After speculation this morning that embattled former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito was in Buffalo getting a physical, the NFL Network's Jeff Darlington is reporting that the controversial player is now officially a member of the Bills.
Done deal. Richie Incognito has officially signed with the Bills, source says.— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) February 7, 2015
Incognito has been the in the NFL since 2006, and spent 2010-2013 playing for the Dolphins. Generally regarded as a very talented guard, Incognito missed the entire 2014 season after fellow lineman Jonathan Martin told people in the organization that Incognito had been bullying him, causing Martin to leave the team due to "emotional distress" just two months in to the 2013 season. The Dolphins then suspended Incognito for eight games.
With former San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman bringing his run-heavy attack to Buffalo, Incognito makes a lot of sense as the Bills look to pound the ball with Fred Jackson and get C.J. Spiller out in space. It will be interesting to see if Incognito, who aside from his dealings with Martin, has a history of dropping racial slurs whenever he feels like it, will be accepted by his new teammates.
