Bills sign Incognito, key figure in bullying scandal (The Associated Press) Courtesy of
Richie Incognito is getting another chance in the NFL. The Buffalo Bills signed the nine-year veteran guard on Monday, providing a second opportunity after his career was derailed by the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal in 2013. ''I personally met with Richie regarding an opportunity to earn a spot on the Buffalo Bills roster,'' Bills owner Terry Pegula said in a statement, adding that general manager Doug Whaley, new coach Rex Ryan and Pegula's co-owner, wife Kim, also spoke with Incognito. ''Obviously, we all discussed Richie's past experience in the NCAA and NFL. Yahoo! Mon, Feb 09
 
Bills to sign Incognito, key figure in bullying scandal (The Associated Press) Courtesy of
The Buffalo Bills are prepared to give Richie Incognito a second chance after the offensive guard's career was derailed by the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal in 2013. The discipline came after an NFL investigation determined Incognito and two other Dolphins offensive linemen engaged in persistent harassment of teammate Jonathan Martin, who left the team. Martin spent last season with San Francisco. Incognito has nine seasons of NFL experience, and briefly played for the Bills in 2009. Yahoo! Sat, Feb 07
 
Buffalo Bills expected to sign troubled guard Richie Incognito (Shutdown Corner) Courtesy of
With the bullying scandal more than a year behind him, offensive guard Richie Incognito appears to be getting another chance in the NFL. The Buffalo News is reporting that the Buffalo Bills are expected to sign Incognito Γ’€” who has not played since being suspended and released by the Miami Dolphins in 2013 Γ’€” to help beef up their line. New head coach Rex Ryan famously said he wanted to "build a bully" when asked how he wanted his team to look, and there's little doubting he's off to a roaring start on that front. Incognito was accused of rampant bullying of former Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin over a couple of seasons, which eventually led to the Wells Report Γ’€” an NFL-funded investigation Γ’€” spilling the sordid details to the world. Incognito, 31, is expected to sign soon, pending the results of a physical. He last played in the NFL in Week 9 of the 2013 season. Over his career, Incognito has started all 103 games he has played for the St. Louis Rams, Bills and Dolphins. Incognito was claimed off waivers by the Bills for three games to finish the 2009 season after the Rams waived him when he didn't fit in with the team anymore and was too penalty-prone. He left the Bills that following offseason to sign with the Dolphins in 2010. A year ago, the NFL lifted Incognito's suspension and he visited three teams for workouts Γ’€” the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos Γ’€” all of whom passed on signing him over this past season. But with Ryan and offensive coordinator Greg Roman, Incognito might be a perfect fit, especially at a position of such need. They want to run the ball and they want to maul people Γ’€” both fit Incognito's style perfectly. What was forgotten during his blackball period was that Incognito was a very good guard, but Ryan must hope that Incognito can be a good teammate, too. Trouble has followed him everywhere he has been, from two colleges (Oregon and Nebraska) and three NFL teams. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

Aaron Rodgers blames Buccaneers' bad field conditions for calf injury (Shutdown Corner) Courtesy of
Aaron Rodgers has to be happy that the Green Bay Packers will not be traveling to Tampa next season. On his ESPN Milwaukee radio show ( via ESPN.com ), Rodgers says he suffered the calf injury that affected his play down the stretch was the result of playing on a crummy field against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 16. "The calf was, in my opinion, due to the poor surface in Tampa," Rodgers said. "Tampa is where I hurt my shoulder as well back in 2008, and I think that there needs to be looked at some more uniformity as far as the field conditions." The calf severely limited Rodgers from the Week 17 win over the Detroit Lions through the Packers' NFC championship loss against the Seattle Seahawks. He said that Tampa's field conditions are similar to some other poor surfaces around the NFL, even with some very good ones as well. "I think there's a couple of surfaces that are more likely to create injury than prevent injury," Rodgers said. "There's some incredible surfaces in the NFL. There's some ones that I think need to be looked at. Tampa is one of them because of the amount of play, I think, that happens there. "When you put down so much sod and it's very uneven and soft, I think it can lead to more injuries. I've played there three times and been hurt there Γ’€” in my opinion, directly related to the field Γ’€” twice." The NFLPA does an annual poll of its players who vote on the worst playing surfaces around the league, so it will be interesting to see where Raymond James Stadium comes in on their list. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.
