphins offensive guard Richie Incognito, he has agreed to extend his suspension while the investigation into a bullying scandal continues, according to NFL Network.

Incognito isn't allowed to be suspended any longer than this Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

The agreement, which was signed off on by the league and players' union, complies with the NFL collective bargaining agreement.

Incognito was suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team after allegedly bullying teammate Jonathan Martin, including leaving a racially-charged voice mail on Martin's phone.

Incognito has lost $235,294 in salary each week.

He agreed to postpone his grievance hearing until an independent investigation is over looking into the Dolphins' workplace.
