After several days of negative press surrounding the situation, a long-expected outcome has occurred between the Buffalo Bills and free agent guard Richie Incognito: he's re-signing with the Bills.
Tyler Dunne of The Buffalo News broke the news first.

Incognito himself revealed that it's a three-year deal, and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network followed up by saying that the full value of the deal is $15 million. Dunne has the deal a bit higher at $15.75 million.

Richie Incognito's three-year deal with the Bills is worth $15,750,000.— Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) March 8, 2016
Incognito, who will turn 33 years old this summer, is coming off of an excellent 2015 season in which he re-established himself as one of the better guards in football, while also landing a spot in the Pro Bowl. He'll return to Buffalo's starting lineup next season playing between franchise-tagged (for now) left tackle Cordy Glenn and his fellow Pro Bowl rep, center Eric Wood.
