Richie Incognito agrees to reported 1-year deal with Raiders

Richie Incognito reportedly accepts plea deal in case involving funeral home incident

Richie Incognito is back.

The Raiders on Tuesday announced they have signed the free agent guard.

While terms were not disclosed, NFL Media reported the deal is for one year.

Incognito’s agent, Ken Sarnoff, confirmed the signing on Twitter as he congratulated his client.

The Raiders had expressed interest in Incognito earlier this offseason and even hosted him for a visit last week.

Incognito, 35, retired after the 2017 season, then changed his mind. But the Bills released him in May 2018 and he didn’t play last season.

When he announced his retirement, Incognito said he was suffering from liver and kidney failure brought about by stress.

He has also been involved in several controversial incidents during his career. He was suspended in 2013 for threatening and bullying Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin. In January 2018, Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue accused Incognito of using racial slurs in a playoff game.

Incognito then found trouble once again in May 2018, when he was placed on an “involuntary psychiatric hold” after an altercation at a Florida health club.

He was initially selected by the Rams in the third round of the 2005 draft and played with the Dolphins from 2010-13 in addition to his two stints in Buffalo.
