Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito took bullying to another level in the NFL, but with recent news of the San Francisco 49ers trading for the tackle, could Pete Carroll respond by signing Richie Incognito?

Ever since Jim Harbaugh opted to go for a two-point conversion in Stanford’s eventual 55-21 win over Carroll’s USC team in 2009 there has been bad blood.

During the postgame handshake Carroll asked “What’s your deal? You all right?” Harbaugh responded “Yeah, I’m good. What’s your deal?”

Ever since then the two college coaches migrated to the NFL’s NFC West and have become two of the best teams in the league.

Required to face each other twice a season, there are plenty of times for questionable moments.

Sure, the rivalry is much more media hype than a legit beef between the two, but wouldn’t it just be perfect to respond to Martin’s signing by bringing in Richie Incognito?

According to TheGuardian.com “There is zero possibility that the Dolphins will bring back Incognito, who checked himself into a mental health facility, seeking help after trashing his own $300,000 Ferrari with a baseball bat.”

The Seahawks are set to lose Breno Giacomini who was perhaps Seattle’s most consistent offensive lineman in 2013.

While Incognito wouldn’t be a replacement, he wouldn’t be much a risk either.
