Veteran offensive lineman Richie Incognito said he has learned from the high-profile bullying scandal involving former Miami Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin and views signing with the Buffalo Bills as his “last chance.”
Richie Incognito said he has learned from the high-profile bullying scandal involving former Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin.
“I told them what I had learned from the whole situation,” Incognito wrote in a text to NFL.com, “that I needed to respect those around me more and that I needed to realize I may find things funny that other find offensive. This whole learning process was about becoming self-aware. About becoming a better person/teammate/leader.
“We mutually expressed that this would be my last chance and we should look at it as a positive,” he added. “Take the opportunity to bring attention to a sensitive subject while proving to people that I’m not a racist jerk. We talked about possible ways to turn this situation around and ways we can impact the community. We had a good talk for about an hour. They met separately. They then came back and said they would like me to be part of the organization.”
The Bills agreed to a deal in principle with Incognito, the team announced Saturday. The deal is for one year and $2.25 million.
