Bills OG Richie Incognito 'strongly considering' retirement

Bills OG Richie Incognito 'strongly considering' retirement

"I just want to be in the Hall of Fame". "Went to the doctor - my liver and kidneys are shutting down".

In an interview with the Buffalo News, Incognito said he would be retiring from football due to medical concerns.

The news of Incognito's departure began to take shape when he posted via Twitter on Tuesday morning, "I'm done", and tagged the NFL Players Association.

Incognito, 34, played for the Bills the past three seasons, earning a grade of 80.5 from Pro Football Focus a year ago, good for 12th among guards.

According to ProfootballTalk.com, Incognito lost $1.625 million when he restructured the previous year of his current deal, but he did receive a $1 million bonus he'd owe Buffalo should he retire.

Richie Incognito is abruptly calling it quits on an 11-season National Football League career, three years after the Buffalo Bills gave the offensive guard a second chance at playing following his role in the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal.

On March 15, Incognito tweeted: "BUFFALO!"

Speculation regarding Incognito's future first began last week after he fired his agent on Twitter.

"It pisses me the f off". The stress is killing me. Incognito has started at left guard for the Bills for the past three seasons.

Apparently Richie Incognito isn't as excited about his restructured contract as he was a month ago. Louis Rams in 2005, he was waived by the team in 2009, claimed by the Miami Dolphins, and suspended indefinitely in 2013 for his role in a bullying scandal involving teammate Jonathan Martin. An NFL investigation determined Incognito and two other Dolphins offensive linemen persistently harassed Martin.

Incognito would be the third starter from last year's offensive line to depart Buffalo this offseason.
