Sources reported that the Bills are almost ready to sign Richie Incognito – the former Dolphins guard who was in the middle of a bullying controversy. NFL fans and pay per head services would now like to see how the free agent will do in Buffalo.
The last time that Incognito played for the Dolphins was in 2013, and sources reported that the player was set to go to Buffalo to get a medical.
The Bills must make an upgrade of the guard position, where Kraig Urbik and Erik Pears – starters – were having problems last season. In March, Pears will turn into a free agent, as Urbik will be playing through 2016 under a contract.
Last offseason, Chris Williams, guard who took on a deal that was worth $13.5 million – running through four years – and who was not able to feature in 13 meetings due to an injury suffered on his lower back, said that he’s looking forward to being well enough to hit the field when next season gets underway.
A 31-year-old Incognito was in the middle of a bullying scandal that involved Jonathan Martin, ex-teammate with Miami. An investigation made by the NFL revealed that Incognito, as well as Mike Pouncey and John Jerry – two other offensive linemen for the Dolphins – were harassing Martin, who was traded to San Francisco.
NFL fans remember very well when in 2013, Incognito made the headlines when he was banned from playing in the Dolphins’ last eight meetings after the widely reported bullying controversy.
Last summer, Incognito was cleared by the league to continue all activities related to football. In August, the player visited the Bucs and Broncos, but he stayed out of the game for the season of 2014.
Last month, when Rex Ryan spoke in a news conference, the new coach for the Bills said that he was looking to “build a bully” that other teams wouldn’t want to take on. These words definitely left many fans thinking.
This offseason, Buffalo became the first team in the NFL to host the controversial player, and pay per head services are very eager to see how he will do there. Hopefully this time around there will be no more problems, as his fans are well aware of his great skills on the field, and believe that he’ can be a very good addition to the Bills.
