Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE
Miami Dolphins 2008 first overall draft pick, Jake Long, is currently a free agent, trying to decide between returning to the only team he has known, or move on to the St. Louis Rams. As Long tries to decide, his offensive line mate, guard Richie Incognito, is leading the charge to try to keep the tackle in a Dolphins jersey.
Miami Dolphins Pro Bowl guard Richie Incognito is a fun follow on Twitter. You never quite know what you are going to get out of @68Incognito, and it's always entertaining. But, Incognito also uses his Twitter account to make a statement. Like this week, when that statement was pretty simple: #BringJakeHome.

Okay, it may have gotten a little weird there at the end - but that's the gloriousness of Richie Incognito.
And, Incognito is correct, it did take over twitterverse. Just some examples:

Black smoke is rising from the Long residence. Either they have not yet made a decision or someone needs to call 911. #BringJakeHome— Brian Cole (@Finhead83) March 17, 2013
The #BringJakeHome movement has reached the point that media outlets have started picking up on it:
I reckon a Jake Long return might not be too far away. #bringjakehome— Simon Clancy (@SiClancy) March 16, 2013
