Richie Incognito says he wants to re-sign with Buffalo Bills

New, comments

Bills guard Richie Incognito, a pending free agent, made it clear on Monday that he prefers to re-sign with Buffalo this offseason.

Left guard Richie Incognito is one of the biggest names on the Buffalo Billslist of 2016 free agents this offseason, and after a very good season in his return to the NFL, he's making it very clear that he'd like to continue his career in Buffalo. As relayed by Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News:

"I want to be here, definitely. I love the attitude of the city of Buffalo. I think I'm a Buffalo guy, I'm a hard-working guy. I come to work every day, I play a physical brand of football.

"I love it here. My teammates have been great, the organization's been great. They've had my back the entire time, so my preference is to be here. But with that being said, obviously there's a business side to things and we've got to work some things out."

Incognito also told reporters that there have not yet been any negotiations between the Bills and his agent, David Dunn. Back on December 8, Bills GM Doug Whaley listed Incognito and left tackle Cordy Glenn as two high-priority re-signing targets for Buffalo this offseason.

The Bills rolled the dice on Incognito last February, signing him to a one-year deal after he'd been out of football for more than a year following a bullying scandal in Miami. The gamble paid off in 2015, as Incognito was arguably the Bills' best lineman on a team that led the NFL in rushing. He'll turn 33 this July, so the Bills will probably try to re-sign him to a short-term deal.
