Richie Incognito Retires?
Sunday April 15, 2018
Incognito Drama: Richie Incognito contiues to cause drama with his tweets. Here's a quick recap. First he signed a new contract taking a pay cut but received a signing bonus. Then he fired his agent presumably unhappy with his pay cut. Then he suddenly retired citing health reasons. Then he tweeted that he would see the Bills at the start of organized team activities tomorrow. Finally, he tweeted that he wants the Bills to release him and contact the agent he supposedly fired. Get all that? Richie wants his cake and eat it to. He wants the Bills to cut him so he can keep his signing bonus and then try to find a better deal elsewhere. Why would he take the paycut then? He could have forced the Bills hand by not agreeing to the paycut and then he would have probably got his release. Strange times for Richie. Stay tuned.
