The Miami Dolphin implicated in the Wells report points people to a top LGBT college resource.

Richie Incognito finally returned to Twitter Friday afternoon, several hours after the damning Wells report that concluded Incognito and several other Miami Dolphins players engaged in the systematic racial and homophobic bullying of Jonathan Martin and at least one other player and one Dolphins staff member.

He took to Twitter to issue a shot across the bow:

He then tweeted positive messages, directing people to the LGBT college resource Campus Pride:

Shane Windmeyer, the founder of Campus Pride, has a history of reaching out to people with checkered pasts, including Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy. Windmeyer told Outsports:

"Campus Pride is obviously distraught any time there is bullying. The Wells report is obviously very disturbing. Our organization feels strongly about siting down with people in hopes of changing behavior. We're happy that Richie Incognito shared our resources, and there is no reason we wouldn't sit down with him and talk about his commitment to LGBT people and what has occurred with his teammate Jonathan Martin."

Campus Pride also sent this tweet:

Campus Pride has worked on several sport projects, including the recent LGBT College Sports Summit. It is a member of the LGBT Sports Coalition, aimed at ending homophobia in sports by 2016.
