Dolphins' Pouncey has no regrets, need for testing

The SportsXchange

Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey has not complied with the NFL's mandate that he undergo psychological testing before he can resume playing and says he does not care to do so.

"I don't think I need that," Pouncey said Tuesday after the Dolphins finished their first session of organized team activities.

Pouncey was one of three Miami players involved in the bullying case with former Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin last year. The All-Pro center, Richie Incognito and John Jerry could receive suspensions from the league before the start of the 2014 season.

Pouncey said he did not regret what happened in the locker room last fall.

"No, not at all," Pouncey said. "We've moved on from that. I'm not worried about anything in 2013, honestly, it's all about 2014 for me."

Martin ended up leaving the team because he said he could not deal with the harassment and is now with the San Francisco 49ers. Jerry signed with the New York Giants during the offseason and Incognito remains an unrestricted free agent.

Asked when he expects a possible suspension to be handed down by the league, Pouncey said, "I don't have any thought on it. That's not up to me right now. I'm just waiting to hear."

Pouncey also raised eyebrowns during the NFL Draft earlier this month when he tweeted about looking forward to receiving gifts from first-round pick Ja'Wuan James.

"Obviously, it was a joke, but I'm not here to be a distraction," Pouncey said. "It's all about football right now. We've moved on from that."

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said the team will keep in touch with the league regarding the possible Pouncey suspension.

"The one thing that's without question about Mike Pouncey which is important is he wants to be a great football player," Philbin said. "He wants to make a valuable contribution to the Miami Dolphins, and he's not unlike any other player that we have in terms of there's an educational process every player goes through."
