Jeff Darlington reports that free agent G Richie Incognito left Oakland after his visit with the Raiders and while there’s “strong mutual interest” in a deal, the two parties will have to wait for the NFL to determine whether to discipline Incognito for his arrest last August.
For the time being, Darlington says that Incognito will return to Arizona and continue working out.
Tom Pelissero reports that free agent G Richie Incognito remains in Oakland after his workout for the Raiders on Monday.
Pelissero’s understanding is there’s “mutual interest” in a deal with the, but the main holdup appears to be figuring out what discipline, if any, he’s facing from the NFL.
Incognito pled guilty last month to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct, stemming from an August incident at a funeral home after his father’s death.
Incognito has reportedly been staying in shape and would like to return to the field. He had previously announced his retirement and fired his agent in 2018 as a part of a string of off-field incidents that also included an arrest for multiple counts of disorderly conduct.
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.
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.
