Raiders Activate G Richie Incognito, Release G Jonathan Cooper


The Oakland Raiders announced Tuesday that they’ve activated G Richie Incognito from the suspended list and released G Jonathan Cooper

Incognito was suspended for the first two games of the 2019 season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. 

Incognito pled guilty back in April to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct, stemming from an August incident at a funeral home after his father’s death. He was also involved in another incident.

Incognito, 35, is a former third-round pick of the Rams back in 2005. He played three years for the Rams and one year for the Bills before signing on with the Dolphins in 2010.

After four years in Miami, Incognito was released and out of football for a year before securing another shot with the Bills in 2015.

Incognito was in the final year of his three-year, $15.75 million contract that included $5.45 million guaranteed and was set to make a base salary of $6.32 million for the 2018 season when he agreed to the restructured deal.

The Bills released him from the retired list in 2018 and he later signed a one-year contract with the Raiders this past May.

In 2017, Incognito appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 12 guard out of 77 qualifying players.
