Impending free agent G Richie Incognito said that his No. 1 goal is to get a deal done with the Bills and return to Buffalo next season.
“I’m anxious. I’m anxious to see what happens,” Incognito said, via BuffaloBills.com. “My goal is to come back and play in Buffalo. I love it there. I love my teammates and I love playing for coach Rex and Greg Roman. I really think that my personality and my hard work approach and physical nature really resembles the spirit of Buffalo. A blue collar town and a bunch of hard working people up there, and they just want to win. That’s my number one goal is just to win and restore the glory of Buffalo. I hope it all works out and I hope I’m back there real soon.”
All indications from the team have been that they too would like to get an agreement in place with Incognito and maintain some continuity on their offensive line.
Incognito, 32, wound up being a much better signing than many anticipated for the Bills when they signed him to a one-year, $1.45 million last year. He’ll be an unrestricted free agent in the coming months.
In 2015, Incognito appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 2 guard out of 82 qualifying players.
