Bills guard Richie Incognito texts AP he's 'done'

Bills guard Richie Incognito texts AP he's 'done'

Buffalo Bills left guard Richie Incognito says he is retiring after 12 seasons in the National Football League because of medical issues.

Sports Illustrated reported earlier Tuesday that Incognito was "strongly considering retiring", but might return for a final season in 2018 "at the right price".

Incognito's recent pay cut reduced his base salary from $6.3 million to $3.7 million, but he received a $1 million bonus as part of the restructure.

Clearly, losing Incognito and the other linemen is going to impact McCoy, who's been one of the NFL's best running backs the past few years in Buffalo running behind them. It's been a long career.

Speculation regarding Incognito's future first began last week after he fired his agent on Twitter. "That's it." Incognito added he is experiencing liver and kidney problems and is being affected by stress.

It was in Miami that Richie found some real trouble, as he was accused of bullying black teammate Jonathan Martin. He remains in talks with the Bills about his contract, however, and has given himself until Sunday to change his mind, according to King.

The Buffalo News quoted Incognito as saying, "I'm done".

Incognito spoke to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News and his comments suggest that he's leaning pretty far in the direction of retiring. Plus, it appears that Incognito's body is kind of falling apart after 12 seasons in the NFL. For now, Richie Incognito's career is over. "And that's it", Incognito said.

Incognito earned three of his four Pro Bowl selections in Buffalo, and was considered among the Bills team leaders.

Incognito's potential retirement would mark the third high-profile departure from the Bills' offensive line this offseason.

The Bills traded left tackle Cordy Glenn to the Cincinnati Bengals, and center Eric Wood retired.
