Dolphins vs. Cardinals 2012: Nick Eason calls Richie Incognito "dirty"

Arizona Cardinals defensive end Nick Eason on Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito: non-athletic, can't block, dirty.

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Arizona Cardinals defensive end Nick Eason hasn't forgotten a 2010 game when offensive lineman Richie Incognito spit on him. With Incognito's Miami Dolphins set to meet the 3-0 Cardinals on Sunday, Eason is now adding to the fire.

Eason talked about how dirty a player Incognito is in a radio interview this week (courtesy of Pro Football Talk), the second such player to do so in two weeks after Houston Texans Antonio Smith accused Incognito of trying to injure his ankle. Smith was fined for kicking Incognito in retaliation. Apparently, Eason knows where Smith is coming from:

"He basically tried to break Antonio's leg. Antonio got fined because he had to kick the guy off of him and [the NFL] did nothing to him. Usually players who do that are the non-athletic guys who really can't block people so they play dirty."

Eason also said he's excited to face Incognito but plans to keep his emotions in check. The Dolphins and Cardinals meet Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET in Arizona. The game will be televised by CBS.
